We’ve been to Alkmaar! It was a wonderful opportunity last weekend to go and see what it was like to live in Alkmaar in the 16th Century.
The old centre of town was blocked off to traffic and the roads closed with locals dressed up in period costumes. Would you like to know more?
I’ve been adventuring again! I headed up North to spend a day in Alkmaar with a friend.
This beautiful old city (what city have I shown you yet from the Netherlands is that isn’t entirely picturesque?) was first recorded as a settlement in the 9th Century and then granted city rights in 1254. (source) Would you like to know more?
