Solve surprising clues. This is not how you saw the city before!

This treasure hunt, developed by Speurroutes NL, lets you look at your surroundings with different eyes, visit places you would otherwise pass by and experience again how special everyday things really are. The route takes you through narrow alleys, beautiful parks and along historic courtyards criss-crossing the city centre. You end on the Market Square with the beautiful city hall and the indestructible Sint Janskerk. Along the way, there are plenty of opportunities to take a break at one of the many inviting terraces!
But beware: while you enjoy the surroundings at your leisure, clues must be solved that will lead to the answer to the one pressing question: where is the Treasure of Gouda? Discover beautiful Gouda with this Speurroute. Those who sleuth see more!
