Part of the market is reserved for groups. Under the guidance of our guides, you can experience the market at close quarters. In addition to the cheese market itself, you can also take a look at the weighing area and the cheese carrier room.

Guided tour cheesemarket

During the season the cheese market can be visited on Friday morning between 10 and half past one with a guide. This way you can see up close how the inspection, carrying and weighing of the cheese works. What do the colours of the cheese carriers mean? Who are the men in the white coats? Our guide will answer all questions about the tradition for which Alkmaar is so famous. In addition, the guide will take you into the Waagbuilding and you will arrive at places where the "ordinary visitor" does not come! The visit to the cheese market can also be combined with a visit to the cheese museum or a city walk.
