Alkmaar seen from the water
Alkmaar at its best!
During a 45 minute tour, you will discover what Alkmaar used to be like and what it has become. In a Giethoornse punter, a very low barge, you will explore the canals, passing underneath the many little bridges and discovering many historic places. As you will see, Alkmaar is at its best seen from the water!
During the tour a guide will tell you all you want to know. If you would prefer to explore the canals on your own, there are several businesses where you can rent a smaller boat to go your own way. Contact the local tourist office (VVV) for more information.
