The story of Leiden

Situated at a historically important junction, where waterways and roads cross, lies a city that will enchant you: the city of Leiden, famous for its university, museums, waterways, and alms-houses. The spirit of the Golden Age lives on in this medieval city where Rembrandt was born, and which has inspired countless amounts of other influential painters. Ever since, Leiden continued to attract those that were on a quest for knowledge and freedom of expression, from the Pilgrims to Albert Einstein, the historic canals, the beautiful buildings, and alleyways have surrounded those who have made important discoveries for centuries.
