15. Museum Gouda en Museumtuin

During Gouda by Candlelight, The Museum Garden transforms into a cosy winter village. Meet each other in a wintery, cozy atmosphere athe outdoor bar for Gluhwein, hot chocolate and hot sandwiches and/or in the tent for different performances! The Museum Garden is a wonderful location to go to during Gouda by Candlelight and swoon away in Christmas atmosphere. Enjoy our centuries-old walled garden; one of the most beautiful (and hidden) winter gardens in Gouda. With the view of the monumental St. Janskerk.
