Let yourself be surprised by the unique character of the streets in this district. The old merchant and warehouses now offer space for creative shops.
Enjoy the special atmosphere that hangs here. In the 2nd half of the 19th century, the Fnidsen, the Hekelstraat, the Appelsteeg and the Mient were the shopping and craft centre of Alkmaar. Customers came by boat and went into d'Oude Stad to do shopping. Nowadays, details of this past can still be seen. In addition to the beautiful facades, look inside. There are now many authentic and creative shops in the old merchant and warehouses.
