Leiden Holland Tourist Information and Vacation Guide
Although cycling is a fundamental method of transportation throughout the Netherlands, it is particularly important in Leiden Holland.
The popularity of cycling is largely due to the large student population and the relatively small size of the town.
There is a massive parking lot available for bicycles at the Leiden Central Train Station (Leiden Centraal).
If you are planning to spend an extended period of time in the Netherlands, it is certainly worth purchasing a bicycle. Otherwise, it is possible to rent a bike on either an hourly, daily or weekly basis.
