Walk past the convenient information columns

In some places in the municipality of Leidschendam-Voorburg you’ll find information columns. They’ll tell you about a historic event, building, or person. That way, you will always know everything about the rich history in Leidschendam-Voorburg!

Developer Same-d was commissioned by Stadsmuseum Leidschendam Voorburg to develop a uniform landmark with a modular composition. The system makes it easy to maintain and replace any parts when necessary. The text panels are digitally printed on aluminium supports. This means the municipality can add new information to the landmarks, which makes them even more special!

How many stadsbakens can you find?

Spread across the municipality, there are 10 columns, all marking a historic occasion, building or person.
