If you ever come to the Netherlands, then add Leiden to your list of places to visit. It’s not so far from Amsterdam and a good jumping point to go to the tulip fields or the beaches in Katwijk or the Hague. After a hike up the hill to the Burcht, then you can have a drink at the foot of the hill.

How to get to De Burcht: Entrance at the the sandstone gate on Burgsteeg 11 or from the Oude Rijn through the Van der Sterrepad. Visiting hours are daily from 07:00 AM to 11:00 PM.
