Arriving by Air
Leiden city is ideally situated: only a stone’s throw from large centres such as The Hague and Amsterdam. The city is within easy reach from abroad, with Schiphol airport 20 minutes away and the smaller Rotterdam The Hague Airport 25 minutes away.
Leiden is easily accessible by car due to its location between the A4 and A44 motorway. The inner city is mainly car-free. There are more than three thousand car parking spaces arranged in a circle around the historic heart, spread across various multi-story and ground-level car parks.
Leiden is very easy to reach by public transport. Trains from all directions stop at Leiden central station. The Hague is ten minutes away by train and Amsterdam Central Station only 35 minutes. It is a short stroll from the station to the inner city. There are also high frequency bus services to virtually all areas within the city and its vicinity.
