Gouda Things to Do: 100 reviews and 164 photos
These 16 centuary stained glass windows are magnificant. The windows done in the period 1555 - 1571 portray religious themes when Holland was still Catholic and post reformation the windows in the period 1572 - 1603 are more secular.
window 6 depicts the story of Jonah and the whale, whilst window 13 sees Jesus as a 12 year old boy.
There is a good guide around the church advising you of what you will see in the windows. There is also a telescope pointed on several windows if memory serves me correctly.
It costs Euro 2 for adults, Euro 1.75 students & Euro 1 for children
Open daily 9am - 5pm not on sundays. There are also organ recitals which you can attend
Address: Achter de Kerk 16
