In the beginning of this thread I mentioned that a new city hall was about to be built in the area just north of the railway station. It has been completed last month. Here are some pictures.

The strange facade is based on the Stroopwafel, a typical Dutch waffle that was invented in Gouda.

If they were going to make a city hall that ressembled a local food, why didn't they build it to look like gouda cheese?

I think that Stroopwafels and Gouda cheese are equally famous in Holland.

There is an old graveyard just outside the city center, that has not been used for decades. The graves are still there though, while nature is reclaiming the site.

A beautiful part of the world. Like most of the Netherlands some great looking canals and bridges too.

Holland is cool. Brings back fond memories of other similar towns I visited. Gouda seems to have that Dutch quality of coziness. There's a word for it that friends explained to me. I'll try phonetically - heselick?

Oh my goodness. I initially thought that Gouda is just a name of a cheese, but a city? Wow.

I'll tell you: I've read through your first page and the latest image collection, and I will be honest with you: your city looks truly amazing. I can't believe that the Dutch waffle-designed building you've mentioned is actually your City Hall, and I find the design very unique and outstanding indeed. Now that's what I call out-of-the-box thinking, and it looks really splendid. Your city center looks wonderful and lively too, with your gorgeous church (sometimes, I can't tell if it's Medieval or Baroque for some reason!), lively sidewalks with outdoor stalls, and wonderfully-preserved homes and buildings all in a walkable area. Of course, on top of the functional windmill, your autumn and winter scenes look brilliant, such that I can picture myself walking around town, noticing the plants and animals that flow with the wind as the seasons pass by...

You're right, Gouda is much more than cheese. It is a breathtaking and beautiful city that I'd like to visit as a side tour when I visit the Netherlands. Well done, my friend! Looking forward to more of your great photos.

Gouda seems like a lovely city with its natural cosiness and nice variety of architecture. Nice showcase.
