Leiden was already the center of the cloth industry in the 14th century.
The Cloth Hall from 1640 was an inspection hall for Leiden textiles.
Wool from England was processed, dyed and exported.
Museum the Cloth Hall Leiden also provides information about the city’s history. Well-known artists have captured the city, such as Rembrandt, Lucas van Leyden and Jan Steen.
The most important work is a former altarpiece from the Pieterskerk, ‘The Last Judgment’, a triptych by Lucas van Leyden (1526).
