If only our living houses could look a little like this - very impressing and I suppose, totally different to what we are used to when living in a building like this. Trees everywhere, small courtyards, cafes, souvenir shops, restaurants, a design hotel and you...More

Crazy building with many funny artistic installations. Good place to spent some time especially at night. Few restaurants and pubs on site.

We did not have time for a tour, but we saw the building all four sides and found it to be delightful. We also had coffee and snacks in the courtyard, and felt uplifted by the whimsical architecture. Try to visit it if you are...More

The tour was interesting but our tour guide spoke far too quickly. All 5 people in the tour wanted him to slow down so we could understand him. Michael then made fun of the person brave enough to request him to speak more slowly and...More
