Famous FiresCity Hall Leiden

in Famous Fires

The fire at 12-02-1929 in Leiden is one of the greatest in the 20th century. It looked very spectacular, because it broke out during a period of severe frost. At the same day there was the ‘Elfstedentocht’. The extinguishing water froze directly on the windows of the building. Besides the façade nothing remained of the medieval building.
