The location of the city of Leiden is ideal: just steps away from major cities like The Hague and Amsterdam. The city is internationally accessible, from Schiphol Airport in 20 minutes and the smaller Rotterdam The Hague Airport is 25 minutes away. Leiden is also just a dozen kilometers away from the coast of Noordwijk, Katwijk and the Keukenhof, the famous flower fields.
Located between the A4 and A44, Leiden is easily accessible by car. The inner city is practically car-free, but in a circle around the historic heart more than three thousand parking spaces are spread over several parking garages and parking lots. Below the Meelfabriek Garden a parking garage is being built. Residents and visitors can use this car park.
Leiden is easily accessible by public transport. From all directions, trains stop at Leiden Central Station. The Hague is ten minutes by train and Amsterdam Central Station only 35 minutes. From the station you can walk downtown. Buses circulate with a high frequency in almost all places in the city and the region.
