Arriving at Alkmaar at midnight

Hi. Is there a nightbus from the Alkmaar metro station going around the town? We're arriving past midnight and need to reach our airbnb which is 2km away from Alkmaar station.

If you're arriving at Schiphol at 11:35 PM there is no way you're going to be in Alkmaar at midnight. I've arrived in Alkmaar late night and caught a taxi at the train station but not as late as you're arriving. Don't know if there will be one there for that last train or not. If you catch that last train.

There are always taxi's at Alkmaar Station — if it is only 2km from the station to your airbnb then you may want to rent a bike at the station. There is a bicycle parking and in the office they rent bikes. It is the bets way to navigate Alkmaar anyway and they come handy when you return by train as well. I live 2km from the train station and typically carry my small stroller on the rack of my bicycle when going to the airport.

2km is quite walkable too. The city is super safe. But it depends on the luggage you are carrying with you.

Bicycle is the way to go but luggage is usually an issue. Look up some taxi places, write down the numbers and if you get tp the station and there are no taxis then just call one. If you are on a tight budget or just like saving money you can walk, which is also nice. Obviously your luggage must be light or have strong wheels. Or you can ask your host if they can pick you up.

The wheels on my "travel professional quality" luggage literally fell apart on the cobble streets of Bruges. So I put rollerblade wheels on it and now I walk with my luggage for anything under 2 km. I have saved quite a bit of money this way.

If the worry is about taxis being there that late what the chances are of getting a bike rental.
