This sky scraper is one of the newest landmarks in Leeuwarden. You can see it from a wide distance. It's very ugly when you're in the Frisian countryside and you see a thing like this on the horizon! It would fit in Rotterdam, but not here...
This is a street at the outside of the city center, close to the parc and the old tower "Oldenhove".
Mind the municipal coat of arms at the corner of the house at the left .
More information will follow asap.
The first stadtholder's court in 1587 consisted of a single house only, but in 1603 a second house was added to the palace. Originally a complex in Renaissance style, the successing stadtholders each had it changed to fit their taste. In 1747 the last stadtholder of Friesland became stadtholder of all the Netherlands and moved to Den Haag, after which his court in Leeuwarden lost in importance. Several different uses resulted in the decay of the palace, and after king Willem I bought it in 1814 architect Stoett renovated it in neo-Classical style. It's now an expensive and luxurious hotel. In front is a statue of one of the stadtholders.
