  • Beautiful entry gate from the 1600s. I took this photo at 1700 hours in mid-July to get the sun in the right position.  more »
  • The Morschpoort the morspoort indicates as the name used to be the only access to the Pest House. Because the Morschpoort popularly called the toemalig Municipal Council pesthuis gate was the name Morschpoort in plated letter. At the great spell change in 1947 is the ch at the end of a Word with a s expired. At the Morschpoort differences are the hangouts and in the Park at mill the well, there is a small but well-kept children's playground.

  • Old tower, great history. Lovely entrance to the city
  • Nice tower, good view of the city
  • It is one of those locations you walk past regularly in Leiden and it is just such a nice view, you stop and stand for a moment to take it all in.
  • Great bride, quite useful to cross canals
  • If you happen to be nearby, go there and take a look. Not that overwhelming, but interesting nonetheless.

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.
