Storage lockers in Train Station?

We will be coming from Brugges in the morning and heading strait to Alkmaar to see the market on Fridays. We will have our backpacks with us and I was curious as to if there was storage at this train station. Not a big deal if not we will just carry them with us but it would be nice to get them off our backs for our time in Alkmaar. Thanks!

The NS site indicates that Alkmaar station does have lockers, yep.

All the best,

There are lockers. But I don't know how big your bags are, so they could be too small. If so, you could ask at the stations bicycle garage if they want to look after your bags for a small amount. Don't forget to visit the Kapelkerk in Alkmaar. It is a beautiful old protestant church near the market. My father will be there to welcome tourists. Maybe you can store your bags somewhere in the church if you couldn't get rid of them.

Lockers are on platform 2/3 and are in different sizes however there are not many.

Be careful, the lockers in central are sort of one use only. If you open it after locking you have to pay again. Just be careful you have everything you want out of your bags.

Can we store medium sizes suitcases in these lockers?

Since I live at Alkmaar, I've taken a photo of the lockers.

I estimate that they are about 2 meters high in total, see this picture:

Wow, such a nice offer by Motto1 and the OP does not even respond to it! And another guy went out of his way to take a photo of the lockers and all he gets is a meak 'thank you'.

I'll say it instead: wow guys, that is so nice of you!

I'm well and truly chided Cecile 74 - all I can say in my defence is things are not going too well at home right now.

I'm a great fan of TA and all it has done to help me with my travels.

Well done! Keep up the good work!
