    City Hall tower interior

    The City Hall dates from 1963 and has Italian and Scandinavian influences. Rumour says that the tower is build at the wrong side of the building, because the blueprints layed upside down at the construction.

    The inside of the tower is painted by artist Piet Verberne with characters from local stories.

    Enschedesestraat

    Next view is towards the city of Enschede.

    Closeby you see the City Hall square and the Lambertus church (one of the few old buildings in the city not destroyed by the WWII bombings).

    Farther away you see the new parking garage and the construction works for the new library.

    At the horizon you see some buildings of the Twente Technical University.

    Thiemsbrug

    From the platform underneath the carillion bells you have a wonderful view over the city (and an occasional ringing on top!)

    I guide you clockwards and start with the main Hengelo crossing: Thiemsbrug.

    Buzzing around is fun!

    Here we are over the Power Plant of Nijmegen. The stack is 550 feet high,so top of the clouds is 500 feet. I used this picture also as a X-Mas card.
