The heart of Leiden is located at the Burcht. This is where the old and the new Rhine rivers come together, and where the city was born. From here the city expanded to now include one of the world’s longest historical canals. This ring around Leiden is currently being transformed into a lively urban park: ‘Singelpark’. This park is a co-production of urban professionals and local residents.
For many people the Singelpark forms the ultimate Leiden hang-out spot. On this tour, we’ll take you to our favourite places, bars and shops. Home is where the heart is.
