Gouda Cheese market

Gouda: the real Holland Classic

Gouda is among the most characteristic old Dutch cities, world famous for its cheese and cheesemarkets, treacle waffles, pipes and earthenware. It is centrally located between the cities of The Hague, Utrecht, Rotterdam and Leiden. Gouda is easy to combine with a visit to the windmills of Kinderdijk and the flowers of The Keukenhof.

Gouda Highlights

Gouda has many hidden gems that are waiting to be discovered. Visit the famous cheese market, admire the picturesque town hall on the Market square, the famous stained-glass windows of the Sint-Janskerk (St. John’s Church). Don’t forget to visit the Goudse Waag with the Cheese and Crafts Museum and Museum Gouda. Have a cheese tasting or bake your own syrupwaffle in a workshop. Walk through the friendly streets with traditional shops and along the canals with their sidewalk cafes and restaurants. You can easily imagine yourself in the Middle Ages, the period in which the famous humanist Erasmus lived and worked in Gouda. A visit to Gouda is one of those unique experiences that your guests will never forget!
