Rembrandt Walk
This tour leads you through Rembrandt’s Leiden life. The Guide starts at the Stadstimmerwerf (The old construction Wharf) and together you walk past the artist’s place of birth as well as other noteworthy spots showing you what influenced Rembrandt’s early life before he definitely settled as a painter in Amsterdam. The walk ends in the center of town where we can still see the house where this famous Dutch artist had his first painting lessons.

A minimum of 5 participants is required for the walking tour to take place.

Price: 8 EUR / person, incl. VAT.

     
   

 

Highlights of the city - City- and Almshouses Tour
Leiden as a city evolved along the banks of the river Rhine, where the fortress had been built and the counts had also settled.

Walking along Leiden’s many canals and almshouses the guide will sketch an image of the Golden Age in which the majority of the people depended on the cloth industry and these goods were shipped the world over; a time when Dutch painters flourished and Leiden university was founded.

A minimum of 5 participants is required for the walking tour to take place.

Price: 8 EUR / person, incl. VAT.

   

 

History of Diversity Walk
It’s the 1600s and Leiden is bustling with communities of British Quakers, Flemish and German refugees, French Huguenotes, Sephardic Jews and merchants from all over Europe and beyond. Not a minor detail, but at one point making upto 50% of the population! The story of the rise and blossoming of the Dutch republic (16th and 17th century) cannot be told without diversity. Let’s walk by various religious buildings, explore the cultural influences on architecture and reflect on the places of memory of intercultural dialogue as well as conflict. This history helps us to discuss the often praised culture of tolerance in the context of a world of transnational mobility and trade. Finally there is the story of migration in the 20th century, both forced (in the context of World War Two) and invited (so-called ‘Guestworkers’). 

A minimum of 5 participants is required for the walking tour to take place.

Price: 10 EUR / person, incl. VAT.

Leiden Canal Trip
Sail through Leiden and you will experience the historical culture of the city: national monuments, museum and almshouses are all situated near the water.

The Hortus Botanicus is part of the University of Leiden, the oldest university in the Netherlands: from the canal you'll get the best view!

Leiden still has two original city gates, one of them being the charming Zijlpoort which dates back to the 16th century.
