Stop by the Alkmaar's Waagplein square to indulge in the tastes and traditions of the famous Cheese Market. The Alkmaar region is renowned for its cheese, and the makers have been selling their product in the city for at least 400 years. After the bell opens the market, the whole square erupts with activity. See how the experts inspect the cheese, witness the frantic haggling, admire the special walk of the carriers who haul huge loads of cheese on barrows suspended from their shoulders, and don't miss the chance to do some tasting and bargaining yourself. To improve your understanding of the market activities, check out the presentations, available in various languages. The market is in the center of the city and is easily accessible by car or public transportation from other cities. Plan your visit to Cheese Market and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Alkmaar vacation builder.

  • 在一個陽光普照的日子,來參觀這個非常棒的交易活動。著傳統服飾的工人,挑著乳酪進入廣場,一旁傳統服飾裝扮的小女生穿梭在人群中兜售,真是熱鬧又有趣的盛會。廣場周圍還有好多的商店和攤位,可以好好的逛逛。 
  • There is no market Edam cheese, real places to Akmaar. I think that he is trying more to take advantage of the city's name. But it is pleasant to walk an hour in the city.
