The Waag, now a café-restaurant, is a very unusual place in Amsterdam. I like the atmosphere and the architecture. Anyone who likes to eat and drink in an authentic setting will be delighted and enchanted by the place which is full of history and has a unique heritage.

Safe behind its brick towers

Dating 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 hangout

The 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
Romain, 35 ARTISTIC DIRECTOR

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!
