In the province South-Holland, bordering the province Utrecht, you can find the village Schoonhoven. Schoonhoven is located at the river Lek, half-way the big cities Utrecht and Rotterdam.

Schoonhoven is famous for its silver craftsmanship and there are many silver and gold shops and galleries, and even a Gold, Silver and Clocks Museum.

A visit to Schoonhoven can be combined with a beautiful hike through Dutch pasture and along a picturesque river, including mills and churches. The hike, marked with signs, is called Cabauwse Jacobs route. See the link below for more information.
