Also known as ‘Borft’, Bodegraven is the biggest and most pleasant cheese village in the Netherlands! It offers plenty of unique (village) events throughout the year that guarantee a fun time for young and old. The Autumn Market has a warm and welcoming tradition. Since 1952, Bodegraven has celebrated this traditional funfair, when the community throws a big annual party and elects their new Cheese Queen. It’s also a lot of fun to go shopping at all the shops here. There are several other shopping centres outside the town centre, where you can do your daily shopping. Do you enjoy a drink on the terrace or a good meal in a fine restaurant? If so, Bodegraven is definitely the place for you. Bodegraven is easily accessible thanks to its location on the A12 and on the railway line between Utrecht and Leiden. Bodegraven is also easy to reach by boat. Moor your boat on the Rijnkadehaven and step right into this bustling village!
