“nice free view over the city”
Review of De Burcht

De Burcht
Ranked #9 of 85 things to do in Leiden
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 January 2018 via mobile

If you are looking for something to do in between activities you can have a quiet time-out above the roofs of Leiden. You may be able to discern more when you visit De Buurcht in winter because the surrounding trees wont obstruct the view with their leaves. The builiding offers an idea of city fortification in the middle-ages.

Worth it if you wanna have some pretty pictures of Leiden. Go up and walk around the castle, take some pictures, I loved it, I'm sure you'd too... And it's free

It is one of the sites you feel you need to visit and certainly the views make the brief climb worth it. More to see in the immediate area before or afterwards in this picturesque part of Leiden. Busy market on Saturday and Wednesday, cafes, restaurants & bars as well as interesting shops

This small citadel is cramped between the narrow streets of Leiden and is an interesting part the old town, which you will probably stumble across.

You can climb the walls and get a great view of the city from up there!

It is easy to walk around the various sites in Leiden. Well worth a visit and not far from the Station. Great views and a bit of a climb.
