NINO is only a ten to fifteen minute walk from Leiden Centraal train station, but it is also possible to take a bus from the station.
Leave the station from the “Centrum” side of the station and continue straight along Stationsstraat. After a few minutes, you will pass the Rijksmuseum voor Volkenkunde (National Museum of Ethnology) on your right. Turn right immediately after passing the museum onto Eerste Binnenvestgracht; the museum buildings will still be on your right. Continue along Eerste Binnenvestgracht; at the end you will see a windmill on your right and a drawbridge over the water. This is the “historic harbor” of Leiden. Cross the bridge and continue onto Weddesteeg, the alley where Rembrandt was born. At the end of the street, turn right onto Noordeinde. Continue along Noordeinde until you cross a large bridge (for car traffic as well as pedestrians). Directly after the bridge, turn left onto Witte Singel. The entrance to NINO is at number 25, in the large red brick buildings of Leiden University.
Leave the station from the “Centrum” side and turn right to the bus station.
- Take city bus 1 in the direction of Leiderdorp (two services per hour) and step out at the "Paterstraat" stop. This bus stop is in front of the University Library, Witte Singel 26. The entrance of NINO is at number 25, ca. 100 meter back from the bus stop.
- Alternatively, take city bus 5 or 6 in the direction of Voorschoten (four services per hour) and step out at the "Noordeinde" stop. Cross the bridge and turn left onto Witte Singel. After ca. 250 meter, NINO is in the first university building on your right hand side.
NINO is housed together with several departments of Leiden University in the Witte Singel-Doelencomplex. The building is known as no. 1173 of the WSD complex or Matthias de Vrieshof 4. It has two entrances: Witte Singel 25 and M. de Vrieshof 4.
