Where to stay in Leiden

About Leiden

A quaint city oozing with architectural appeal, Leiden offers waterfront wonders that line a meandering canal, situated halfway between Amsterdam and Rotterdam. This “City of Discoveries” is one of Europe’s most prestigious scientific centres, where its unique antiquities attracts tourists from around the world.

Things to do

With museum hopping at the top of the list of things to do, the difficulty lies in deciding which one to visit first. The Rijksmuseum van Oudheden is a popular choice, boasting collections of Greek, Roman and Egyptian artefacts highlighted by the exquisite Temple of Taffeh. For a more geographically focused experience, head over to the Leiden American Pilgrim Museum where you can learn how the pilgrims lived back in the 1300s.

Leiden’s most notable destination is its university, one of Europe’s oldest and where Einstein himself used to teach. Other prominent landmarks include the Gravensteen, a 13th-century prison where you can learn about historic executions and the Pieterskerk, an impressive architectural masterpiece.

The best place to relax and soak in some greenery is in the Hortus Botanicus Leiden, one of Europe’s oldest botanical gardens, renowned for its vibrant landscape of colourful flora. It also contains some of the Netherland’s oldest descendants of Dutch tulips.

Once you’re tired of sightseeing and hungry, it’s time to seek out one of Leiden’s most prominent waterside cafes, Lot en de Walvis. Reserve a table in advance or head over to David’s Burger for a casual meal at any time.

Getting around

Arriva is the primary bus network that crosses through Leiden. Other public transportation options include a railway that routes out of Leiden Centraal, Leiden Lammenschans and De Vink. Bike rentals are also popular with tourists, which is perhaps the most intimate way of getting acquainted with the city.
