What to expect

Explore Leiden during a private and guided walking tour and admire its main attractions.

See the oldest university of the Netherlands, where King William Alexander graduated just like most other members of the royal family. Have your camera ready to take a picture of the 900 years old Saint Peter Church and find out where Rembrandt was born and where he first started to paint. Admire the 16th century built town hall of Leiden and discover the wall poems spread throughout the city. These poems are written in many different original languages and can be discovered anywhere.

After a great walk through the city, sit back and relax aboard the boat for a canal cruise of Leiden. Sail through Leiden in an hour-long boat trip and experience the very rich culture of the city: marvel at many monuments, museums, and almshouses that are situated on the water and sail past the Botanical gardens, birthplace to the Dutch Tulip. In the wintertime, the canal cruise is replaced by a visit to the Museum Lakenhal, the most important art museum in town.
