Gouda was not only famous for its cheese but in the 16th and 17th century also for its clay pipes called "Gouwenaars" (sorry only in dutch). You still find uncountable pipe heads with broken stems in the ground on building sites and in the waterways of our country because they broke very easily and were cheap to replace. They are still making them today. One for Monday Murals here.
On a glassdoor from an empty shop under reconstruction the glass was glued with paper to prevent it from breaking. After removing some pieces stayed and one funny guy made a real picasso with a felt pen.
Part of the entrance of the RVB bank build between 1937-1939 by architect D. Roosenberg. One of the two statues flanking the entrance and made by Hildo Krop and Han Wezelaar (height 3.6 m) are the protectors of social law. ( Not part of the route but just there.)
A statue by Ruud Kuijer. I see a man patting a dog on his head here but if that is true. Only the artist knows.
Together for a better world by Cristóbal Gabarrón. The whole route consist of 91 pieces and is 5 KM long.

An old saying from the Provo movement from around the sixties:
2 lane way, 4 lane way, 8 lane way, Holland away.
I count 14 and lucky enough we still exist but it takes indeed a lot of space.
