Nieuwmarkt

Nieuwmarkt

This large square is one of the oldest parts of Amsterdam. It’s overlooked by an attractive looking castle complete with gates and turrets known as De Waag. Although located in the middle of the Red Light District, it has a more relaxed vibe than other central parts of the city. Nieuwmarkt has everything from funky bars and cafes to Buddhist temples and even – unusually for this area – a convent.

The Waag ("weigh house") is a 15th-century building on Nieuwmarkt square in Amsterdam. It was originally a city gate and part of the walls of Amsterdam. The building has also served as a guildhall, museum, fire station and anatomical theatre, among others.   The Waag is the oldest remaining non-religious building in Amsterdam. (Built in 1488!!!)
