Woerden is the capital of the ‘green heart’ of Holland. A beating heart, where city and countryside meet, where cows graze and cheese is made. A place where a city that is both historic and contemporary can be found nestling gently in a unique, expansive countryside.
Conveniently located between the major cities in the western part of the Netherlands, Woerden affords easy access to Amsterdam, Rotterdam, The Hague and Utrecht. Whether by car or train, these cities can be reached within 30–45 minutes.
Woerden has its roots planted firmly in Roman times. The area is home to centuries-old castles and the city of Woerden still has an ancient ring canal surrounding its centre. Woerden also boasts a wide variety of shops, restaurants, sports clubs and cultural facilities, including the Stedehuys museum, a centre for music, dance and theatre and a cinema.
