Gouda is a city in South Holland, the Netherlands, that is famous for its namesake cheese. Many people only come to Gouda for the cheese market, however there’s so much more to this beautiful Dutch city only an hour from Amsterdam.
In this guide to Gouda’s beautiful historic city center, I’ll be showing you the best things to do in Gouda that aren’t cheesy, including obvious historicarl monuments, some secret places in Gouda that people leave off too many itineraries, and a few independent cafes/restaurants in Gouda that you’ll want to visit. I tried to minimize costs in this one day guide to Gouda, so you can choose whether you want to pay for museums or walk more. (Don’t worry, this Gouda itinerary includes a cheese shop!)
