Lovely city with small canals full of bicycles. Large bicycle paths, nice streets to walk around.
It is the (law) students city of the Netherlands.
Coffeeshops and cannabis cafés mostly open late in the afternoon after school hours at 16.00 hours in the city center!
Quality weed in almost every coffee shop is less expensive than Amsterdam, which is only 30 minutes drive from Leiden.
All foreigners are allowed to buy cannabis in Leiden, there are no restrictions for tourists, you don't need any papers, just a valid identification document such as an ID card or passport.
Cannabis Coffee Shops near me by City:
Coffee shops near the borders with Belguim and Germany do not aloud tourists. You have to be a dutch citizen or you have to work in the Netherlands to get in and buy your cannabis.
So if you temporarely work or study, get a proof at the city counsel and ask for a GBA-Uitreksel.
