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.

    Great event with many lovely spots and many engaged actors.
    Absolutely worth all cents for entry.
    Do not miss it ... fun and facts for small, young and elderly.

    The court predates 1572 and was a monastery. In that year it housed townspeople made homeless due construction of new city defenses against the Spanish. Later it was used as home for the elderly. It currently houses a restaurant with the same name.
    Anyway, we sat outside in the court yard and had a cup of coffee, while admiring the looks of this obviously very old place. It's surprisingly quiet for its location in the heart of the old city.

    It was interesting to learn that this building was moved to this location from it's original place. We always love to see historical landmarks in the places we visit in Europe and to realize how old this building was and to see it's beautiful condition is astounding to us.

    Whereas the days of fish gutting, cleaning and selling have long gone, the building work here still allows you to imagine how it was. Now, it is a lively area with several very good restaurants and bars.

    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!

    Located just across the canal from the cheese market and opposite the start of the Red light street you will find this historical location. It is the green building with a cannon ball on the top left corner shot during the Spanish attack in 1573. The building has a very interesting construction on with higher levels over hanging the next layer down. This construction was to minimise the impact of rainfall and snow.
