Leiden: City of discoveries

Situated at what has traditionally been an important junction where waterways and roads cross stands a city that will enchant you: Leiden. Leiden is a medium-sized, lively and historic university town at only 15 minutes by train from the airport Schiphol (Amsterdam International Airport). The city is famous for its almshouses, university, museums and glorious history. In 1575, Leiden had the distinction of becoming the first city in the northern Netherlands to have a university. Legend has it that the university was a reward for the heroic resistance to the Spanish occupation. Leiden University became one of the leading universities in Europe and the tremendous degree of freedom of conscience stimulated the school's growth. 
Leiden is also the place where Rembrandt was born and inspired so many other influential painters. But even after this era Leiden continued to attract scientists, artists and industry. The canals, the historical buildings, the alleyways, the treasuries of knowledge, culture and science: Leiden is definitely worth seeing.
