Leerdam is a city and municipality in the western Netherlands, in the province of South Holland. Leerdam is the most eastern town of the province of South Holland and is situated almost exactly in the middle of the three highways A2, A15 and A27. Leerdam received city rights in 1407. The small river Linge, bordered by beautiful water meadows, defines the atmosphere and tone of the landscape. Several centuries ago Leerdam formed a part of the Vijfheerenlanden domain, before it was raised to the level of County in 1498. In 1551, Leerdam, together with Acquoy, became property of the House of Orange and part of the County of Holland. The rich history of Leerdam can be found in well-kept historic buildings such as the Grote Kerk, the Hofje van Mevrouw van Aerden, the remaining and restored city walls on the Zuidwal and the Oude Raadhuis. Since the 18th century, the town`s culture has been strongly influenced by the glass industry and the timber industry. This, with the National Glass Museum, the Glass Centre, and several art galleries, make Leerdam a major tourist attraction in the Netherlands. We visited the AquaZoo Leerdam in the autumn of 2018.
