Gouda has a lot more to offer than its famous cheeses. Just like Amsterdam, Gouda has a lot of architecture that reminds us of the Golden Age Era back in the 17th century. This era is best known for the wealth it brought to Amsterdam and the surrounding cities. In Gouda, you will find interesting museums and beautiful buildings all with their own story. The Sint Jans Church is the longest church in The Netherlands and is famous for its stunning stain-in-glass windows. And, of course, the cheese market is free to visit every Thursday morning (10:00 - 13:00) from April to August.
