The first mention of Gouda cheese dates from 1184 making it one of the oldest recorded cheeses still made in the world today. The cheese is named after the Dutch city of Gouda, not because it is produced in or near the city, but because it has historically been traded here. In the Middle Ages all the cheeses would be taken to the market square in Gouda to be sold. Enjoy seeing this ancient cheese tradition taking place before you have free time to explore some of the other attractions.
