Pilgrim Walking Tour

The wonderful new Pilgrim Walking Tour will be launched on Monday October 15th 2018. It has been set up by collaboration of the Leiden American Pilgrim Museum, Erfgoed Leiden en Omstreken, Museum De Lakenhal and Leiden Marketing. The tour also has connecting points with other interesting walking tours, e.g. the Rembrandt-tour. In the future, the walking tour will be expanded with AR (Augmented Reality) and/or VR (Virtual Reality) features. The tour will be available in English at the end of 2018. The Leiden American Pilgrim Museum offers an elaborate alternative English version of the tour.

Follow in the footsteps of the Pilgrims, the illustrious forefathers of the United States, and discover the suprising origin of some customs and habits that they brought with them on the Mayflower from Leiden to the New World 400 years ago. Go back in time and experience what their environment was like in the Golden Age.

The walking tour, with all its lavishly illustrrated background stories, numerous anecdotes and over 20 area maps around the more than 40 places of interest, is the ideal starting point for an unforgettable walk through historic Leiden.
