Get a taste of Holland’s charming traditions as you discover the historic city of Alkmaar and the windmills of Schermerhorn. This tour will first take you to Alkmaar that is over 700 years old. Here, discover its main attraction – the bustling cheese market. Partake in age-old traditions as you make your way through the busy market. You can catch the ancient tradition of weighing out and tasting the cheese. Witness the quaint ritual that comes with cheese buying. When the buyer has completed the purchase, two men, dressed in white, come by and carry out the wheels of cheese. Once they reach the Weigh House that has been standing since the 14th century, the cheese is presented and the bill tallied. Once you’ve had enough of cheese, make your way to Schermerhorn, a small town nearby. Here, you can admire the three, centuries-old windmills that have stood the test of time. A great way to discover the heritage of Holland!
