In the 16th and 17th century Gouda was one of the most important cities in Holland. Even at present, Gouda, with the historic Town Centre, with cosy streets and alleys, the Market Place with the monumental Town Hall is very worthwhile visiting.
Of course the best way to experience Gouda is a city walk conducted by the Gouda Guild of Guides, during which you will learn not only about Gouda’s historical facts and buildings, but you will hear dozens of nice and interesting stories about the town. A guided walk through town will make you see and experience more of Gouda.
