What to do when in Alkmaar?
The shops and the city centre are at a five minute walk. Alkmaar is a nice shopping city. In the streets ‘Laat' and ‘Langestraat' you will find the large retail shops. In the many small side streets are a lot of boutiques and gift shops.
Do you want to shop in Amsterdam? By train it will only take you 40 minutes. By car approximately 30 minutes since my apartment is only a minute away from the highway towards the capital of the Netherlands.
North Holland (Noord-Holland) is known for its diverse surroundings. Alkmaar is close to the beaches of Egmond and Bergen. On a summer day you can sunbathe or enjoy a beer or wine at the beach pavilions. In Schoorl you can make walk through the beautiful forest. For mountainbike lovers there is a challenging mountainbike trail. Or you can walk or run through the dunes of Egmond.
Alkmaar is the cheese city of the Netherlands. Every Friday (from 3 april to 4 September) from 10.00 till 12.30 hrs you can visit the traditional cheese market place on the Waagplein. Also nice to see in Alkmaar: the Beer Museum and Stedelijk Museum if you want to know more about the history of Alkmaar.
Fancy a day to chill? In the Rijp (23 km) is Beemster Fort Resort, a beautiful sauna. In Amsterdam (45 km) Sauna Spa Zuiver is a nice location to relax.
In the neighbourhood are many nice restaurants. For example Vito (only 200 meters from my apartment) were you can eat good food. Or Italica Ristobar (at 600 meters) which is a very good Italian restaurant.
Obviously, I can provide you with many more tips in the area. I hope to see you soon!

- Please lock the door at night or when you leave.
- I do not have extra cleaning costs, so please leave the house a bit clean.
