Living in Voorburg
Voorburg is one of the oldest places in the Netherlands. The oldest mention of the name Voorburg was found on the goods lists of a Utrecht church between 777 and 866. The place ‘Foreburg’ is on it. ‘Fore’ probably comes from the early Germanic word ‘furha’, which means forest.
Despite the fact that much of the rural environment has disappeared, Voorburg has always been able to retain its identity. With the size of a city, but with the quirky character of his village, every Voorburger feels connected. Voorburg has a good living environment with beautiful parks and monumental buildings. Moreover, it has a quiet living environment, where people know each other and have a chat.
