Quite some time ago I promised Carol to show why anyone would visit my town. The first reason that would come into mind would be ‘The Cheese market’. This is organised every Friday in spring and summer, and attracts a lot of tourists from all over the world. As it is too early in the year I can’t show any pictures of that.
The reason I love Alkmaar, is because it is an old city, with lots of old buildings remained in a very good condition, and above all, because of all the canals and bridges. The most famous building is of course the ‘Waag’, in front of which the cheese market is held, but also the city hall and the big church are beautiful. I would say: enjoy a walk on a very sunny Sunday afternoon!
