Heh, that's what I thought, too -- no idea what/where it is, though, although I suspect it's one of those concrete atrocities that DB eulogised in a thread a few months ago.
There's nothing atrocious about this landmark, I can assure you.

Midnight in Switzerland?
That'll do! I'd have accepted any town/city name with "at night" appended -- except maybe Zürich, and Lugano (sometimes).

Back to the proper competition, now ...

Tough one, since I can't open and enlarge the photo. Guessing the one in front is a Münster of some description ... I know not which nor where ... By the sunlight, I'd guess a Ticinese location?

You shouldn't need to enlarge it. There are clues in the picture.
You are miles off so far.

It is a tough one! I'm still thinking about the previous one which DB and Deep Purple both posted.

You really ought to give DB a call and tell him about it ... I just know he'd be thrilled to hear what he's missing.

Name that building.

Clue (if the background doesn't give it away): I'm cheating with this one.
