Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    I'd been critical of two large churches in Amsterdam the previous day and as I walked into this church I had the same initial impression looking at some of the photographs posted near the entrance. However, going further in I realised that this is a grand church.

    The ceilings are magnificently high and have some nice decorations. The organ is enormous too. They had some beautiful music being played through their speakers which set a lovely calmness over the church.

    Unlike Amsterdam, there were no entrance fees to come in here.

    One always worries about weight (airline restrictions), transit damages (Packing) number of gifts and total cost. This shop takes care of all worries, maximum number of a wide array of gifts, light weight, good individual packaging and reasonable cost. Also, one can get rid of change in purses, to reduce weight..!

    Ww walked one of the many routes through the neighboring fields and meadows (cows considered us an attraction and followed us) and along ditches and barbed wire which in the end turned into a 10 mile walk. The last mile and a half covered more rural territory and had us walk past the windmill. Luckily there was a bench and a blue sky. What a lovely sight it was. From below it is huge and it looks very well maintained. It's still in use and people still live in it.

    The northeast wing of the building at Langestraat maybe from 1520, but the facade is late 19th century. The tower as well underwent significant changes (the upper part was added). Still overall it is an attractive almost festive building.

    The construction and architecture of this building is not to be missed. The murals, the brickwork, the details, let alone the history, make this building a must see while in Alkmaar. Located on the central square the tower is impossible to miss!

    This lovely windmill is open to the public for tours, a nice cup of organic tea or coffee, and tasty cakes. The welcome is warm and friendly. In the shop you can buy freshly milled organic flours, herbs and spices and other delicious products!
