Itinerary

The Dutch cheese production is nowadaysin the hands of dairy factories, which produce and export their cheeses around the world in millions of tonnes every year. The cheese markets of Alkmaar remind us of the days of a flourishing trade and have become popular tourist attractions today.
You’ll believe that you’ve stepped back in time when you visit the cheese market of Alkmaar. Without a doubt, the Alkmaar cheese market is the main attraction in town. The tradition of this Cheese Market goes way back to1365, as there was only one set of scales for weighing, cheese was traded on the Waagplein. The cheese was delivered early in the morning, and the cheese market masters and traders would check to see whether the cheeses had been well stacked. Up to 30,000 kilos, or 2200 whole cheeses, are lined up and waiting for customers.

Before enjoying some free time to discover the cheese market and the city on your own, embark on a brief guided walking tourthroughAlkmaar by an informative, friendly and professional live guide.
