Alkmaar is your typical Dutch old city. Alkmaar is famous for cheese, but there is much major and the Stedelijk Museum has attractive exhibitions.

We enjoyed the temporary exhibitions, especially the one of Van Blaaderen. The Picasso exhibition was a bit disappointing with only 2 paintings and a chair. The Golden age collection of paintings is impressive just like the 'Bergen School'-collection. Would recommend for a visit.
