Christmas Fair Alkmaar

Christmas Fair Alkmaar

Dec 14, 2017Dec 17, 2017

The beautiful city of Alkmaar plays host to a fun Christmas Fair for four days in December.

The event used to take place on the Paardenmarkt, but in 2017, for the first time, the Waagplein will be where it all goes down. The Waagplein is also where the annual Cheese Market is held. The Waagplein is located right in the historic city centre, and the local architecture really adds to the vibe of the place.

The fair offers all kinds of winter wares like warm woollen clothing and accessories. You will also find plenty of presents to put under the Christmas tree, and decorations to fill your house with seasonal spirit.

Food and activities

The square will be filled with wooden Christmas chalets, where smells of cooking meats and glühwein will entice you to grab a bite or drink while you are shopping.

Various games and activities will add to the holiday fun. Take a picture with Santa Claus and his elves, see performances from the Christmas carollers, check out the moving Christmas tree and try out the ski simulator. You can also have your Christmas presents wrapped up extra nicely.
