Quick details

The Dutch Golden Century in just one day!

As you know, in the 17th century the Netherlands were a world power and there is no better way to see it with your own eyes than by joining us on this day trip. In the windmill park of Kinderdijk we will learn how the Dutch managed to get the windmills to help them drain the land, in addition to exploiting them for their most common use: grinding. But, apart from that, after manufacturing the raw materials, they also had to be marketed. For this reason, we will close the circle by getting to know one of the cities with the most historical and commercial importance in the development of the country: Gouda.

01.

Kinderdijk

Our first stop will be Kinderdijk, classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, a park that has become the best reflection of the economic prosperity experienced by the Dutch in the 17th century. To understand how these giants affect the country’s economy, we will enter one of the mills, where our expert guide will tell us all the details about its operation and the role it played in the country’s development. Furthermore, after the visit we will be able to enjoy free time to walk, take photos of the landscape, visit other mills, visit the Kinderdijk museum or even take a boat trip.

Gouda

Does your mouth water when you read the name Gouda? It certainly happens to us! On this day trip we will also visit the city that gives its name to the most consumed cheese in the world. But don’t think that the cheese was the only thing that made this city prosper: in the Golden Age Gouda was a very important commercial enclave in the Netherlands. Intrigued? Well, we’ll tell you all about it in its Market Square!

We will visit buildings so emblematic such as the church of St. John’s, built in the 15th century and known for its beautiful stained glass windows; the Town Hall, located in the Market Square; and the old Weighing House. And don’t worry, because, of course, we won’t leave this city without trying its delicious local produce. Therefore, after a visit to the cheese market, we can taste different kinds of chesse and even take some back home. Finally, here too there will be free time to enjoy the city on our own before heading back.
