Leidschendam Restaurants

  • Tavern de Oude Sluis

    Translates to The Old Sluice. It's a pub with a billiard (or so it says on the window) just in front of the St. Peter & Paul church. If you sit on the terrace outside, you have a great view of the handworked bridge that in summer season opens and closes all the time to let boats through. Quite an enjoyable sight while you enjoy your drink.

  • Coffee Club

    In the new part of Leidschendam you find this restaurant just outside a shopping mall. Along a rather large pond there are these modern pavillions, each being a separate restaurant.

    A small theatre for 101 audience that looks quite modern on the inside. I'm guessing it must be quite fun to watch the smaller Dutch theatre productions here.

Leidschendam Shopping

  • Cheese shop

    You wonder why this nice looking cheeseshop is closed on a Thursday afternoon. Maybe they were on holiday?

  • Pharmacist

    The pharmacist side of the building is better maintained than the other side (probably a pizza takeaway?)

  • Shopping street

    The main shopping area is in the new part of Leidschendam. Obviously, the old part has been neglected but therefore all the more enjoyable to stroll through. It is a busy traffic road too, though.

Leidschendam Local Customs

  • Boat people

    One of the main attractions at a bridge may not necessarily be the boats themselves. It's the people on them, that are often cause for amusement.

  • What a job!

    Two sluice or bridge wardens spend the whole day walking to and fro two bridges to open and close them by hand. I'm thinking about once every half hour.

  • Audience

    The opening and closing of the sluice and bridges attracts quite an audience. Although I suspect they are locals, passing time on the benches and amusing themselves by chatter and a glance now and then at the passing boats.

    'Wachtplaats uitsluitend voor de doorgaande vaart' means as much as that you can't moor off your boat there unless you're waiting for the sluice to open.
