Travelling to Leiden by car

Leiden is easy to reach by car, but the old centre has narrow streets, and parking is difficult. See the following section for directions to the Haagweg parking lot, with a free shuttle to the city centre.

Parking in the Haagweg lot

Only paid parking is available around the museum (Rapenburg 28), and the number of parking places is limited. We therefore recommend that you park your car in the nearbyHaagweg lot(in Dutch only). This is Leidens largest parking lot, with 750 places and a free shuttle to the museum every few minutes. You can also call for free shuttle transport back to the lot: +31 (0)71 512 0071.

The best parking option for buses and coaches is the Haagweg parking lot. Please be aware that in the Leiden city centre, driving or parking a bus for any length of time is prohibited.
