Interaction with Guests
We will have contact as much as needed and I am easy to contact by phone, mail, whatsapp or sms.
The old and historical centre of Alkmaar is right at door and at the back of the apartment you look over a big and old square.
The apartment is situated in a nice and quit street close to all the high lights Alkmaar has to offer. In fact the street is one of the oldest streets and due to the architecture the street has a relaxed vibe.
On fridays Alkmaar has the 'Kaasmarkt' which is famous world wide. Also do a canal cruise experience for a historical and different point of view on the city.
The beach of Bergen is only a 40 minutes bicycle ride (recommend!) or a 20 minutes bus drive.
Cities like Amsterdam, Zaandam are just 30-35 minutes by train.
Within less than 10 minutes walk from the Alkmaar station you reach my apartment.
Bicycle is the best way for transportation around Alkmaar and also for visiting Bergen (15 min) and the beach.
For longer distances and visit other cities, like Amsterdam (35 min) and Zaandam, public transportation is easy to do and the main bus stop is right in front of the apartment (2 min walk).
Car parking can be expensive but we can arrange a parking spot in a garage near the house (2 min walk). Please get our advice on that.
