Papendrecht is a typical Dutch town next to a dike, as the original inhabitants of this area settled alongside the river Merwede. Papendrecht is a village with many green spaces and over the years it has grown into a prosperous town offering many economical, cultural and sportive possibilities.

This shopping centre also houses various supermarkets and hospitality businesses. On Friday evenings the shops have long opening hours. Next to the river Merwede Grand Café Willaerts can be found. In summer, its terrace is a wonderful place to enjoy a beautiful view on the river (Merwede).
