  • Morspoort is interesting to see and walk past, but it is simply a historic gate. After a few minutes looking at the gate, you are ready to continue your walk. 
  • Lead is a very nice old town and then it's definitely worth it to go to such places in the city to go look!

  • 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.
  • If you happen to be nearby, go there and take a look. Not that overwhelming, but interesting nonetheless.
  • Mooie plek. Niet bijzonder
  • The Morspoort is build in 1669 for the city wall of Leiden.
  • Historic city gate, named after the dead criminals who used to hang on the way towards it, to scare people into upholding the law.
