Leiden, Holland - Leiden, Home of Canal View
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
