St. Jans Cathedral, Gouda
Whoever says Gouda not only thinks immediately of cheese, pipes, treacle waffles and earthenware, but also a picturesque town hall and romantic canals. Gouda is a real old Dutch town with a virtually intact town centre.
A visit at the St. Jans Cathedral with its famous stained glass windows and the historic market (see photo below).
The Green Heart is characterized by its rural character which contrasts the urban areas around it. Agriculture, nature and recreation are the primary activities in the Green Heart.
The river Vlist meanders through this beautiful environment. The picturesque nature surrounding the river is typical for peat-soil. This is a wonderful drive along a small one lane dike road.
The Netherlands is well-known for its long stretched dikes along water ways. On this tour we'll be driving over these narrow high barriers, with beautiful panoramic views on both sides of the vehicle.
