One of two surviving gates of the old city, this site almost has potential. An explanatory panel would help make this attraction more meaningful. If you are near the Central Station and have a moment, take a picture. The day I was there, a publicity film was photographed, as may be seen. If you like old cannons, take a picture... More

Well, tripadvisor wants me to say a lot about this or I cannot submit my review. But really, what more can you say about a building such as this?

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.

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!

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... More

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.

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.

One of the two city gateds of Leiden that are still standing. It is a pity that they build a very big parking garage just behind it. nicew neighbourhood though with Molen De Put right next to it on the river Rhine and the ethnological Museum on the other side
