25 Lanes Tour Gouda

Author: Hans van de Water

What once started as a running / walking route for friends, acquaintances and other interested parties is now available as a 56-page bound booklet containing the 25 (mostly hidden) alleys that Gouda still has.

Partly due to the voluntary efforts of many, this booklet is now for sale for only 10 euros at various bookstores / souvenir shops / VVV in Gouda.

With this booklet in hand, you will visit 25 (hidden) alleys in the historic center of Gouda. Discovering these alleys prompted the author in 2017 to do further research into old alleys, their meaning and origin in Gouda.

"Not seeing the well-known buildings, but the old lanes / alleys of Gouda, whose names often refer to professions from the past."

"To wander through the past in the present."

"A must for someone who wants to see something different from the city than the famous buildings and tourist attractions."
