Descartes, Lorentz, Mahler, Freud and Einstein all settled on the banks of Rapenburg.
The International Institute for Animal Ethics is located in the city centre of Leiden along the Rapenburg, one of Europe’s most beautiful canals. We really love our inspiring environment. Leiden facilitates the oldest university of The Netherlands and the first botanical garden. The population of the Rapenburg is described (Enthoven, 2013) as “a gathering of classical academics, research institutes, libraries, museums, law offices and startups within the ICT and the creative industries. They know themselves, each in their own way, grounded into social innovation. They have a responsibility towards human society and experiment with new innovations on the shoulders of giants.”
