Getting around 


Festival venue overview in Google Maps 


All festival venues (Het Leidse Volkshuis, de Aalmarktzaal, De Branderij & Scheltema) are in downtown Leiden, and within walking distance of the rail station and each other. 


For those arriving by car: 


Our advise for those arriving with a single small harp (or without one) is to drive directly to the parking lot on the Haagweg (address: Haagweg 6, 2311 AA Leiden, google maps). From here, you can walk to the festival & concert venues within 10 minutes, or take a free City shuttle that will fit you and a small harp and get you there even faster. 

You can swap your parking entrance ticket for a day ticket at the festival desk for as little as €6.
