Alkmaar is above all Holland's cheese town. There's a famous cheesemarket every Friday. The season runs from the first Friday of April to the first Friday of September. The cheesemarket takes place between 10.00 and 12:30. Cheeses are then sold by dealers on a clap of hands.
Pay a visit to one of the most beautiful and historical parts of the country. The city is not only popular for it cheese market there is (website hidden) example you can take canal boat tour and visit places like De Waag ( Weighing House). The beautiful wooden house dating back to 1557. Also you shouldn't miss the historical sights, like the national Biermuseum (De Boom), the different Windmills spread around the city and many more.
The city centre of Alkmaar is also great for shopping, there's a large variety of shops for everyone. There are many cosy and good restaurants to be found, we can give you good suggestions. And last but not least the nightlife in the city is nice & cosy.
The apartment is called KNus. It's 60m2 and it is in the city centre.

Lovely flat. 10mins walk to the city centre. The flat is overlooking a river/lake. Stunning view. Clean and modern. We really enjoyed our stay. Thank you.
The flat is really well furnished like described, everything was here to feel like at home (bed sheets, towels, coffee).
We were a bit cold the first night and our host kindly upgraded the whole heating (everything by email ! Instant answer!)
By the way Alkmaar is a wonderful city and you must loose yourself on the street to appreciate.
One of the most advantage and nonetheless drawback is the spot, you are near the Chanel and everything like Markt, so with no surprise that's a bit noisy but we slept well ! :)
So that's a HUGE ++++ (and that bathroom ! perfect to relax)
PS: This flat is perfect for people with low mobility (like my grandmother - 0 step on the flat ! even in the shower)
We arrived relatively late. Karlijn was waiting for us to let us in as soon as we arrive. Apartament is clean and cosy, well equiped. Beds are comfortable. As it is located close to center, street is noisy till late.
