The Cheese Market Hoorn is only on during a limited part of the year, the high season for touristic visitors. It is smaller than the Cheese Market of Alkmaar (top) and similar to that of Gouda. Hoorn is a nice city though, worth your visit,...More

Reading other reviews I agree that the re-enactment can be a little kitsch and contrived but I feel it is important from a cultural perspective to not lose sight of some of these quaint traditions. There are so many ugly things happening in the world...More

The cheese market is contrived. The majority of the show is done in Dutch. And most amazingly, only one cheese outlet was open. At least it was free, but definitely give this one a miss!

It was great to see this old tradition. The men do a really great job in reenacting the old market feel.

It is very interesting to see the former cheese markets. During the presentation they offer samples of the cheese they produce and sell. The children have the opportunity to go on a chariot ride and they just love it!The presentation could be shorter.

We had been in the area for almost six weeks and had somehow missed the cheese markets in any of the nearby towns, so we made the effort to be at the one in Hoorn last Thursday. We quite enjoyed it, but felt that it...More

We visited the cheese market on thursday noon. It was really nice. Not to many people, the kids can participate, we tasted the cheese and enjoyed it. The town is little and pretty.

It's fun for everyone to watch the cheese carriers and it is in a pretty setting (although it has a bloody history - read about the square in a guide book to see what I mean). The town of Hoorn is a really pretty little...More
