An ancient university city and the birthplace of Rembrandt, Leiden offers a surprising contrast between charming canals and 17th-century architecture and its buzzing nightlife. It was from the tulip fields surrounding Leiden that this bulb was introduced to the rest of Europe, bringing prosperity to the city. This is a town with plenty for you to see and do when you book holiday accommodation here. Your accommodation choice ranges from waterside apartments to family-sized townhouses and holiday cottages near tulip fields.
