Book Mountain Library in Netherlands

Maybe hitting up the local library doesn’t top the list of “must see” attractions when travelling the world. We can certainly relate to that, but Book Mountain is not a destination to be missed when visiting Spijkenisse in the Netherlands.

While we call it Book Mountain, the natives know it as Boekenberg Bibliotheek Spijkenisse, and this thing is far from your typical library. Sure it’s filled with thousands of great books, but it’s the architecture that will leave your jaw on the floor. Designed by the Rotterdam based design team at MVRDV, this mountain of books is built within a glass pyramid, and features a 480 meter path circling the peak along with a cafe offering stunning views. Even if you’re not an avid reader, this is definitely a place worth seeing. [via Inthralld]
