"Seat of Dutch Learning"

Leiden is the home of the oldest university in the Netherlands, and its halls are the proving ground for the nation's elites. It is much like Oxford in England (a city with which Leiden shares sister city status) or Harvard in the United States; a synonym for brains, entitlement, innovation, or some combination of the three. The University owns many buildings and so the locations of events and things to see here may vary. There are also several buildings which function as museums, offering pieces for display or providing space for those who display them.
