Gouda (pronounced “how-da”), Netherlands is a small, canal town in South Holland, a little less than an hour’s train ride from Amsterdam. Gouda is most famous for its namesake cheese and its famous Thursday market celebrating said cheese – the Kaasstad! In addition, Gouda has a well-preserved 15th century town hall (the Stadhuys), beautiful canals running throughout the city and a compact center. I visited Gouda as a day trip from Amsterdam and highly recommend it! Here are some pictures of the charming town:
