Alkmaar : Michelin's recommendations
This historic town owes its current reputation to its picturesque cheese market (weekly). Alkmaar is also the main centre of the farming regions of the Noord Holland peninsula. The old town has preserved almost intact its 17C layout and many old façades within its surrounding moats. The old fortifications have been converted into a garden.
