Key to Discovery

Situated at what has traditionally been an important junction where waterways and roads meet, stands a city that will enchant you: Leiden. The city is famous for its university, museums and glorious history.

The canals, the historic buildings, the alleyways, the treasuries of knowledge, culture and science: Leiden is definitely worth seeing. There are many things to discover, to see and to experience in this city. With so much history, so many museums and theatres, a vibrant inner city, monuments, shops, restaurants, cafés and a university, no one can become bored.
