De Bekentenissen van Petrus – “The Confessions of Peter”

Walk along with De Bekentenissen van Petrus.

In 2015 De bekentenissen van Petrus written by Jeroen Windmeijer, was published. This ‘Leiden thriller’ is a story by the style of Dan Brown, set against a backdrop of the festivities of the Third of October, which are celebrated every year as a commemoration of the Relief of the city in 1574. After three months of being besieged by the Spaniards, Leiden was relieved by the army led by Willem of Orange. Next to traditional ceremonies, the city hosts a fun fair and music events.

This city walk leads you along locations in the city center of Leiden that play a role in this, now also outside of Leiden, popular thriller. You follow the route that the main characters Peter de Haan and Judith Cherev took on Wednesday the 2nd and Thursday the 3rd of October 1996. The above-mentioned route is about 6 km long and takes about 2 hours. This is not a roundtrip. You end up in the heart of the city. The walk offers ample opportunity for shopping, visiting a museum (you will encounter several along the way) or stop somewhere to eat or drink.


Het Pauluslabyrint – “St. Paul’s Labyrinth”

Walk along with Het Pauluslabyrint.

In 2017 Het Pauluslabyrint by Jeroen Windmeijer was published, who is now better known as the Dan Brown of the Lowlands. Het Pauluslabyrint is the sequel to De Bekentenissen van Petrus, which was published in 2015.

The walk takes you past locations that play a role in Het Pauluslabyrint. You follow parts of the road that main character Peter de Haan took through the old city center of Leiden on 20 and 21 March 2015, to unravel the ancient mystery. The recommended route is approximately six kilometers long (= ± 1.5 hours), finishing in the heart of the city center. Towards the end of the route, it is possible to shorten the route by about fifteen minutes.


Het Pilgrim Fathers Complot – “The Pilgrim Fathers Conspiracy”

Walk along with Het Pilgrim Fathers Complot.

Leiden, otherwise so quiet, is startled when the chairman of the local Masonic lodge is killed in a horrible way. Almost at the same time a manuscript is found in the municipal archive, in which an anonymous author tells the till then hidden history of the Pilgrim Fathers, the Founding Fathers of the United States. They lived in Leiden from 1609 to 1620, after which some of them left for America. University teacher Peter de Haan had unintentionally become involved in these matters. Why did such a large part of the Pilgrim Fathers stay behind in Leiden? What do the Freemasons have to do with it? And what relationship did Peter’s girlfriend have with the murdered chairman?

The walk takes you past locations that play a role in Het Pilgrim Fathers Complot. In the old city center of Leiden, you follow parts of the road that main character Peter de Haan had to travel through to unravel the ancient mystery.
