Great to walk in the gutter again after 40 years to see Gouda from above. Definitely a must to do with panoramic views over the landscapes. A day full of childhood memories of my father who worked on the restoration of the St Jan in the 1970s and my grandparents.

Ik hoop dat iemand het initiatief neemt om op professionele wijze de beelden vast te leggen want mijn foto's waren niet zo mooi als ik had gehoopt.

Trappen waren goed te doen. Je hebt rustmomenten tussendoor voordat je bij de volgende begint. Fantastische ervaring. Jammer dat de lift door de brandweer is afgekeurd waardoor je een groep uitsluit
