“remarkable city hall on triangular `'square`'”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2012

one of the prettiest historic town halls in the Low Countries. The outside says it all. There is not much to see inside.

“Lovely little building”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2012

We went to Gouda for the cheese market, of course, on the square there is also this beautiful little building (of which a copy can be seen in Huis ten Bosch theme park in Japan!). It looks lovely, nicely decorated and I haven't seen anything like this anywhere else.

The day of the cheese market there is a lot to see, apart from cheese there is the traditional crafts and also just a big market... where you can buy a lot of things.

“The Influence of the Flemish Immigrants in Gouda”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2012

Gouda is a beautiful city, perfect for a day trip. The city hall is one of the most impressive buildings on the city square, and there are more beautiful buildings of historical interest. A great little local guide in English just came out called "The Bee's Tour of Gouda". An ebook with maps!

“Unique classic townhall”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2012

This building is unique. Visit the cellar restaurant and the Waag ( buiding  where in the past the famous Gouda  cheese was weighed.
