City Hall

The city hall in Leiden dates back to the middleages. But the marvellous facade wasn't added to thebuilding until 1597. The picture shows you the new city hall, which was built in 1940.

Stadhuis

The impressive Stadhuis dominates Breestraat. I think it was damaged by fire and rebuilt at the start of the last century
