Explore and see more!

This Murder Mystery is a fun and imaginative way to explore the beautiful and vibrant city of Leiden at your own pace and time. An easy to follow route will enable you to crack the fiendish clues on the route and discover whodunit whilst taking in some of the most fascinating sites of the city along the way.

The route winds its way round the nicest canal in Leiden, Rapenburg. Along the way, you will see some of the prettiest courtyards and pass the stunning Hortus Botanicus with the old Observatory. You’ll walk down old alleyways with quaint shops and lovely squares around the Sint Pieterskerk, The route will pass many cafes and restaurants offering plenty of opportunities for a drink and to participate in the national sport: people watching. You could also have a picnic or just laze around in one of the parks.

The route is suitable for all ages – 6 to 110!

Children under the age of around 11 years may struggle to solve a lot of the clues as the route is written in what we like to call ‘adult language’, but with a little bit of help from an older person, even they can get involved. 

The Murder Mystery is about 3.2 km long, takes about 2 hours to solve and is for sale for €7,50 at the Tourist Information Centre Leiden.
