Stichting De Leidse Rederij (Foundation Leiden’s Shipping Company)
‘Nothing is too crazy for us!
Leiden is a proper water city, with some 28 km of picturesque canals and green fringed moats. Along old waterways, we can see many sites and monuments in the cosy city centre, such as Leiden University, many museums, monumental buildings, beautiful almhouses, old alleys and other remains of a glorious past. This treasure of knowledge, culture and science inspired us in 2004 to found a Shipping Company in Leiden in order to show this splendor from the waterfront. We started with a small fleet, which has in the meantime expanded to eleven characteristic boats.
