  Der Waag on Nieuwe Market, Amsterdam
by Martin_S.

If for nothing else I would visit the Neuwe Market just for this beautiful building, Der Waag (or Weighing House). This was originally part of the city walls, called St. Anthony's Gate, but was later used for a weighing house and also a guild house.
