Historical highlights in Woerden

A traditional Farmers Market Town!

Traditionally, Woerden is an authentic Farmers Market Town. It is hard to imagine Woerden without farmers, citizens, country people, cheese, Cow Market and the many regional products. Admire the negotiating by "handjeklap" on the Cheese Market, where the prices are still written on the historic "Kaasbel" and discover more about the history of cheese during a Cheese City walk with a Gilde guide.
