Leiden, Holland - Leiden, Home of Old Rhine 5

Leiden, a picturesque Dutch city of about 114,000, is located on a branch of the Rhine River, some 30 minutes southwest of Amsterdam. Laced with peaceful canals and gabled Dutch houses, Leiden is most famous for its university, which is the oldest and most renowned in the Netherlands. Leiden played an important role in Dutch history and in the development of Dutch painting, so it is no surprise that some of the country’s best museums and galleries are located here. The city has had its share of famous residents: Rembrandt was born here; Jan Steen painted here; and Albert Einstein taught here.

Leiden is a very walkable city and has maintained a small-town atmosphere. Visitors enjoy a variety of ethnic restaurants, cozy cafés, bookshops, an outdoor market held twice a week, shopping in a pedestrian precinct, as well as banks, ATMs and several large supermarkets.

There is much to do and see in Leiden, but remember that all of the Netherlands is just at your doorstep: Amsterdam is only 30 minutes by train, Delft 20 minutes, Utrecht 45 minutes, Brussels and Brugge in Belgium 2.5 to 3 hours.

And in case you wondered…yes, Leiden also has a windmill, which is now a fascinating museum.

"Many of my friends with whom I shared my diary noticed that I really thought it was my best trip to Europe - and the UnTour way is the best way. Lenneke's orientation is so well done that you need only to relax and go in any direction you want each day. I would recommend this UnTour to anyone." - T. Badkins



These apartments are managed by an agency with excellent English-speaking personnel who are available by phone as needed. And our UnTours staff person is always just a phone call away.

Here's what our guests have to say

S and P Savage, 2022


Apartment was great, hosts were terrific and very helpful, property owner actually got to be a friend, and the apartment was well situated for walking to everything we wanted to do in Leiden as well as no more than about 15-20 minutes from Leiden Centraal, the train station. Air flow through this lovely apartment was not the best and one of the hosts did lend us her small fan for the bedroom and that seemed to be barely sufficient. The only other thing I would say is that it would have been a better experience if we fronted on a canal.
