Leaving behind the historic centre of Gouda, we cycle through the beautiful Reeuwijk Lake District. We continue to Oudewater, which literally means Old Water. We will explore Oudewater accompanied by a city guide and enjoy a two-course lunch.

First, we will catch our breath after the bike ride and enjoy a bowl of soup at Eetcafé Lumière. The guide will pick us up and tell us about the colourful history of Oudewater, such as the infamous Heksenwaag where suspected witches were weighed. In the Middle Ages thousands of people in Europe were put to death on charges of witchcraft. We take a break with a delicious sandwi(t)ch at Eethuisje 't Backertje, and then complete the historical walk.

We return to Gouda via a countryside bike route, stopping at the village of Haastrecht. This tour ends at the Market square in the centre of Gouda.

  • Bike rental (regular bike)
