The new town hall cost more than half the town’s annual budget. The town hired Jan Kelderman III, a member of a famous Mechelen-based family of architects.

What people are saying about South Holland

Great communication from the Bike & bite team to organise the tour as we initally did not have enough people for the tour. Even in the rain our tour guide Rob was enthusiastic. He was happy to share his stories and experiences of Rotterdam with us. The route was easy to ride, coffee, beer and food stops were all fantastic. Would definitely recommend this tour

The pancake boat is definitely recommended, neatly received on the boat by the staff. You get a table number where you can sit and eat unlimited pancakes when the boat leaves. Pancakes are made on the conveyor belt, no long queue. And for the kids a fun ball pit with a slide below deck where they can enjoy themselves

Very nice attention and amazing food! I’d recommend giving a wider variety of sides to choose for the fondue and that way people can actually decide what they want. Overall a very nice experience if paired with a good wine and some friends!

We had a very nice trip. Everything super organized. There were enough pancakes and they were delicious. The view of the city was beautiful

A great experience where you can learn lots about Gouda’s history.
