The Park has also a birdcage with beautiful exotic birds.”

“Het Koetshuis stamt uit het jaar 1657 toen Leiden nog een lakenstad was. De kooplieden kwamen per koets van heinde en ver om hun waren “de lakens” te verkopen. Soms waren de kooplieden dagen onderweg en Het Koetshuis werd dan gebruikt om de koetsen in te stallen. Naast Het Koetshuis was “het Herenlogement” waar de kooplieden overnachten. The Coach House dates back to 1657 when Leiden was a city lake. The merchants came by carriage from near and far to sell their wares "sheets". Sometimes the merchants were days on the road and The Carriage House was then used to store the carriages. Besides The Carriage House was "the Lord Logement" where the merchants stay. ”
