The Batavian Athens or The Rapenburg and its Surroundings
(Anton Korteweg) The Low Countries - 2010, № 18, pp. 108-117
Leiden is characterised not only by the Netherlands' oldest and most famous university and a number of associated museums of international renown, but also by what it lacks. Visit its almshouses, read its verses on the walls in several languages; discover the coldest and the hottest spot on earth. You won't find church towers nor market square, but tens of thousands of bikes instead. Vaut le voyage.
