Leiden University follows up on the advice of the RIVM and Rijksoverheid and takes new measures to minimize the spread of the corona virus Covid 19. Because of that, the Old Observatory will close until further notice. All events will be cancelled an guided tours cannot continue either. We are sorry for the inconvenience. If the situation improves sooner than expected we will share that information on this web page. If you signed up for any events or booked a private tour in this period, you will be contacted as soon as possible.
