Gouda Waag (Town Hall)

This classical structure was built in 1668 by Pieter Post. Its facade is decorated with a bas-relief representing the weighing of cheese, which used to be done here. The Waag houses the Goudse Waag, Kaasen Ambachtenmuseum (Museum of Cheese and Traditional Crafts), which presents an overview of the production of Gouda cheese, as well as pipe- and candle-making. The pretty chapel of St. Agnes (Agnietenkapel), located behind the Weigh house, has been restored.
