Alkmaar, April 2017…
It’s that time of the year again. Many outdoor activities are taking place. From April till September, every Friday, the traditional Cheese market in Alkmaar is held. In the Middle Ages, it was common practice to establish a guild for every profession, the cheese carriers established theirs in 1593. Nowadays, many locals and tourists visit Alkmaar to see an old tradition at the cheese market, a spectacle which includes a market filled with cheese and hauling cheese carriers. Even The Dutchman did.

After seeing cheese, maybe you’re wondering how cheese is made? No problem, The Dutchman will take you to a farm for a hands-on cheese workshop and taking care of the farm animals. And if you’re into outdoor sports you can also do some skeet shooting, stone throwing or farmer golf. And there is more… for the foodies we can organize beer tastings, a farmer lunch or dinner on the land overlooking the farm and windmills. Interested?
