This place is just great. The rooftop garden is amazing. Wonderful city panorama to be enjoyed amidst green and nature. Its a must on sunny day.

A couple of people advised we should visit for the views. There is very little see, a glimpse of the castle still best. It was all grass when we visited, maybe it's nicer when there has been some planting. It's very hot and no shade.

Lovely place to hang out and relax! Take the time to explore the roof top - it is bigger than you think. Unfortunately the stairs going across the big glass roof was closed.

I would admit that the garden built over the library is a very creative concept, I can't say that I would recommend the adventure. Starting with the ground floor and ending on the roof, it is well done, offers some views, but over it is...More

One of the first aspects that struck us was the marvellous sweep of the facade, adorned with bas reliefs of human knowledge. Represented are music, science and numerous language alphabets. A wonderful sweeping and curvilinear facade results and is to be admired. The interior is...More
