“A really Dutch City Hall”
4 of 5 bubbles 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.

“Town Halls don't come like this anymore...”
5 of 5 bubbles 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 bubbles 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.

“The whole square experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013

These should all be lumped together as you walk past the weigh house on you way to the city hall and it is all very impressive when taken together. The city hall is beautiful and worth a visit but just experiencing the square, the cheese market, and the complete picture of Gouda is definitely a very good stop.
