Gouda by Candlelight
Join me for a fantastic candlelight evening in the beautiful city of Gouda.
We will catch the train Protected content to admire the 15th century City Hall with its carillon on the right side façade, whose mechanical dolls come to life to put on a wonderful show at two minutes past every half and full hour.
At approximately 18:50, the electrical lights will be switched off. Around the Market square the windows will be illuminated by Gouda Candles, all street lights are switched off. This is a prelude to the highlight of the day, the ceremony of enlightning the huge Christmas tree in front of the medieval town hall, in the middle of the market square. The ceremony starts at 7pm and will take approx. Protected content .
Afterwards we will wander through the city centre taking in the festive atmosphere, and visit De Goudse Waag (old weigh house) and the beautiful Sint-Janskerk world-famous for its magnificent stained-glass windows.
