A day out in Alkmaar

Alkmaar: a nice day out!

Alkmaar is a great city to spend a day. The traditional cheese market is a spectacle for people of all ages. Perfect to combine with a visit to the museum. But Alkmaar has plenty more to offer!

Something for everyone

The historic centre of Alkmaar has a lot of attractive squares and historic buildings. Apart from the Cheese Museum, there are a number of other interesting museums in Alkmaar, including the Stedelijk Museum Alkmaar, the Beatles Museum and the beer museum De Boom. There are also numerous cosy cafés and restaurants. Alkmaar is in the top-10 of the nicest shopping cities in the Netherlands, so there’s plenty of opportunity for some retail therapy if that’s what you’re looking for!
