Woold is a municipality in the municipality of Winterswijk, in the Dutch province of Gelderland. The Woold counts about 900 inhabitants, spread over over 24 km². The mailing address is written as Winterswijk-Woold. Only late in the 20th century were the roads and streets of the Woold and the other Winterswijkse neighborhoods. To that end, Woold had the letter K with a house number.

The Woold lies southeast of Winterswijk, in a wooded area on the border with Germany. Through the neighborhood, the road leads directly from Winterswijk to the city of Bocholt in Germany. In the Woold there has been no real exchange settlement, which means that the farmers still have much smaller plots. This also caused residues of landmen and the Ruitenburgerschans, a ringwheel. In addition to forest and agriculture, the Woold also knows a cattle region: the Woolen Crop.

The neighborhood has a strong association life, and there are also important facilities such as elementary school, two café-restaurants and a campsite. There is also the Berenschot, a water mill from 1749.

In total, Woold countes fourteen registrations in the national register of monuments. These include mainly farms, but also two shoots belong to the disappeared Plekenpol near the Den Helder water mill (also a national monument). Another monumental mill in Woold is Berenschot from 1652.
