What Odd/Interesting European architectural (or similar) details have you observed?

Jump to last reply

What odd/interesting/unique details have you seen in Europe. [This topic probably has been covered in different threads, but I'm missing Europe and have no trip planned.]

I had a staircase in Haarlem that was only a few degrees from being a vertical ladder. It was that steep.

Of course, there are the the blue flies in the Netherland urinals.

I asked about this previously, but the small indentations near the ground outside doorways in Bruges (for cleaning off shoes/boots).

Not particularly unusual, but the light timers in some small hotels can leave you in a dark hallway.

Not sure why they are like this, but some of the doors in Europe (maybe just france?) have the knob in the center of the door.

Care to share?
