“Beautiful city hall located at the square in Gouda”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2012

Very beautiful city hall located at the main square in Gouda. Best day to visit is Friday when there is no market. The city hall is still used for marriages.

“So old and so special”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2012

This Gothic city hall of Gouda is situated on a large square in the middle of the old centre of Gouda. The town hall is still being used for weddings as it is so beautiful.There are often activities on this square. The Cheese Market starts at 10.00 and at ± 12.30 the last cheese is sold and taken away. At the same time as the Cheese Market there is also crafts market, a presentation of traditional crafts and products made in and around Gouda, such as earthenware, pipes, clogs, farm produce, treacle waffles and, of course, cheeses.
The cheese market is held every Thursday morning from mid- June to the end of August.

“An old townhall still being used.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2012

This very old building had old (and some new) furnature and is still being used for weddings and other functions of a townhall.
Many of these type of building are transformed to museums, this one is still used as both.

“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.
