» Papendrecht Hotels

Papendrecht city is a town in the western Netherlands, in the province of South Holland, along the River Beneden Merwede. Papendrecht is a typical dike town. The city’s perfect location helped the early inhabitants to settle down mainly along the river and benifitted trade and work, such as shipyards, cane cultivation and fishing for food and trade. The city has developed at the end of the nineteen fifties when it evolved into its present form. Due to this development Papendrecht hasn’t got a historical centre.
