A Canal Cruise in the Cultural city of Leiden!

The city of Leiden does not only have the oldest university of the Netherlands, it also has many beautiful old canals and charming buildings. The best way to discover the amazing heritage is by taking a canal cruise with ‘Bootjes & Broodjes’. You will be amazed by the view that you get while sitting on the boat.

The company assures the best comfort for your stay aboard. If there is sun the boats are uncovered, so that you can enjoy the city and the sun at the same time. On colder days, it gets cozy – the boats are then covered and heated. Leiden ahoi! A cruise though the city is fun for young and old alike.  (The tour takes approx. 50 minutes)
