Getting married in Woerden?
You should do this in the heart of the city, in the 16th-century town hall. Our old building still breathes the romantic atmosphere of a distant past.

Wedding, drink or reception
In the most beautiful room, the Vroedschapszaal, the atmosphere is determined by the stained glass windows, the 17th-century wooden panelling, the antique furniture and the beautiful paintings. An amazing background for the most beautiful day of your life! Weddings are organized in the Vroedschapzaal, but also drinks, receptions or the cutting of the wedding cake. It is also possible to take wedding photos in the museum.

How does it work?
You must first contact the museum to check whether the Vroedschapszaal is available on the desired date. If so, the museum will make a reservation. Then you must contact the municipality to book your wedding via the Wedding Desk.
