There was the Utrecht tram attack last winter, though it was small-scale. And authorities said last year that people arrested in Arnhem were planning a major terrorist attack. So perhaps there's some...

This reflects my experience. Most recently, in Germany this spring, several cafes did not accept credit cards for small amounts. If I'd been caught cashless and unaware, I rather doubt that the wait...

And tangentially, the building is noteworthy(?) as a prototypical work of Nazi architecture. If you're interested in medieval to 19th-century stuff, about a block away is the Bayerisches...
