Leeuwarden Weigh House

This red brick construction dates from 1598. It is cantoned at the corners with heraldic lions above which runs a frieze sculpted with motifs. The weighing of butter and cheese took place here until 1880. The large canopy was designed to protect the merchandise from the sun.
