This is one of the two remaining gates to the historic city of Leiden. Our hotel was right next to this and we could see it from our window. Very cool part of Leiden's history.

Next to our hotel, the gate was beautiful. The entire town of Leiden is one of the nicest in the Netherlands. Walk or bike, I great place to spend a leisurely hour or so.

This is easy to get to if you are visiting the old city and the gate and bridge are worth the visit.

Beautiful entry gate from the 1600s. I took this photo at 1700 hours in mid-July to get the sun in the right position.

There is not much to see here despite its historical significance. We noticed a small hotel nearby, a playground and the Molen de Put. Worth a quick stop for a photo. This section of Leiden is very charming with its small picturesque alleyways, museums, churches...More
