Alkmaar is easy to explore on foot. With this city walk you can taste the historic atmosphere in the cozy city center. And get to know the Oudorp district, a former village.

Historic Alkmaar
The medieval center of Alkmaar is not considered a protected cityscape for nothing. Here you will find a succession of canals, old courtyards and ancient houses. In a word: beautiful! You walk a bit along the Kennemersingel where the Molen van Piet is located, a flour mill from 1769 that was built on the Clarissenbolwerk. On the other side of the water you will see the Sint-Josephkerk from 1909. You will also pass through the Fnidsen, a beautiful old shopping street with many monumental buildings.

You can also admire some sights in Oudorp, such as the striking White Church from 1858 on the Herenweg. A little further on you pass the Sint-Laurentiuskerk from 1880. You walk into the meadows of the Oudorperhout, the remnants of a once larger agricultural area. At the Hoornse Vaart you will pass four monumental ironing mills from 1630.
