Social & Culture Programmes
Are you looking for a social or cultural programme? Do you want to surprise your participants with a unique experience? There are various options that will inspire your conference participants, and let them experience first-hand why Leiden is the City of Discoveries! Please have a look at some of the possibilities below. If you are interested in knowing more about what Leiden has to offer specifically, please get in touch!
Discover Leiden from the 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.
Go on a discovery through 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.
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).
Cultural activities for groups
Leiden, City of Science, has much to offer for groups. From sailing to walking, museums to cycling. Leiden has it all!
Immerse yourself in culture and science
Leiden is popularly known as a city of culture and science. The scientific character of the city can be best explored through her dozens of museums, some of which have been given multiple awards for their excellent collection. The culture of Leiden is best explored through its museums, its canals and finally its shopping streets.
