In the weekend of 9 and 10 September 2017, 33 Leiden monuments open their doors to the public. This is a unique opportunity to visit old buildings rich with history, ancient homes and university buildings. In many monuments there are small exhibitions and performances by Leiden choirs. This year’s theme is Farmers, Citizens and Countrymen; the monuments you can visit have traditionally been places where people of all ranks and positions meet, both inside and outside the city.
You can start with a coffee at the Hortus botanicus Leiden at 10 or finish at our place and buy some bulbs!
