Experience a Real Dutch Market
Once a buyer has finished, men in white costumes carry the wheels of cheese to a 14th-century Weigh House to tally the bill. At Alkmaar Market you get to experience this, as well as admire the competing teams of the Cheese Carriers’ Guild and watch as the cheeses are piled high on the cobblestone square at Alkmaar Market.
After a guided walk around the market and lunch (not included) we will go to Schermerhorn, famous for its three old windmills, one of which we will visit.
The tour is available in English, German and Spanish.
