Along Leiden's Almshouses

There are 35 groups of almshouses in the city centre of Leiden. One for one, these almshouses complexes are idyllic places, where the noise of the town is shut out and where it is as if the time has stood still.

This walk will take you through a selection of Leiden's almshouses. It is possible to choose either a long or a short route. The long route will of course take you to more of the almshouses (during the course of the walk the text will indicate the two alternatives). The point of departure is the same for both routes, Stationsweg Leiden. The city walk is available at the Tourist Information Centre and costs € 3.50.
