Nieuwmarkt Square (De Waag)
Building in Amsterdam, Netherlands
The lively nightspot and market square Nieuwmarkt, found in the old city centre just east of the Red Light District, has been a centre for commerce and socialising in Amsterdam since the 17th century.
Dominating the square is the picturesque and stately building, de Waag, which means the Weigh House. This was originally St. Anthony's Gate, and was a major entry point to the city before the old city walls were torn down.
