On Sunday 15 May 2022, the Hortus botanicus Leiden will be difficult to reach because of the Leiden Marathon. Many roads in the city centre are closed, also for pedestrians.

Our travel and route advice for Sunday 15 May

  • By car: enter Leiden from the southwest via Churchilllaan/N206. Then take the Haagweg and park at the Haagweg car park. From there it is about a 10-minute walk to the museum.
  • From Leiden Central Station: walk past the bus station, cross Plesmanlaan and take the footpath alongside the railway towards Transvaalkade. Walk via Lopsenstraat and Morsweg over the Rijnzicht bridge, turn left onto Haagweg. Continue along Noordeinde until you can turn right onto Rapenburg (about a 20-minute walk).
  • Unfortunately, the garden cannot be reached by bus on this day.
