The houseboat is moored in the Nieuwe Rijn, on the edge of Leiden's centre.

And just around the corner are a restaurant and a supermarket. There is good parking (free) and you're only 5 minutes away from the motorway. Leiden train station is on both the intercity network and the night train network, so trains run frequently and throughout the night.

* the departure point of the Pilgrim Fathers

* Rembrandt's place of birth

* home of the Netherlands' oldest university

* the town with the most museums per capita in the Netherlands

The South Holland Province region

The Hollands, both South and North, form the wealthiest part of the country. This shows in their rich architecture and picturesque towns and villages, the abundance of museums and theatres, and great number of restaurants and shopping areas. Although Holland is one of the most densely populated areas in the world, great efforts are made to keep part of it free from buildings, the socalled Green Heart. It is great for recreational purposes, such as sailing, cycling, walking and horse ridiing.


Leiden is a market town, whose market has been in existence for more than 900 years. Its university recently had its 430th anniversary. Countless museums bear witness to Leiden’s important role in Holland’s history. It is the birth place of Rembrandt van Rijn, who was named after the river Rhine which flows through Leiden and in which the Pride of Leyden is moored. At the same time, Leiden is very much a modern town. It is great for shopping and eating out. As it’s quite compact, all features can easily be reached on foot. You can stroll through the historic cobblestoned centre, visit one of the museums or take a drink on one of the floating terraces.
