“Lovely place to walk”
Reviewed 20 April 2014 via mobile

This place is what you can't miss in Leiden. It looks amazing in sunny day, the same it does in the night with all lights :). Nice place not far from Central Station and center of the town.

“Nice pictures :)”
Reviewed 9 February 2014 via mobile

I think this gate if part of most self guided walks through Leiden. It's worth coming here, nice picture spot, but that's it :)
If you want to take a break try Café De La Soul right at the corner, great place!

“Another city gate, a bit smaller... but nice for pictures!”
Reviewed 7 January 2014

This one is smaller than De Zijlpoort and is located on the other side of the center. It is situated close to (behind) Museum Volkenkunde and behind it is a small square with some cafe's, but in my opinion less nice than De Zijlpoort. One plus point is that it is much closer to the actual old center with and close to Leiden Central station!.

“A bit hidden but very nice”
Reviewed 5 September 2013

I didn’t know about this delicate city gate and stumbled upon it while walking towards the Put mill from the Leiden railway station. It looks wonderful and is also a good starting point to discover Leiden.

“Lovely entrance to Leiden”
Reviewed 23 August 2013 via mobile

Walking from Leiden central station it is only a couple of minutes until you reach de poort. Sitting on the water's edge with a typical old style bridge in front it makes for a wonderful entrance to Leiden.
