There is much to see and do in Gouda. The city is, of course, particularly famous for its cheese.
The Gouda Cheese Market has existed since 1198. Before cheese and other goods were sold on the market, they first had to be weighed. This happened in the Waag, and today the Waag is a museum where we can learn all about the history of the Gouda Cheese Market.
Apart from the Waag, other historical highlights include the Town Hall and the Sint-Janskerk, hidden treasures in the Gouda Museum, more facts about cheese in the Gouda Cheese Experience and sweets in the syrup waffle factory. These are places not to be missed when visiting Gouda.
