    The hotel/restaurant in the back is Hotel de Wereld.

    This place is believed to be the venue where NAZI General Baskowitz surrendered his troops to Canadian General Foulkes and Dutch commander and chief prince Bernhard in may 1945, just before Nazi Germany gave up. The city council wrote out a competition for an icon of freedom. The winning idea?, a huge metal penis!.

    The people who live in the vicinity of Hotel de Wereld have protested against it, and now the city is looking for another place to shove it... ehh place it.

    Do you have any big penis-shaped buildings or art-objects in your city?

    So, in its place, I offer up the altogether more phallic Blair-era British landmark known as the:

    I have to put in multiple bids for the Irish as well, though, seeing as I'm unable to resist any article that contains the words: "there is something of a renaissance in phallic gate-posts, at least in the north-east of Ireland":
