Alone among all human cities, Alkmaar has a Dwarven Fortress. The first Doge of Alkmaar granted the founders almost complete extraterritoriality and authority over dwarven affairs inside the Fortress.

It is built in sturdy stone, has tall towers at the corners, a stout tower in the middle with an Elder Hall, and most of all it has doors. Big, sturdy doors made of oak and metal, the Fortress is cerimonially sealed every evening as a tradition (and to prove the point that it can be closed to humans).
