Among art lovers, Leiden is renowned for being the birthplace of Rembrandt, who lived there for 25 years before moving to Amsterdam. In Rembrandtplein, a statue depicting the artist as a teen stands erect near the place where he spent his childhood.

Cultural life is bustling here, thanks to the city’s 13 museums, including four national ones. The city is home to Hortus Botanicus Leiden, the historic botanical gardens where tulips were planted in Dutch soil for the first time in 1593. It features many rare plants and trees from all over the world.
