“Nice museum to visit, also with kids. The witches scales. The scales are in the public weigh house, a Renaissance building with a stepped gable and brick mosaic tympanums. In the 16C, women suspected of witchcraft were brought here from afar to be weighed in the presence of the bourgmestre: if their weight was not too low in relation to their height, it was calculated that they could not sit astride a broomstick and they were acquitted... the last acquittal certificate dates from 1729! The storehouse now contains a museum on the history of witchcraft.”
“Oudewater is famous for the Heksenwaag (Witches' scales). This Weighing house, became famous because people accused of witchcraft were offered an honest chance of proving their innocence. ”
