    Leiden by Water

    The canals that run through Leiden give the city its unique character. Boating on these waters provides your delegates with a one-of-a-kind view of the city. Your delegates can go on a canal cruise or rent their own boat to experience the luxurous feeling of sailing through Leiden for themselves. The unique, historical look-and-feel of Leiden can be experienced best by boat.

    Historical Leiden

    Walking through Leiden is like walking through a living museum. With more than 3,000 officially recognised monuments, 35 almshouse courtyards, 28 kilometers of canals and 88 bridges connecting the streets, the lay-out of the city has not changed much over the past centuries. Rembrandt would still be able to navigate the current city. Your delegates can discover the most beautiful and noteworthy places in Leiden through one of our themed walking routes. These guided routes are available in an app and as booklets at the Tourist Information Office (VVV).

    Leiden is ideally situated. It's just a stone's throw from major cities like The Hague and Amsterdam, and nearby you can also find the North Sea coast, the Keukenhof Gardens and the Green Heart of Holland. Schiphol Airport is less than twenty minutes away, and Rotterdam - The Hague Airport just twenty-five minutes.

    If your delegates are arriving by public transport, the city centre is only a few steps from Leiden Central Station. Your delegates can take a bus or taxi to the coast, and many other places in the region. And if your delegates prefer to come by car, it is easy to park in one of the large underground garages in the city centre.​
