Safe behind its brick towersDating back to the 15th century, the Waag is one of the oldest secular buildings still standing in the city. It was originally one of Amsterdam’s many gates. But, it has also been a museum, a fire station and an anatomical theatre. You can go there to admire a painting by Rembrandt from 1632 entitled "The Anatomy Lesson" commissioned by the Guild of Surgeons at the time.
My favourite winter hangoutThe walls of the Waag now shelter a café-restaurant where you can go during Amsterdam's chilly winters to eat southern dishes, safe in the towers that even time hasn't changed. It’s my cocooning break on cold days. The terrace is perfect for a café au lait on sunny days. You get the strange feeling that you're protected by a mini-fortress straight out of the Middle Ages. Open every day from 9:00 am to 10:30 pm
I love Amsterdam's open spirit. It's easy to meet people and have rich, interesting conversations. The heart of the city is bubbling over with cultural initiatives, secret restaurants and nature routes that relax you in no time. I want to share it all with you!
