Monday, October 2: the fair opens, the goods market starts, the city becomes more and more vibrant. And that bustle starts at Central Station.

Once again this year, the NS is transforming Central Station into a city gate: the Gateway to Leiden's Relief. The station is beautifully decorated inside and outside and there is always something going on on October 2 and 3. From 2:00 PM to 6:00 PM, the NS will welcome travelers to Leiden in a special way: there is free stew for every traveler and passer-by. The Gate to Leiden's Relief is opened in an appropriate manner at the station. Curious how? Come to the station and experience it yourself!

This event is organized by the Dutch Railways/NS Stations
