This symmetrical, nine-storey 'tower of knowledge' (its self-appointed nickname) is the country's largest library. Unveiled in 2007, it has claimed a commanding spot in Amsterdam's increasingly modern landscape. Inviting chairs and couches are scattered around every floor, as are loads of free internet terminals (there's also free wi-fi). Panoramic city views unfold from the top-floor cafe.
