Woerden is not a famous destination of the Netherlands (yet), but it has everyting you would like to see and experience! Woerden is a pitoresque historic fortified town. Discover the rich Roman history, experience Woerden Farmers Town with its cheese warehouses and Farmers markets and enjoy in the beautiful green surroundings.
Every Saturday between April 28th and August 25th the Cheese Market takes place. The city relies on an age-old Cheese Market tradition that still exists today. In 1885 the first batches of cheese were transported from the country side to the city centerto be traded. That trade still determines the prices of farmers cheese today. After the trade, the selling prices and purchase prices - which are binding for farmer and trader - are written on the Kaasbel, which is situated right next to the Stadshotel.
An extra option is to enjoy a high tea in the beautiful 600 year old castle in Woerden. The high tea includes tea and a huge variety of sweet pastries, such as brownies, cupcakes, English scones, chocolates, English sandwiches and quiches. The high tea can be extended with a glass of refreshing prosecco.
