A lady guided us through the building and showed us around. She was very smart, understanding and witty! We enjoyed her comments and her good command of English. The building is a must-see in Leiden, especially for those interested in education.

We enjoyed the architecture and grounds of the university. It's located along a canal in the midst of a lively neighborhood.

A nice setting by the cannal but nothing really special. It may be better on a sunnier day but still worth going to see.
