Discover the city of Leiden

Leiden is a city in the Netherlands ideally situated between The Hague and Amsterdam and only 12 kilometres away from the Sea shore.

Everything that characterises Leiden’s Golden Age heritage survives to this day: the picturesque historic city centre still holds its landmarks from that time in the form of beautiful city mansions by age old canals. 

Venues

ESOF2022 in Leiden will have several venues which will all welcome different elements of the conference programme. All the venues are located in the city center and are reachable in 5 minutes walking distance. The venues for this ESOF conference have a rich history like the Pieterskerk or the Stadsgehoorzaal.
