About five kilometers from De Groene Hartelijkheid lies the picturesque town of Oudewater. The historical facades along the canals in the town centre are well worth a visit. The world-famous Heksenwaag explains the history of the witch prosecution in Europe. Touwmuseum De Baanschuur gives an insight in the rope industry, to which Oudewater owed her prosperity in the old days. Every Wednesday from 11am thru 4pm there is a market.
