Even William Shakespeare already knew, "There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy." Man has always been fascinated by what is going on up there. Were you also excitedly watching the very first moon landing? And the space trips of Wubbo Ockels and AndrĂ© Kuipers as well? Then this is the cycling route for you: it not only takes you to Space Expo in Noordwijk, but also to the oldest functioning observatory in the world in Leiden. Are you seeing stars after this bike ride? Then it is best to relax at the 4star Holiday Inn hotel in Leiden, while enjoying a cup of coffee with cake, for example.
