Stadhuis, Gouda. The Old Townhall on the market square is the oldest Gothic town hall in The Netherlands. Built out of natural materials between 1448 and 1450, it is now a museum. Every hour, on the side of the building, there is a little puppet show, showing the city rights being handed over to Gouda, as happened in the year 1272.
