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.
