  De Waag
by martin_nl

Just as in a lot of other Dutch cities Leeuwarden also has a Waag. Originally it was a building in which the shipped in goods were weighed and where people paid their import duties. Most important products were butter and cheese! Nowadays it only houses an ATM machine from the Rabobank. Most of the time there are long lines , but across the canal is another ATM-machine by ING bank, that almost never has queues...

Address: Nieuwestad
Directions: Right in the middle of the shopping district, opposite the V&D.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
