The IJssel becomes wide Again the last leg before the Hollandse IJssel. You might expect a lot of hard dikes, but it is not so bad. In many cases you can simply walk on grass outside the dikes. However, there is traffic above but beautiful views over the water. You start the tour in Gouda. It is a town where the center is beautifully preserved with the beautiful Gothic town hall and the cheese house. Gouda was a real trading place because it was situated at the intersection of the IJssel and the Gouwe (that is where the name Gouda comes from). In the past you had many brewers, cheese traders (so many cows) and candles. To leave Gouda you have to cross the Julianasluizen. The IJssel is clamped between high dikes from here, because you have passed the fan locks. The water here is subject to ebb and flow (see flood defense below). There are also no water buffers here in the form of floodplains. You then walk to Moordrecht on paths outside the dykes. It is a real dike village with beautiful buildings on the dike. Within the dykes, many Moluccans lived here in vast camps after the war. At the end of the village you will see a huge colossus of a water tower, which is very reminiscent of the inkwell of the Dutch Railways in Utrecht. In Moordrecht you can take a mini-ferry to Gouderak, a "young" village from the Middle Ages. You then continue along the IJssel to Nieuwerkerk, which is slightly younger than Oudekerk on the IJssel, but still from the Middle Ages. In Nieuwerkerk you will find the lowest point of the Netherlands (-6.76m NAP) on the Derde Tochtweg. Considerable pumping stations are therefore needed to keep the polders empty. In Nieuwerkerk you also reach the 's-Gravenweg, which was part of the road from Gouda to Kralingen. This road stands for the expression: "As old as the road to Kralingen". After the construction of the Schielandse Hoge Zeedijk in the 12th century (!), The 's-Gravenweg came to lie inside the dikes. The 's-Gravenweg is the gateway to Hitland, an excavated peat area, which is beautifully situated against the Randstad. From Hitland you head into the Randstad via Capelle aan den IJssel. It is a village that has grown completely out of its seams, the remains of which you will find on the dike. It has actually merged with Rotterdam: there is even a Metro line running to Capelle. Capelle is also the last place on the IJssel, which flows here into the Nieuwe Maas in view of the Van Brienenoord bridge. On the mouth is the oldest delta work in the Netherlands (1958): De Stormvloedkering. During the flood disaster in 1953, a dike hole was closed at Nieuwerkerk with the ship "De Twee Gebroeders", but the water reached dangerously high here. That is why the first flood barrier has arrived. With a little storm and high tide, the barrier will close, providing excellent protection against the low-lying Dutch hinterland. At that time, an (Algera) bridge was also constructed to unlock the Krimpener.
