Our Home For Exchange

Description of the home we are offering for exchange

January 2022; We no longer live in Woerden. This year we will not do a home exchange. At the beginning of autumn we will move to our brand new home in Dussen (N-BR). We are again interested in a home exchange in the summer of 2023. We will share photos and details of our new home as soon as available.

Description of our neighbourhood and surrounding area

Our house is located in a nice quiet 1930's neighborhood near the city center.
Woerden has everything one could wish for; an old historical center, theater, cinema, restaurants and nice little shops.

Woerden is well located in the Netherlands and nice places are easily accessible. This can be done by car but public transportation is well organized and the station for train and bus is nearby. Geographical strategic to Amsterdam, Utrecht, The Hague, Rotterdam , Leiden and Schiphol Airport. But also the North Sea beach , the forests of the Utrecht Ridge and recreational lakes of Nieuwkoop , Loosdrecht and Reeuwijk are located nearby . Because of the special location Woerden offers you an exciting environment.

The river "Old Rhine " runs through the heart of the city and the many farms in the area for centuries have caused a lot of trade and activity. The atmospheric old town has an urban appeal with a wide variety of shops and restaurants, market and an arts center.

Our home exchange - places to go and things to do while staying in our home

Woerden is situated in the Green Heart of the Netherlands. A wonderful area for hiking and cycling. For example to Oudewater, the Meije, Bodegraven or Linschoten. Walk along the old Rhine from Woerden to Bodegraven (or vice versa). This is really beautiful in any season (you can return to Woerden by taking the train). Also a hike to Kamerik, a nice walk through the meadows.

Woerden markets: Wednesday morning cheese market. At 10.00 a.m. Cheese farmers are selling their goods to the wholesalers and shop owners nearby the Bell. Typical Dutch custom, great to see. One can buy Cheese as well.

Every Saturday there is a local market where you can buy local products such as cheese, bread and dairy.

I am proud to mention that Woerden also has a carillon and that it can be heard in the background when you are sitting in the garden. The chime that is played at fixed times by the carilloneur on every hour, half hour or quarter (depending on the season) breaks the silence with a lovely melody, most people do not want to miss.

Our Preferences

Our home exchange - here are our Preferences and House Rules

Due to Covid 19 no traveling in the summer of 2020. Exchanging in autumn is possible. Surprise us with a proposal.

We are just with the two of us, we do not smoke and do not have any pets (Lars is allergic to pets). Our house is very clean and tidy. Friends sometimes call us 'fussy', but we just like it clean. We would like to exchange with a similar couple. So, if you are just like us, we are open for a swop.
