There's a small museum at the foot of the tower. It shows various objects about life on the island Goeree.
The 1.50 euro entrance fee gives you the possibility to browse around and climb the tower. The entrance is at the bottom of the tower.
At this moment (june 2005) there is a quilt exposition.
Climbing the tower of Goedereede will cost you 1.50 euro entrance fee.
I didn't climb it this time round because in my hometown Brielle we have the exact same tower (but taller) and I'd just climbed that one the day before. Besides, it was raining so I didn't expect a very good view.
The tower was originally used as a lighthouse. In the middle ages people would light a big fire on top of it, to direct the ships safely along the coast into the harbours.
The most famous restaurant in Goedereede is De Gouden Leeuw (Gold Lion). Look again on the opening photo on this page intro and you'll see how grand it is located.
Favorite Dish: Excellent fish soup with Stellendam shrimps and warm French bread and butter. Good meal salad with grilled goat's cheese. Drinks and coffee for 2 persons amounts to 33 euro. Excellent and attentive service too.
Quaint little antique shop specialised in cooking utensils and kitchen ware. If they're closed, call them. They might open the shop for you.
What to buy: Open afternoons from July 12th.
Strolling around the little cobbled streets of Goedereede, you'll notice a lot of small art galleries. I can't name them specifically but let them take you by surprise!
A little bell tinkles when you open the door to the bakery to buy fresh bread and 'Torenkoek' (tower cake, referring to the tower of Goedereede).
