  • The oldest church of Lead in an environment reminiscent of the middle ages. Imposing building and the relationship with Patron Saint's Patron Saint and the origin of the nickname Key town is very interesting. The against the Church attached houses and I have not seen before and is a typical Dutch solution to do maintenance on the Church. Very resourceful.

  • This cathedral is massive and spreads out over a large city block in a horizontal direction. Looks great from the outside. Unlike other cathedrals, this one did not seem very inviting so I did not go ...  more »
  • Arriving from Italy, churches such as san Pietro in Leiden fascinate especially from outside but we always leave a little bit of a bad taste in my mouth regarding the interiors and some misgivings about some choices of tour (you enter from the bar, etc.). More than on the Church, it seems interesting to dwell on the history of the pilgrims in Leiden that you can find on the Internet while walking near. Is a very interesting story.

  • Was closed as they were practicing, sounded great but couldn't see anything
  • A very beautiful church. A must see when in Leiden.
  • Most of the time it is closed. Actually, I don't know when it's open. Nonetheless, it's a nice looking church if you are passing through.
  • Worth visiting. Often the site for concerts, and usually free
  • I always look after this church when I walk by but have neverseen the inside

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.
