  • Alkmaar: Small Group City Walking Tour

    1. Alkmaar: Small Group City Walking Tour

    The charming town of Alkmaar is compact, walkable and historically rich, with a beautiful medieval center. On this small group tour, enjoy walking through the cobbled streets and along picturesque canals as your guide tells you all about the town's history. Walk 3-4 km through the medieval center and see some of Alkmaar's most important and historic monuments such as the Grote Sint Laurenskerk (the Great St. Lawrence Church), the Stadhuis (City Hall) and the Waag (Weigh House). Learn all about the history of Alkmaar and how the strength and the determination of the townspeople managed to defeat the Spanish forces in 1573. Stop at the Molen van Piet (Piet's Windmill) for the perfect Dutch photo opportunity. You will also get an insight into Dutch culture and way of life from a foreigner's perspective. You will not only see some of Alkmaar's most iconic monuments, but you will also wander...

    Great walking tour around a beautiful city center with a nice guide. We visited all tourist places plus charming deserted streets. Tour was happened even with me alone.
