If you are looking to spend some time in a historic city in the Netherlands, you may want to start your travels in Leiden, a town that was important in the development of science and of the country of the Netherlands itself.
You will probably want to start you journey in Leiden Downtown, where you can pick up a car hire in order to explore some of the historic building around the city.
One of the first journeys to make, would be from Leiden Downtown to the nearby University of Leiden, where many science breakthroughs have been made, from the famous Leyden Jar capacitor to new information in cryogenics. Even Albert Einstein spent part of his career in Leiden. Many of the buildings are interesting in their own right, including the Bibliotecha Thysiana, which is in a building built in 1655. The library contains many legal and historic documents from years past.
There are many historic churches to explore in the town as well, many which are centuries old and show the development of church architecture over the year. You can start with the Church of Saint Peter, which was built in 1315 and contains monuments honouring Leiden's many scholars, go to the Church of Saint Pancras, which was built in the 15th Century. The Marekark is another church which was designed and built in 1639; it is an interesting example of Dutch Classicism. The church is still in use today.
Leiden is also home of Johan Thorbecke, who wrote the Dutch Constitution at his home at Garenmarkt 9, not far from Leiden Downtown.
One of the many festivals that Leiden hosts is one on Oct. 3, which celebrates the end of a Spanish siege of the city in 1574. People on the town not only have a fair and a parade, but also throw a party with the traditional foods of herring, hotspot and white bread.

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.
