Before and after your meeting
Leiden is the perfect city to wander around and get lost in. Even though it will be pretty difficult to actually get lost since it is very compact. Take a stroll in the historic city centre along scenic canals, historic ports and charming courtyards. Or take the time to visit one of Leiden’s 13 museums. No other city in Holland offers as many museums in walking distance. Discover art by Dutch masters like Rembrandt and Lievens, dive into medical history and learn more about the Relief of Leiden (Leidens Ontzet). Or just take in the cityscape while enjoying a drink on one of the many cosy terraces. Looking for more tips? Take a look at the ‘After your meeting in Leiden’ page.
