"Lively country town" Culemborg by ATLC

Culemborg Travel Guide: 34 reviews and 66 photos

Welcome to Culemborg

Culemborg lies about 28 km south east of Utrecht in a region called Betuwe, known for its fruit trees.
It's an old town which obtained city rights in 1318.

If you want to read more about the Betuwe and Rivierenland (riverland) then see Pavlik_NL's travelogue at



This is the "Markt".
Culemborg is a nice shopping town. Not too big and apart from the usual chain shops there are plenty of little shops to browse.

Town hall

The town hall was built in 1534, assigned by the Lord (Heer) of Culemborg. The architect Rombout Keldermans came from a family of famous builders.

    We have a peach variety here in our orchard whose name is Culemborg (Colembourg ?). Is it possible it came from here ? white flesh, dark red & hairy.

    I often see the townhall of Culemburg when I'm passing Culemborg by train, but I have never visited this town. Thanks to your nice pictures I must get of the train to visit for a good time this little town.

    very good info, I was curious if the restaurant we are eating when we are in Culemborg was on you site, it isn't and I am sorry I can't remember the name, it is at the water, next time I write the name down :-)

    What can I see, but that I am honoured to be mentioned on such beautiful page. Culemborg is inderdaad een pareltje in onze Betuwe. Dank je. Groetjes, Paul
