Description

The old city center of Alkmaar is easy to discover by bike. From the city you can also cycle into the vast polder to the Alkmaarder and Uitgeestermeer.

twin lake
In the polder you cycle through a characteristic Dutch landscape of grasslands, ditches and high skies. In this surprisingly quiet area you can take a good look around you. You pass the Noordermolen from 1589 and, a little further on, the Oude Knegt corn mill. Along the banks of the Alkmaarder and Uitgeestermeer you can take a break and look out over the rippling water. An ideal way to clear your head.

Old cheese town
Limmen has become the center of bulb cultivation. The Flower Days are held here every spring. You can also visit the Hortus Bulborum here, a unique museum garden where more than 4000 different spring bulb plants have been collected. In Alkmaar you can visit many historic buildings. There are no fewer than 399 national monuments in the old town, wow!
