A great way of exploring the surroundings of Gouda is by bike. But if you want to enter the city center, it is best to park your bike and go on foot. There is a huge bicycle parking behing the weighing house at the market square. Here you can leave your bike for a couple of hours.
Going by train
Gouda is a very centrally located city. The easiest way to get there is by train. There are trains to Gouda directly to and from the biggest 4 vities in The Netherlands. They are Amsterdam, Rotterdam, The Hague and Utrecht.
For all these directions the train will take you to Gouda in less then an hour. A 2-way ticket from Amsterdam costs 16,10 Euros, from Rotterdam 6,90.
any way you like
we, of course, took our little Smart car there. The ideal place to park is near the railway station as parking in the city is very limited.
There are good bus and trains links to others cities though. You can cycle of course because there is a good bike lane system.

Gouda has a trainstation for frequent arrival and departure of trains.
It's a 10-15 minute walk to the town center from the station.
Example: a train from Amsterdam leaves about 5 times per hour and depending which train you take, the trip is 57 minutes to 83 minutes with zero to two train changes.
A round trip costs € 15.

Bicycles are the only way to travel in this area. remeber that with some of the older models of bikes you may have to pedal backwards rather than reach for a brake on the handle bars.
