The Town of Nederland is a Statutory Town located in the mountains of Boulder County, Colorado, United States. According to 2006 Census Bureau estimates, the population of the city is 1,337.[5]

Nederland started as a trading post between Ute Indians and European Settlers during the 1850s. The first economic boom to the town came when silver ore near the rich mines of Caribou were discovered in 1859. Gold and Tellurium was soon discovered in 1879 then tungsten was discovered and became a major resource for hardening steel production during World War I.

Today it is better known as a gateway to outdoor recreation in the nearby Indian Peaks Wilderness, Rocky Mountain National Park, Roosevelt National Forest and the recently established James Peak Wilderness. Nederland is located 17 miles southwest of Boulder, CO and 50 miles northwest of Denver.

Nederland hosts two major music events every year: NedFest (aka The Nederland Music & Arts Festival) and Frozen Dead Guy Days next to Barker Meadow Reservoir.
