The favourite spots in Alkmaar van Thomas
Thomas is one of the founders of LeukeTip and has made a guide for Alkmaar. With the varied guide you will experience a complete day in this Cheese Town and you will arrive at places you would never have found otherwise. By working for LeukeTip I ended up in Alkmaar, my hometown, in places I didn't know yet. This is because they were well hidden in a side street or were quite new in the city.
Looking for a gift or just something original. Atelier de Voordam is full of unique and artistic products, made by people with disabilities.
With more than 60,000 miniature cars, the largest car showroom in the Netherlands. But also nostalgic toys made of wood and tin can be found here.
Organic soups, fair coffee, vintage furniture and sugar-free pastries. SOOPPP is 100% vegetarian and also always offers vegan options.
With your feet in the sand, you can imagine yourself on the beach. During the summer months, the enthusiastic staff will let you experience the real summer feeling.
The best spots for a perfect coffee and cake
Hidden under large chestnut trees is the Kruithuisje. Enjoy a cup of coffee or tea in this small 5-metre gallery.
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.
The tastiest artisan fries of Alkmaar can be found at the Vlaminck. Delicious with mayonnaise, joppie, samurai or one of the other sauces.
Away from the busy and noisy city centre? Then step into this hidden courtyard and enjoy the tranquility of this historic courtyard garden
Nice B&B's in the city center of Alkmaar
Taste the famous Lane ice cream. They've been selling one type of ice cream for almost 70 years: vanilla ice cream. Delicious with fruit, nougat or chocolate on top.
In addition to cozy indoors, you can also enjoy a nice special beer on the deck barge that is docked in front of the tasting room.
This church from the 15th century can be visited. The beautiful interior is also a regular stage for exhibitions, conventions and concerts.
The information of this place is unfortunately no longer available on LeukeTip.
