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.
