Gouda is situated in the Green Heart of Holland and is the perfect starting point to explore this beautiful region. Although E-Chopper Gouda is located in the centre of Gouda, on an E-Chopper it is less than a 5-minute ride into the surrounding polders. No matter whether you want to explore the Krimpenerwaard, Zuidplaspolder or the lakes of Nieuwkoop or Reeuwijk.

Unique routes

E-Chopper Gouda offers very diverse routes and in the coming year even more routes will be added to the selection. This year, in close collaboration with the Library of Gouda and Streekarchief Midden-Holland, new routes will be created that show you the rich culture and history of the Green Heart of Holland.

Craftsmanship Route (42 km)

The Craftsmanship Route is a beautiful tour that takes you to see the traditional crafts of Schoonhoven, Gouda and the Krimpenerwaard. It is a tour full of nostalgia. However, through the story of the crafts there is much more to discover. For example, the story of the crafts also offers an amazing introduction to the landscape of the Krimpenerwaard and the towns of Gouda and Schoonhoven.

Cow Cheese Itinerary (57 km)

Enjoy the grazing cows and meadow birds in wide open grasslands with flower-rich banks and ditches and a monumental farm in the distance. In several locations along the route nature lovers and birdwatchers can make a detour to go and see the meadow nature with its many birds. The route takes you through villages such as Stolwijk and Ouderkerk aan den IJssel, and the historic town of Gouda. Experience the hospitality of local entrepreneurs along the way: stop by at a farm to buy some cheese, honey, eggs and other produce, or sample the regional dishes in one of the cosy restaurants.

Golden Age Triangle (43 km)

This route right through the Green Heart of Holland connects the three beautiful towns from the Golden Age: Oudewater, Schoonhoven and Gouda. The varied 43-kilometre route takes you past ancient farms and along the picturesque River Vlist. Terraces, a visit to a museum and the bustling shopping streets await you in the three charming historic town centres.
