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 you catch 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 and the socalled Pilgrim Fathers lived in Leiden.
The group size is limited to 15 participants. In cases of larger groups more tour guides will be made available.
