Discover Alkmaar

Atmospheric cheese town with beautiful old town

Welcome to Alkmaar

Alkmaar is best known as the cheese town. But besides the Cheese Market there is much more to do in this historic city. Stroll through d'Oude stad with its authentic shops, visit one of the hidden courtyards or find the cosiness on the Waagplein or the Platte Stenenbrug. With its beautiful canals, Alkmaar is also good to discover from the water. Go on a cruise or navigate under the low bridges with a rented boat.
