Leaving behind the historic centre of Gouda our bikes take us through the beautiful  Reeuwijk Lake District. We continue to  Oudewater, which literally means Old Water.

We will explore Oudewater accompanied by a city guide and enjoy a two-course lunch. First, we will catch our breath from the bike ride and enjoy a bowl of soup at Eetcafé Lumière. The guide will pick us up and tell us about the colourful history of Oudewater, such as the infamous Heksenwaag, where suspected witches were weighed. In Europe, thousands of people in the Middle Ages were put to death on charges of witchcraft. 

We take a break with a delicious sandwi(t)ch at Eethuisje 't Backertje, and then to complete the historical walk. We return to Gouda cycling on various countryside roads enjoying the view upon the many stretched out canals in this area. This tour ends at the Market square in the centre of Gouda.
