With hundreds of monuments, medieval courtyards and historic facades of picturesque canal houses, Alkmaar is like a hidden gem that offers a perfect escape from the Amsterdam city crowds. It only takes a convenient direct train ride to plan your own day to Alkmaar. 

Enjoy a 1.5 hour walking tour of Alkmaar with your private group and an enthusiastic guide. Learn about the city's interesting history and cultural life. You will certainly be impressed by the city's architectural beauty with historical canal houses, de Waag and a traditional atmosphere.

Follow your guide who leads the way through quaint alleyways with cobble-stoned streets where no other tourists are to be found. There are so many medieval squares and hidden courtyards in the city to discover with this off-the-beaten path walking tour. You can't miss the beautiful historical architecture and the lively atmosphere. Admire the Waag, the famous cheese weigh house and let yourself be taken back in time. Learn about those 'undiscovered', authentic hotspots that are favored by the locals. The best way to explore local life!

Make sure to have enough space on your phone to take plenty of photos because no matter where you look there's something great to see. Wander a bit off to take that perfect shot, because with the headsets that are used during the tour you can hear your guide clearly even from a distance.  

Every thirty minutes a direct train departs from Amsterdam Central Station to Alkmaar. For more travel information and to book tickets check the website of the national railway company.
