"de Waag" De Waag Tip by mightywease

De Waag, Amsterdam: 16 reviews and 20 photos

Once part of the city walls the impressive Waag has been a weigh house, where merchants brought their produce to be weighed and measured, housed an operating theatre – where Rembrandt painted “The Anatomy Lesson of Dr. Tulp”, a place of public executions and is now a very pleasant bar and café.
Even if you decide not to stop for a coffee and a cake it’s worth going to look at the very striking building.
