When you are visiting Alkmaar, VVV Alkmaar is of course the starting point for your day out! They will tell you what you absolutely can not miss when visiting this beautiful monumental cheese town. They are located in one of the most beautiful icons of Alkmaar, the Waag building, where the cheese market takes place on the Friday between April and September. In the spacious store you will find a wide range of gift vouchers and of course real Alkmaar (cheese) souvenirs.

After its fall, segments of the wall have been installed in various parts of the world, symbolising the importance of unity over division. In 2021, these two pieces were relocated to their current place as part of a project to protect them.
Bruns was responsible for the entire project from engineering to producing and the realisation on site. The biggest challenge in this case was obtaining permits to work, unload and block the area of operation. Good communication with all the involved parties has made it possible.
