Schoonhoven, the Silver City
Silver and Schoonhoven have been closely related to each other since the 14th century. The city became the centre of Dutch silverforging, silver industry and art.
Whenever you stroll the city centre, you will come across many galeries, workshops and jewelers. And the only vocational school for smiths-to-be is in Schoonhoven.
