historical drawing of weigh house gouda

De Waag Gouda is a beautiful 17th century building, built in brick in the Dutch Classicism architectural style. Built by the famous architect Pieter Post in 1668.
A tableau of Carrara marble in the historical front facade shows a depiction of the weighing of cheese.
Nowadays you will find in the weighing house a ‘Cheese and Crafts Museum’ and the tourist office. Saying cheese means saying Gouda!
