With Key City - referring to the city coat of arms with a white shield and two crossed red keys, Leiden is indicated. The history of the city goes back to at least the year 860, when it was still a dike village, built at the foot of an artificial hill. Present-day Leiden is primarily a center of scientific knowledge and new technology. It is not for nothing that Leiden has the oldest university in the Netherlands. On this tour you will not only encounter the large scale of cities, but you will also get to know the smaller villages, such as Roelofarendsveen. This small village supplies 25 percent of Dutch tulip production. During the fair there is an annual beautiful flower parade, a procession with wagons decorated with flowers. Because of the tulip production, the village is also aptly called'the tulip of the Randstad\\\'. And you cross a beautiful system of peat lakes near Leiden: the Kagerplassen. It is the oldest water sports area in the Netherlands and sailing, rowing and motor sports association De Kaag provides the necessary life in the brewery. This association has played a significant role in the development of aquatic tourism around the lakes and the area immerses you in a welcoming and relaxed atmosphere.

In Oude Ade you can view the Vrouw Venne mill. This seesaw mill was built in 1835, but originally dates from the seventeenth century. In 1835, Vrouw Venne was almost completely renovated and an electric pumping station was installed in 1954, after the king's spindle had been broken. In 1961 the mill had fallen into disrepair and it was bought by the Rijnlandse Molenstichting, which had it restored in 1963. Another restoration took place in 1998. You then cycle in the direction of Jachthaven de Brasem NV This marina is a perfect place to enjoy a drink on the terrace when the weather is nice. Many water sports enthusiasts are sailing and windsurfing here when the weather is nice, which creates a cozy atmosphere. Or you can view the beautiful boats that are anchored there. There is always something to see in the pleasant marina.
