Visiting Leiden

by dasantek

Can anybody recommend a hotel in Leiden with a great view?

Re: Visiting Leiden

The above are situated at Leiden canals.

There are hotels at the city limits, but you first have a view on the highway.

Do yo prefer an inner city or a landscape view?


Re: Visiting Leiden


Hotel Mayflower is also nicely situated in the city center.

There is one hotel just outside the city center which I can recommend:
Hotel Leiden (formerly known as Haagse Schouw).
Situated along the river Rhine, which means there's leisure boating and you can take boat trips right from the hotel.

Travel Tips for Leiden

Keukenhof combination Bus & Admission ticket.

by balhannah

If you catch the Train from Amsterdam like I did, as you depart the main part of Leiden Station there is an Information desk located in the centre. To the right of this are counters where you can buy a 'RETURN BUS & ADMISSION TO KEUKENHOF GARDENS" ticket. Its a good idea to do this, as when I arrived at the Gardens, there was a very long queue, but I just walked straight in. I went to the Gardens the last week of the season, so imagine how long the queue would have been in full season.

If you are not sure which counter, ask at the info desk, they will point you in the right direction.

Leids Ontzet

by tompt

The most important day in the history of Leiden happened in 1574. It is still celebrated every year on the 3rd of October. A local holiday.

At that time the 80 year war raged over our country. In 1574 Leiden was besieged by the spanish. The first time it was a 6 month closure of the city, during the winter of 1573-1574. In march the spanish army went away to battle with the Lodewijk van Nassau. But the freedom didn't last long. In may they were back with 5000 soldiers. City government didn't prepare for the new siege. And the conditions were worse. There was not enough food inside the citywalls. Not only hunger stoke the city but also diseases like the plague.
The spanish tried to force the city to surrender. But the brave people of Leiden wouldn't give up. The story tells us, that the major even offered his own body as food for the people.

The salvation has to come from the Prince of Orange. He ordered the dikes to be destroyed, so the spanish had to flee for the water. During the night of 2 and 3 october 1574 a part of the citywall collapses. The spanish fear an outbreak and from the other side the water, they flee in hurry leaving their just prepared food. The food containing onions, carrots and meat (now known as hutspot, a dutch dish) was eaten by the people of Leiden. When the liberators came later that day they brought herring and white bread.

The city was rewarded for their courage with a university.

Today the feast of Leids Ontzet is still celebrated on the 3rd of October, ever since 1574 traditional food is herring, white bread and hutspot. Early in the morning (around 7 am) the city gives every citizen herring and white bread. Large festivals are in the city that day.

Famoud Dutch painter Rembrandt van Rijn was born and raised right here in Leiden. Near the trainstation at Galgewater you can see several points of interest. For instance the house he used to live in at Weddesteeg or his school, the Latijnse School.

One thing that I found interesting was the vast array of plants that are not only on show but available for sale here. Hopefully in these pictures I can give you some idea of the variety on display at different points in the gardens.

Internet/Gaming/Photo Backups

by rsilva

Although I have never used it myself (I live very close to it), this is a centrally-located Internet Cafe, that provides not only Internet access, but also computers for gamings and the possibility to burn your photos on a CD.
I don't know the exact rates, but a friend who used it mentioned they were reasonable and since it is centrally located anyway, you can just come by and take a look.

It is called "Game On" and is located on Kort Rapenburg, which is the street perpendicular to the two main shopping streets, Haarlemmerstraat and Breestraat, right at the beginning (coming from the station). Phone number is 071 5663608.
