Welcome in Leiden !


For a great day out, go on a voyage of discovery through Leiden. Leiden is certainly worth visiting. The other name people use for Leiden is Key City, because of the Leiden coat of arms, two red crossed keys, that are omnipresent in the city, like a leitmotif. The rich history, museums, the many restaurants and cafés, various cultural events and good choice of shops make Leiden an attractive and lively city. Leiden is also renowned as a student city.

Want something different? Then take the boat to visit Leiden from the water. In some places you can get on a unique cruise along special places in the history of Leiden. Of course you can also rent a boat or pedalo to admire the jewels of the city from the water.
