About Leiden and the Netherlands

Leiden is centrally located between the capital city of Amsterdam and the governmental city, The Hague. Both are really well connected by train; The Hague is just 15 minutes away and Amsterdam 25 minutes.

Amsterdam is a cultural treasure trove of events, beautiful historical buildings, word-renowned museums, city parks, pubs, and clubs. Staff members at Webster University the Netherlands can arrange tours to explore the architectural beauties and tell you about their history.  For example, you might rent a boat and explore Amsterdam from the water.  Amsterdam also hosts more than 300 festivals per year, which makes it the Festival City of the Netherlands. Experience performing arts festivals like the internationally leading Holland Festival as well as cultural, food, dance, and music festivals.  

On the more serious side, you can visit The Hague which hosts the Seat of the government and the International Criminal Court and Court of Justice. The Hague is the location for most embassies and more than 150 international organizations; this international political environment makes it one of the hosting cities of the United Nations. Webster University the Netherlands has various connections with these institutions and regularly organizes field trips there.  Although the Netherlands might be small, there is so much more to see and do! And everything is within reach with the extensive railway system that connects you to almost every city.
