The best views of Amsterdam are from the top floor of this very modern library. I enjoyed the view and a coffee while sitting on the rooftop deck. Very clean bathrooms and if I could read dutch, would have spent more time but I was there for the view.

This building by dutch architect Jo Coenen is one of the best, if not the best libraries in Holland. I love spending time there from time to time.To really appreciate it you need to spend some time on several floors and don't forget the restaurant on top.

Loved the interior of this big library. Near the central station, with a view over the water and surrounding architecture.

what a fabulous resource for any city to have. a state of the art library in a steel and glass building with spectacular views from the cafe on the top floor. only wish there'd been free wifi...

I just love the library - tons of great and brand new magazines and news papers and free internet if you´re a member. Last time, I did not bring my laptop - as it was pooring with rain... and was somewhat disappointed that so many of the available computers were out of order.
