This city hall is to me the most beautiful of the whole Netherlands...Located right in the middle of a huge square, with a detailed architecture, red panes giving a new fresh impression...

Situated on a pretty square surrounded by shops and restaurants, the City Hall is one of the nicer ones we saw on this trip. We visited on a weekday morning when the Gouda Cheese Auction/Sale was not taking place.

The interior of this interesting, old City Hall has been completely remodeled. Probably great for meetings but not for touring.

A beautiful building. My wife and I were married here over forty years ago and have returned for a visit many times since then. Over the years it has changed from a working office to a true monument displaying its architectural splendour inside and out. Recent additions are the memorials to the many citizens of Gouda who did not survive... More

The town hall of Gouda is in the Centre of the market square and thus the bulleye on the map. A beautiful example of Dutch architecture is the city hall in Gouda. It's certainly picturesque in its setting in Gouda square.The town itself is really pretty, one of the prettiest in The Netherland.

The town hall of Gouda is in the Centre of the market square and thus the bulleye on the map. It expresses democracy as the centre value and has other institutions surrounding it. Next to that the late Gothic architecture is a marvel...

Really interesting looking building. We visited on New Year's Day when the whole square was quite dead, except for the clean up trucks removing the debris from the previous night's fireworks. Thus great opportunity to view the building. Lovely central building within the square.
