I'm a cheesy city, containing auk but in the main language of the country I'm in. I have a sports team that got crowned champions of my country twice. Also placed within me is a museum dedicated to a band that once tried to remake The Lord Of The Rings.

What city am I?

I would say it's

Alkmaar, Netherlands

I'm a cheesy city

One of the greatest cheese markets in the world is in Alkmaar.

Containing auk but in the main language of the country I'm in.

Thanks to @LordofDark and @MichaSprengers: "auk but" in Dutch is "Alk Maar"

I have a sports team that got crowned twice.

The local football team AZ Alkmaar won the national championship twice, in 1981 and 2009

Also placed within me is a museum dedicated to a band that once tried to remake The Lord Of The Rings.

There is a museum dedicated to the Beatles, who unsucessfully tried to adapt The Lord Of The Rings.

  • $\begingroup$ Is it really a city though? I would have thought of it as a town. $\endgroup$ – Mr Lister Apr 20 '16 at 15:08
