One comment on “Alkmaar”

Those who wish to move to Alkmaar should know it is a beautiful and historical city. Every Friday during summer there is the opportunity to witness the Cheese Market (or Kaasmarkt in Dutch). There is the canal, which runs through the city center, and on which you are able to rent a boat. Alkmaar, being a very traditional city, will require you to have basic Dutch language skills to get by.
