Leiden is a city located on Old Rhine, not far from the Hague and Amsterdam. It is a university city since 1575. This I just have to quote from Wikipedia: "The University of Leiden is famous for its many developments
including Snells law (by Willebrord Snellius), the famous Leyden jar, a
capacitor made from a glass jar, invented in Leiden by Pieter van Musschenbroek
in 1746. Another development was in cryogenics: Heike Kamerlingh Onnes (1913
Nobel prize winner in physics) liquefied helium for the first time (1908) and
later managed to reach a temperature of less than one degree above the absolute
minimum. Albert Einstein also spent some time at Leiden University during his
early to middle career."
It is pretty to be explored from the water by boat and on foot.
