Leiden City World Walks

Discover the world in Leiden with these walking tours that are brought to life for Leiden 2022, City of Science. Learn about the city of Leiden, learn about the languages and the cultures that have been studied here for ages and learn about the important footprints of the past.

In Leiden you can get to know the world, with these walks created from a cooperation between the Faculty of Humanities, LeidenGlobal, the Africa Study Centre and the Royal Netherlands Institute of Southeast Asian and Caribbean Studies (KITLV), together with Leiden2022.

These walks will be offered as guided tours multiple times, but there's also the option to walk on your own through a downloadable walking route with explanations.

On this page, we give an overview of the walks available in English: for a complete overview of all Leiden World Walks available in Dutch, please go to the Dutch page.
