Young Rembrandt Studio
The Young Rembrandt Studio, the 17th-century house on Langebrug 89 in Leiden, is where Rembrandt learned to paint, draw and etch from his master Jacob van Swanenburg in his early years (1606 – 1630).
Visit this unique stop on the Leiden Rembrandt route and get a glimpse into the life of the young Rembrandt. An interesting 7 minute 'video mapping' acquaints you with the young Rembrandt and the most important key figures in his life. What was Rembrandt’s unique talent? What materials did he use and how? Look back on the first 25 years of the life of the world's most famous Golden Age master painter: Rembrandt.
The Young Rembrandt Studio is open from Tuesdays to Sundays from 12:00 to 17:00, and charges no admission. The video projection lasts 7 minutes and can be experienced by a maximum of 10 people at the same time. Advance booking is not possible.
The Young Rembrandt Studio is a great addition to the Rembrandt walking tour called ‘In the footsteps of the young Rembrandt’. On this tour, all authentic Rembrandt locations in the central city of Leiden are connected together, such as his birthplace and the Latin School that Rembrandt attended. The themed information panels along the route grant an impression of Leiden of Rembrandt’s time. The tour can be booked at the Young Rembrandt Studio and VVV Leiden for € 2.95.
