Woerden City Walk

5.0 km

Come discover Woerden! This city walk takes you past all the major sights and historic monuments of this old fortified centre. You'll see the former town hall dating from the 16th and 17th centuries, now home to the civic museum, and the Petruskerk, a church whose history goes all the way back to the 8th century. Naturally it also includes Woerden castle, built in 1415 by Duke John II of Bavaria. Brimming with culture, architecture and Dutch charm, Woerden offers lots to explore.

The walk starts at the Tourist Information Office (VVV) in the cheese warehouse, but you can start from any point on the route. The walk takes around one hour.
