    De Waag has always been an important icon of the city. The building played an important role in the commercial life of the city. Merchants had to have their goods weighed here. Since 1915 it has been a special museum full of old treasures. Today you can also go here for exhibitions.

    De Waag in Deventer:
    Before the dissemination of supra-regional uniform measures, weights could vary from city to city. In order to prevent fraud, since the Middle Ages merchants in various cities have been obliged to have the weight of their merchandise recorded in the scales established by the city authorities.

    Probably one of the most beautiful historical buildings from the 16th century in Deventer. The museum can be visited every Sunday at 2 p.m. with a free tour (museumdewaag.nl).
