Old Customs House (Koifhus)

Interesting
This building with varnished tiles on its roof was once home to the town's Customs House, where merchandise subject to communal tax used to be stored in the ground floor of the main building (1480). The upper floor was home to the town's council, the law courts and the council of magistrates. To the left, the late-16C spiral staircase, crowned by a pinnacle turret, leads to an attractive wooden gallery.
