In the summer holiday there is a 'Children's Cheese Market', a special tour for children between the ages of 6 and 12. A guide tells the children about everything that can be seen here. At the end, they are allowed to go on the cheese scale and are given a prestigious weighing certificate.
Unfortunately the Children's Cheese Market has been cancelled as well due to the measures taken against the spread of Corona.
Stalls offering delicious cakes, art and natural cheese can be found around the Cheese Market. After the Cheese Market, organ concerts often take place in the Grote Kerk Alkmaar. Want to see more of Alkmaar? Take a city walk through the historic town centre.
