Next to the Stadhuis building is a smaller Renaissance building, the Old Civil Registry (1537). This was once the Court for 200 years.

At the top of the building there is a bronze statue of Justice with her eyes tied, while on her right and left the statues of Moses and Aaron. Now is the Tourist Information Office.
Very interesting experience. Lots to see Lots to learn.
