Monuments and cheese

The most important sights that your private guide will show are the public weighing house, home to the weekly cheesemarket on Fridays during the summer (april – first Friday September), Saint Lauren Church and the pretty 16thcentury constructed town hall. House with the bullet is a wooden building from the 16th century with a bullet in its façade dating back to the days of the war against Spain in 1573.

See the lively shoppingstreets and relax on of the many terraces in Alkmaar. The town of Alkmaar has over 400 monuments and is the oldest city in this part of the country, most likely founded by the Romans.

Your visit to Alkmaar is made complete with a visit to the Cheesemuseum. In this museum you will learn all about the process of cheesemaking from milk to the cheese you find back home in your local supermarket.
