  • Linda Church, with many famous stained-glass Windows, dark like most churches in Europe, but is a source of peace in the middle of the city. Beautiful architecture.

  • I live in Gouda but each time I pass this church I am reminded of it's beauty. That never grows old. Inside the church is simply decorated. It are the glass in lead windows that draw attention. They are mostly medieval and a true work in art. Try to come in the christmas season when the church is lighted from the inside for a few weeks which makes the windows stand out more.
  • Nice paintings and stained glass windows. Worth visiting for the price (5€, 3 for students)
  • The Sint-Janskerk of Gouda is constructed in 15th-16th Century, it was in the 1570s closed by Willem of Oranje because the Spanish plunders in there, in May 1940 during the German Invasion of The Netherlands and Belgium take the city of Gouda shelter for 1200 soldiers from Rotterdam.
  • Impressive and majestic from the outside. Didn't visit the inside though.
  • Impressive architecture and examples of stained glass.
