Hotel Avifauna is a 3 star hotel in Alphen aan de Rijn. The location is very central and between three major cities (Amsterdam, Utrecht and Leiden).

The main centre and also shopping centre of Alphen aan den Rijn is about 10 minutes from the hotel. It has a nice town centre with a lot of shops and terraces at the water. What is a big plus point is that guests of the hotel have free entry to the Bird park. ArrivalWe were told we could check in from 14 o clock and get into the park. So w...Read More

A popular shop in the city of Leiden is called Oil & Vinegar and it’s a must to visit it when you are a fan of cooking just like me. I like visiting little unique shops when on holiday. It’s fun to discover new things and especially products which you can use in the kitchen or just at home.The Oil & Vinegar shops sell a large range of vinegars and oils.

I’m not really an expert of these things and although everything looks very interesting I was glad the staff was more than happy to assist us.The shop often has little tastings which y...Read More
