Go food tour Leiden

A food tour with Go Food Tours Leiden is a guided culinary promenade with stops at carefully selected restaurants, bars, cafes and / or specialty stores. At the stops we sample delicious food and enjoy stories from enthusiastic entrepreneurs with a true passion for their profession. We season the walk with anecdotes from some of the exciting places we pass.


1.2.3 October!

3 October celebration

You’d better be prepared for Leiden’s biggest party of the year! On the 3rd of October, Leiden traditionally celebrates the Relief of Leiden. Basically, much of the city centre will be transformed into a huge funfair, you won’t have class (unless the 3rd is on a Saturday like this year) and there will be lots of things going on in town.


24 October

Naturalis is a museum entirely for animal knowledge. You will meet all kinds of live animals: snakes, spiders, frogs … But plants and minerals can also be poisonous. You can hold the animals!
