Long Description:
"Anyone who wants can pay a visit to the kissing cheese girl since July of this year ... yes and why not kiss her lips and kiss her, even if she is only bronze instead of flesh and blood, the" Lekker Meisje "certainly has it very own charm ... and certainly it will be with many of the famous siblings (such as the dog in Edinburgh - I think it is also smooched) the ritual of the special lucky charm - sooner or later - share.

As already betrayed are such bronze figures, as city mascots and landmarks, in many cities worldwide. People like to touch such figures - that is supposed to bring good luck. The points of contact can usually be seen well at first glance, so they usually shimmer, usually much brighter and brighter (almost like gold) than the rest of the statue.

The cheese girl (with a classic cheese cap - Mrs. Antje sends greetings ?? - and spilled lips) was ceremonially unveiled on July 22, 2016 and is now waiting for kisses, curious tourists and, above all, cheese lovers. Because in Alkmaar there is not only a cheese girl, but also a cheese market.

Location of the kissing cheese girl: Waaggebouws (carriage building), at the market square in Alkmaar.

The cheese girl was donated by Cono Kaasmakers - who in turn produce the premium Beemster cheese and are the main supplier of the world-famous (at cheese connoisseurs) Alkmaar cheese market. In a detour job as a food blogger, I was allowed to try the absolutely delicious cheese before. As a cheese fan, the cheese convinced me absolutely, but only marginally ... ??

The Kissing Cheesegirl was designed by sculptor Fabio Pravisani, after a design by the artist Gerard Velzeboer. That sometimes as Randinfo, if among our readers design students and connoisseurs. By the way, for the Kusmeisje was a real Meisje model. The young Dutchwoman Denise van Dort from Heerhugowaard (a neighboring town) is the face behind the statue. She was spotted accidentally during a photo shoot of Beemster cheese.

How many people have actually already kissed the new landmark in Alkmaar, you do not know ... but does not matter ... - or ?! A popular photo opportunity is the cheese girl but in any case already ...

In this sense: Lekker Meisje - lekker Kusje - lekker Kaas!"
