Historical Leiden, Leiden: 101 reviews and 221 photos
The nice restaurant I knew there to be at Zijlpoort was beckoning. As long as I've known it, cars cannot pass through this gate but cyclists and pedestrians can.
Left of the gate is a graveyard with a lovely little chapel. On the other side, boats and yachts enter Leiden through a drawbridge.
Strangely enough, the Zijlpoort is not included in the Leiden citywalks. So I had to resort to the website of the restaurant Poort van Leyden, to find out a little more about this one of two remaining city gates.
