Town Hall Gouda

Christmas Lights at Town Hall Gouda

Gouda has one of the oldest Gothic town halls in the Netherlands.
It stands right in the middle of the lively centre of Gouda’s Market Place and it is world-famous.
The town fire of 1361 destroyed the predecessor of this town hall.
Requirement for the construction of a new town hall was: it had to be located in the middle of the market. That way it would be less prone to fire.
