The house with the 99 windows

A photo taken in the city of Zwolle; this is the so-called Hopmanshuis, at the Rodetorenplein. Built in 1663 as a store house it was used as a transition point for goods headed for Amsterdam and Germany. In 1843 it got a new destination and became a guesthouse. A nice detail: because of the many windows the people from Zwolle call it 'The House with the 99 windows'!
