Afferden is a village in the municipality of Druten in the Land of Maas and Waal in the Dutch province of Gelderland. It has about 1640 inhabitants (as of January 1, 2008).
On January 1, 1818, the independent municipality of Afferden was removed and added to Druten.
Over the centuries the village center has been moved. The ancient nucleus is still marked today by the tower of a further demolished church. Elsewhere in the village stands the current parish church of St. Victor and Gezellen from 1890-1891, which was built to a design by architect Carl Weber. The church is largely in neo-Gothic style but has a tower that exhibits influences of Romanesque style. Originally, this tower should be the highest of the region, anyway higher than that of neighboring Druten. However, because the church is built on land that has insufficient ability to carry a heavy tower, the tower is not completed. On the northeast side of the village is the corn mill De Drie Waaien.
