  • St Peter's Church has a long history and is connected with the development of Leiden (there are references from the XIV century) the building is well preserved. Under the arches of the Church hosts a variety of events, including dinner. There is a somewhat unusual in the Church, but these are the realities. The Interior is impressive and it is well visible in the photo. Even Wi-Fi.

  • The Church takes its name from St. Peter/Petrus, against whom Jesus says I will give you the keys of the Kingdom of heaven. And also the city owes its weapon and the key name ' city '. With the 180-year construction of this church was started in 1390. I was already in at events, but now it appeared that the Church only through a somewhat winding route that ends in a desolate little restaurant and, for an additional fee to visit. We found this a somewhat dreary entrance saw further visit.

  • There is a small entrance fee which I wasn't expecting and it is a bit empty inside. But it is very interesting to visit from a historical perspective and the entrance fee helps pay for restoration. It won't take up a huge amount of time so it's good to see alongside other Leiden attractions.
  • Magnificent organ! There's also a second one much smaller. The big church is completely empty which feels quite strange. It also enable you to see all the tomb stone on the floor.
  • Entrance fee 3€. Will never accept to pay entrance to a church. On the signs around the church leading to the entrance no fee is mentioned 🤑
  • A sacred place for University of Leiden
  • Didn't go in, as there is an entry fee
