The Alblasserwaard encompasses the municipalities of Alblasserdam, Gorinchem (except a small part in the east) , Hardinxveld-Giessendam, Molenlanden (except a tiny part in the southeast), Papendrecht, and Sliedrecht. A small part of the municipality of Vijfheerenlanden belongs also to the Alblasserwaard.

The well-known windmills of Kinderdijk can be found in the northwest corner.
