Parking and Public Transport


Parking and Public Transport

Parking your car.....

The cheese market is in the centre of Alkmaar.
Around the centre are several parking garages and parking lots.
You can follow the clearly indicated ‘P’ route.
We do not recommend- because of the crowds – to take your car into the city centre.
Look on a map for the garages and parking lots.
