  • It is a modern building with a height and can be found from various places from its characteristics and height. It is a little far from the center of the town, but it is maintained neatly.

  • New office tower of the European Central Bank located directly on the river and therefore particularly spectacular to see from the boat.

  • It is not appropriate to comment about this as a place to go to as this is not a tourist attraction; it is the EU's central bank and, in that capacity, is doing a very good job of keeping the EU economy on track. It is as very nice building to look at, but you won't be allowed inside unless you have business there
