Wall Formula Tours

Monday 11 July 2022

Explore the Leiden Wall Formulas!

In addition to the famous wall poems, Leiden also has a number of so-called wall formulas. These are scientific formulas that were devised by someone connected to Leiden University. Each of these formulas has had a great influence on science all over the world. And thus also on what pupils and students learn at school and university.

The wall formulas show this history of science to its(casual) passenger. On the walls you will not only find a formula but also an image and a sentence describing the discovery. On 11 July you can take a free guided tour along the Leiden wall formulas. The tour will take about an hour, during which the guide will tell you about the discoveries and the people behind them.

The Tours will be done in multiple languages.
