  Gouda: Waag
by OlafS

The Waag, or weighing house, is very similar to that in Leiden. Surprise; both were designed by architect Pieter Post. Inside is an exhibition about cheese manufacturing. Gouda is known for cheese, even though no cheese is made here actually, only sold. The square in front of it is also the scene for some cheesy ritual for tourists every Thursday, a cheesemarket. If you, like me, don't like that sort of thing you may want to avoid this place on Thursdays.
