Church of St. John Gouda

Welcome to St John’s
When the sun shines through the church’s 72 world-famous stained-glass windows, you’ll realize what makes St John’s church in Gouda so special. Nowhere else in the world is there a church where so much original sixteenth-century stained glass has been preserved. They depict Biblical and historical events in comic strip form. The ‘Gouda Windows’ are one of the highlights of European stained-glass painting.
Be amazed at the magnificent colors and the lively interplay of light that lend this church – the longest in the Netherlands – its serenity.

Queens and bears
As it was quite expensive to make stained glass windows, wealthy clergyman and nobles were invited to sponsor a window. In return, images of them were prominently depicted in the window. You can see the images of bishops, Golden Fleece Knights and even kings such as Filip II of Spain and Mary Tudor of England. In the Gouda Windows, a type of pictography was employed that at the time everyone would have understood. Hence, the dog, symbol of faithfulness, is depicted in as many as twenty windows. At the foot of the corrupt King Herod lies a bear - symbol of iniquity and sin.
An audio tour, available in several languages, is included and will take you around the highlights in about an hour.
