The Green Heart is a national landscape. It boasts a wealth of history, many monuments and an open, green and pure peat meadow area with lots of recreational facilities.

Woerden is located in the centre of the Green Heart and is therefore also known as the gateway to a cultural and recreational journey of discovery. You can find the authentic and original feeling of Holland within the congregation.  From the grazing cows to cheese making, from country life to a lively city centre hosting shops and terraces.

Residents and visitors are visiting the countryside in the Green Heart more frequently. It’s a trend from rural towns, which local businesses use to their advantage by creating bicycle routes, tour packages and various other recreational facilities.
