  The Waag
by Roeffie

De Waag was built in 1659 by the famous dutch architect Pieter Post. He also designed Palace Huis ten Bosch, where our queen lives. Until 1972 it was in use for tradepurposes like weighing and selling cheese.

Then the city of Leiden bought the uilding to preserve it and use it as a multipurpose theatre for music recitals, meetings etc.
