alkmaar things to do | Cities to visit in Noord-Holland |

If you are looking for the best things to do in Alkmaar, where to eat in Alkmaar, then you’ve come to the right website. Alkmaar is a city in the area of ‘De Kop van Noord-Holland’ (the top of Noord-Holland) and currently houses around 107.000 people. Alkmaar got it’s borough rights in the middle of the 13th century.

The people who live within Alkmaar are called ‘kaaskoppen’, this means cheese heads and refers to the cheese market of Alkmaar. Visiting the cheese market of Alkmaar is one of the things you have to do when you’re there. However, the city has so much more to offer and most visitors of the cheese market don’t explore the city itself.

This is what I’m, hopefully, changing. Have a look at the articles I’ve written, so far, below.
