Enjoy Woerden from the water

The harbour of Woerden is a wonderful place to moor your boat. Located directly near the city center, the harbour is an extension of the striking canal. This offers plenty of space for passers-by. Do you not own a boat? No problem, you can rent boats from different organizations.


De Grechthaven - this harbour is located at the Greft. The harbour has 113 berths, which all have a side or finger pier. Electricity (CEE connection), as well as water tap points, are present at various locations on the jetties. This harbour is the perfect place to moor for a day or even several days.
