Leiden

Museum City

Located in the flower-growing district, Leiden has been called the most beautiful city in the Netherlands. The town is mostly known for its university, the oldest in the country, and as the birthplace of Rembrandt van Rijn. Both distinctions strongly influence the small town. The people of Leiden are truly proud of their origins, which is evident by their annual festival "3 Oktober," the Leiden International Film Festival, and the night street markets that sell local products. The town has many spots for spectacular views of the surrounding area, old churches, and traditional Dutch windmills. Leiden is in South Holland Province.

Where to stay in Leiden

A relatively small city with a big student population, Leiden caters to both long- and short-stay visitors making their plans on a limited budget. The historical city center remains the most expensive area, offering rooms in charming old buildings turned into elegant hotels. Just a short walk from this area you can choose from inexpensive lodgings in family-run inns, where cozy rooms come with private parking and free Wi-Fi. For added mobility without the extra cost, look for guesthouses that offer free bikes for use around the city.
