This activity will end right where it started.
Choose a morning or afternoon departure when booking, then meet a guide at your downtown Gouda hotel or the town’s train station. Learn the basics of Gouda history as you trace a route into the heart of downtown, setting a pace that’s comfortable for your group, with plenty of time to see the places that interest you most.

Your guide will share stories about the town and local culture while introducing you to a series of landmarks, such as the city square, the 15th-century city wall, and the 17th century weighing house where Gouda cheese was weighed in for centuries. If you’re visiting the town between April and August, stop by Gouda’s cheese market to sample Dutch cheeses.

Another highlight of Gouda is the Church of Saint John, a UNESCO World Heritage Site where a set of bright, stained-glass windows overlook the longest church in the Netherlands. The guide will also show you to a hidden sculpture garden hidden in the Gouda Museum, then walk you to a local café where your tour concludes—perfect timing for sitting down to a cup of coffee with a sweet stroopwafel pastry (own expense).
