Alkmaar City – Cheese market and more

North of Amsterdam is Alkmaar. This city does not belong to the countryside but is one of the most important locations for a rural product, namely Dutch Cheese. For more than 700 years, the traditional Alkmaar cheese market has been held in Alkmaar during the summer months. Definitely a reason to visit this beautiful city.
