Culemborg is a small town which will merit a visit of half a day to a day, depending on which monuments you visit.
If you just walk around, admire, and do a little shopping, then half a day should be enough.
Fondest memory: Culemborg is a walled fortified town. Just inside the walls you'll find parking spaces. You can also walk around the. This part is just behind the windmill.
The tourist information office is opposite this windmill.
However, you may find it to be closed. In that case you can get a free city walk brochure at the large bookstore on the market square.
Fondest memory: Molen De Hoop (The Hope) is a stone windmill built in 1853. It is owned by the city of Culemborg and was restored in 1993. The windmill works every Saturday.
For a very long time, Culemborg was an independent state, comparable with San Marino or the Vatican. It had its own law, coins etc.
Fondest memory: Once, there was a powerful castle in Culemburg, but almost all of it has gone. But you can still take a look at the site.
Favorite thing: On tuesdays, there is a very nice and large market in the old town. If you like that, Tuesday is the best day to come. But you miss some of the monumental pictures because of all the people and stands.
