I will tell you some interesting things but you will discover that there is a lot more to see and explore.
ALKMAAR and NEIGHBOURHOOD In Alkmaar are several museums, a cheese market (april-september), a round trip through the canals, theater, cinema's and very interesting possibilities for walking and shopping in the centre. Outside the city is walking also an attractive choice but our province is very suitable for trips with a bike on several hundred kilometers cyclke tracks with an excellent signposting.
You can visit the polders that form the typical interesting landscape of our province that is situated below sea level. A system of dikes, windmills, ditches and canals take care that in this region all inhabitants can live safely. At the borders of this landscape of polders you will find, the dunes and forest (national parc 10.000 ha), small villages with an special quality and medieval towns (Enkhuizen, Hoorn, Medemblik and Edam). In the spring you can admire the bulb fields. Exploring by foot, bike or with your car or public transport it can fill your whole stay.
The sea and the broad sandy beach, lakes and canals and don't forget the IJsselmeer (lake) created by building a dike of 30 kilometers in the former Zuiderzee (sea) are other points of attention worth to visit.
