Ever heard of Gouda Cheese? Well, it’s no coincidence that this cheese is named after the city, Gouda, located on the western side of the Netherlands. However, Gouda is not just a place of dairy products, although this is a huge part of its history. The city is also known for its deep, rich history. It started its life in the 11th century and has evolved over the years to become the amazing destination it is today. Remnants of the middle ages still stand bold and strong in the city’s landscape. These include the 15th-century-built City Hall and the former cheese weighing station which is currently a Cheese Museum, Goudse Waag. A visit here is like a trip back in time. Visit these historical monuments and museums and be amazed at how far back this city started and the milestones it went through to become what it is today. Need a place to stay?
