In 1365 bought the town of Gouda the marktveld of Mr Van der Goudé for a town hall building. Yet it would take until 1448 before construction began. The building was erected from Belgian limestone. The foundation was not drived, but a few rafts of heavy oak beams were used. Until 1603, the townhall was surrounded by water and was to reach by a drawbridge. In that year (1603), the current plateau in Renaissance style was by the city sculptor Gregory Cool manufactured.

Thank you for making the effort to take a look at my photos. Your visit is very much appreciated!
Photography is my passion since my youth and I never go out without my camera.
I found red-bubble in Spring 2009 and I’m glad I did. It’s a very inspiring and fascinating place to be, in more ways than one.
A heartfelt thanks to you all for the many kind words and wonderful compliments you gave me. I look forward viewing your world and sharing mine.
Have a wonderful day! Take care!

    Mijn fav. stadhuis! Mooie foto Hans!

  • Elk jaar weer in december wordt het stadhuis in de meest fraaie kleuren gezet door een Frans kunstenaar. Echt sprookjesachtig. Moet je komen bekijken! De moeite waard.

    Mijn ouders trouwden daar, in 1941. Was toen wel een andere tijd!
    I have mixed feelings about this. Comes with having migrated.
    We like memories of where we came from to remain untouched.
    But I am still impressed with the way the Gouda market square is such a focal point for the citizens and visitors. I am thinking of the beach events and the ice rink I have seen there, via the internet, in recent years, in addition to the regular market days, cheese promotions, etc..

  • Ha Joop,
    Ik heb je sites bekeken en begrepen dat je hier in Gouda geboren bent. 4 jaar geleden ben ik hier ook getrouwd en mijn schoonouders tig jaar geleden ook. Goude is nog steeds een leuke stad, maar er is inderdaad erg veel veranderd!
    Fijne dag!

    Whow….ik dacht even aan zo’n sprookjeskasteel uit Dineyland…..:)
    Prachtplaat Hans!
    Is dit een foto van dit jaar?

  • Ha Adri! Dank!
    Nee, deze is van vorig jaar. Dit jaar moet nog komen. Ben benieuwd hoe het er nu weer uit gaat zien. De kunstenaar (een Fransman) heeft elk jaar weer andere fantastische variaties. Prachtig!
    Groeten en fijne dag,
