    Historical Harbour museum ~ Gouda

    by songlines Written Jun 28, 2013

    It is great to see all these older and quite beautiful boats lying in the old harbour of Gouda. We cruised through it and then had to wait to get through the lock and into the Hollansche Ijssel, which gave me plenty of opportunity to take photos of the boats.

    This is the oldest part of Gouda's harbour and many historical ships and boats are moored here, including the so called Bruine Vloot. It is a great pleasure to see these.

    GOUDA ~ CITY OF CHEESE!

    by songlines Written Jun 28, 2013

    Gouda is a lovely town to visit, with it's most beautiful town hall, it's 'waag', a place where all the weighing of the cheeses was done, it's 'grachten' which are the beautiful and picturesque waterways woven throughout the old town. On a sunny day it is nice to visit the Market place, the building are stunning and there are great photo opportunities, or perhaps you could sit in one of the many cafes to watch the world go by, or on one of the many benches just to soak up the ambience of the lively and colourful people of Holland. In Holland people like to decorate their windows inside with plants and other things that show some of what they like or are interested in, I've seen window displays quite original with a collection of old model cars, trains or such-like. It makes me think that the Dutch are on the whole quite demonstrative and extrovert. Wherever we came we were always greeted with a friendly smile, and a helpful gesture. The over all impression I got in Holland was of a people that are industrious but also happy and contented with their lives, not worrying too much of what others thought of what was done. Apart from the old town centre, there is the Historical Harbour museum, this is lovely to cruise through and I would recommend this if you are with a boat, or if you take one of the city cruises which are laid on for people to avail of.

    Windmill visit in Nootdorp

    by lubama05 Updated Apr 7, 2008

    Between Delft and The Hague there is a little village called Nootdorp. You can visit the windmill here. One of the (voluntary) millers gives a great tour, in Dutch of course, but also in English or Italian if you prefer, and he will pull it off in French or German too (and he happens to be my much loved father in law as well). Please sign the log during your visit. Upon several occasions I have been reading the log, and it is very nice to see comments of people from all over the world.

    The mill is situated next to the Dobbeplas, a recreational area with water for swimming or windsurfing, walking around or watching the birds.

    In winter there is an iceskating rink next to the mill, in summer the rink is mostly used by people learning to skate.

    The mill usually is 'in action' on saturdays, from 10:00 till 16:00 hours.
    Individual visits to the mill are almost always welcome when there is a miller on site, groups please notify beforehand.

    The very best restaurant in the entire region is located in this little village. So if you're having important business relations or something special to celebrate, this is the place to go.

    Goedereede

    by ATLC Updated Aug 11, 2005

    Goedereede is a tiny town where, for some reason, many artists live. So there are quite a few galleries. It's very picturesque and a good place to have lunch, then walk around for an hour or so. Visit the tower and enjoy the scenery from the top!

    Leidschendam

    by ATLC Written Aug 11, 2005

    Like Zoetermeer, Leidschendam is mostly modern with a very small older, not too well-maintained center. It has great potential though, once the city council decides to invest. The main feature is the sluice with the two bridges that are worked by hand.

    Delft

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Delft is a very pictoresque town with its main attractions the Delftware factory (Porceleyne Flesch) and the New Church where Dutch royals have been buried for centuries. But that is not all by far. Go see!

    Gouda

    by ATLC Updated Jun 3, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Gouda is maybe one of the best known places to people from abroad because it has become synonymous with Dutch cheese.
    My Gouda page is a little bit special because I visited it with a TV filmcrew from Wales. It really makes you look at a place differently!

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Heijplaat, although a village in the old days, is now completely part of the harbour and industry area of Rotterdam. Although some may dispute its beauty, the industrial area is a very interesting place to drive around, make photo's of the harbour activity.

    See the link to my Heijplaat page below.

    Kinderdijk

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Kinderdijk is a World Heritage site because it shows a unique series of 19 working windmills that keep the land dry. My Kinderdijk page relates the history of the Polder Dyke Boards (or Water boards), the administrative bodies that manage water and land in The Netherlands.

    Leiden

    Leiden is close to my heart, as I lived there twice and my daughter was born there. I still need to build a proper Leiden page but some information can already be found on my Leiden page.
    Leiden, among other features, is the oldest university city of The Netherlands.
    The Pilgrim Fathers also had something to do with Leiden...

    Noordwijk aan Zee

    by ATLC Updated Jun 3, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Although my Noordwijk page has no really worthwhile tourist info yet, it is a place that I will always remember as my brother lived for 25 years in the WIllem van den Bergstichting. It is a village in itself for mentally handicapped.

    Noordwijk aan Zee is a real beach resort and I've spent many happy weeks there as a child.

    Seaside resort just 5 kms from my hometown Brielle. Lively rural village and some very beautiful houses. Around Oostvoorne some great natural reserves (dune landscape) with extraordinary flora and fauna. Easy cycling and hiking.
