Explore the cozy courtyards of Alkmaar, cycle along the old canals and discover the narrow streets. Do not miss a visit to the traditional cheese market, for which the "Cheese Town" became so famous and soak up the atmosphere of the historic center, which has hundreds of beautiful municipal and national monuments. The route starts at Camping Buitenenduin in Schoorl, the perfect base for a weekend in this area. The campsite is hidden in the middle of the forest and you are on the beach in no time. Admirers of traditional Dutch heritage can also indulge themselves during this cycling tour: there are five beautiful windmills along the route. When you arrive in Schoorldam, you will see the Kijkduin windmill on a small elevation. A wonderful cycling route to unwind!
