Are you planning on visiting Alkmaar? Then of course you should not miss the famous Alkmaar cheese market on Fridays on the Waagplein (www.kaasmarkt.nl), but Alkmaar is also a wonderful city to visit on any other day. The historic centre has around 400 monuments and is a perfect location to enjoy the historic atmosphere, but also to shop; you'll find the most interesting shops in Alkmaar. In the Langestraat and Laat you will find the bigger and well known store chains. But don’t miss out on the smaller stores and boutiques in d’Oude Stad (Old City). Alkmaar also has a large number of restaurants, many with cosy outdoor seating. Enjoy wonderful museums and events during your stay, such as Kaeskoppenstad.
