    ALKMAAR WATER TOWER

    You can hire the top floor of the water tower which is a meeting room and can hold some 20 people. Includes kitchen and toilet and a grand terrace overlooking Alkmaar and beyond. Truly impressive.

    ALKMAAR WATER TOWER

    ALKMAAR WATER TOWER

    The water basin can now be used for parties up to some 50-70 people. True, it looks bleak and no windows but it's an unusual space to decorate and party in.

    ALKMAAR WATER TOWER

    Part of the outside wall has been broken away to make a window and let in some light. The diagonal shape on the right is the bottom of the water basin.

    Taking a canal trip in this town is a must. It is interesting to see things from a different perspective. Just to see the archetecture in this town is amazing.
