Travel Guide of Leiden (Netherlands)

Leiden is nestled at the heart of the Netherlands, and boasts the second-largest city in the country after Amsterdam. Many tourists choose holiday homes in Leiden for its picturesque scenery and idyllic location, situated along the Old Rhine River. Intersected by small canals and tree-lined quays, there are also a range of interesting pieces of architecture within the city of Leiden itself - the most noteworthy are its impressive university buildings, which date back to the 16th century. Of course, with its large student population and excellent university, others choose holiday rentals in Leiden to enjoy the city’s fantastic nightlife.

Things to do in Leiden

The city of Leiden boasts a range of exciting events throughout the year, the most notable of which is the Leiden International Film Festival. Held every October, it shows both mainstream and art-house films in the city’s museums and cinemas. Also celebrated at this time are the 3rd of October celebrations, which honour the end of the Spanish siege on Leiden with a large fun fair and beer festival. Outside the city, the landscapes are ideal for outdoor pursuits: simply cycling and walking through the Brabant countryside will unearth picturesque hamlets such as Ofwegen, and there are also opportunities to enjoy sailing off the coast.

Things to see in Leiden

Holiday homes in Leiden are ideal for enjoying outdoor pursuits, both along the Old Rhine and the Braassem cycling and walking routes. The beaches and dunes of Katwijk and Noordwijk are particularly beautiful, and water sports enthusiasts will enjoy the shores of Kagerplassen. But travel to one of the cities in the area, and you’ll find a range of exciting historical sites. To the west of Leiden city you’ll find the Hortus Botanicus, one of the oldest botanical gardens in the world, as well as De Burcht, one of the oldest Motte castles in the Netherlands. Of course, the sites and attractions of Amsterdam are also worth visiting, and located just a 30 minute drive away from our holiday lettings in Leiden.
