Not all libraries double up as tourist attractions but this one definitely does. Centrally located, Openbare Bibliotheek is an ideal place for relaxation for locals and tourists alike. With an area of 28,000 square meters, it enjoys the status of being the largest library in Europe with a collection that spans across many subjects. Each floor of the 9.5-Level library is dedicated to different sections. In addition to books, the library offers free Wi-Fi access for laptops and 500 internet-enabled computers. More than just a library, it is an architectural marvel which makes it a must visit even for non-bibliophiles.
