“A really Dutch City Hall”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

We drove from Kinderdijk along the Lek river and took the ferry for only 2. 45 euro across the river for a short drive to Gouda. A lovely Dutch town with nice shops, St John s Church and the old City Hall . You can visit the Gouda cheese shop which sells the best local cheeses. Walk through the old town with delightful houses on the canals.

“Stadhuis”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

The Stadhuis is unmissable, located right in the middle of the Markt in Gouda. Walk around the entire exterior to appreciate the detailed architecture of this lovely old building and the great photo opportunities provided. Unfortunately there was a wedding in progress when I visited and I couldn't go inside to view the interior.

“Town Halls don't come like this anymore...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

Breathtaking view on any given day, this piece of architecture seems more like sculpted stone lace. Make sure you have a beer or the amazing french fries across the facade to fully understand what makes the Netherlands such a unique place...

“An impressive building”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

An impressive yet quaint building. The red shutters and turrets makes the building look like it has been plucked straight from a fairy tale. Every half-hour a mechanical display is performed on the side of the building.
