EXPLORE! is a project to discover the history of the Pieterskerk Leiden in your own way. A journey of discovery through the ages. The Pieterskerk has been part of the heart of the city of Leiden for nearly 900 years. Leiden has always played an important role in the history of the Netherlands.
The subjects directly related to the Pieterskerk can be identified by the logo of the Pieterskerk.
Scroll through the centuries and you will see that the history of the Netherlands runs through the Pieterskerk. The very place where you put down your feet inside the Pieterskerk is very likely one where Floris V, Rembrandt, John Quincy Adams, Winston Churchill, Nelson Mandela or Queen Beatrix have left their footprints behind.
