A must to see is the Town Hall, or as they
say in Dutch, the Stadhuis ....

In 1588 a begin was made with the rebuilding of the
Town Hall that had been partially destroyed by the
Spaniards in 1575.

It is typical of the Dutch Renaissance style. In the
facade of the building the coat of arms of Delft and
Alkmaar flank those of Oudewater itself. They were
presented in 1588 as a sign of the alliance that
existed between the three towns.
