    Cecilia, did you not see my post at #3854?

      Oh just as I was interrupted while answering ombugge, Ivy comes up with the correct answer! Full marks!
      I was in Prague at a conference and had some free time so I thought I'd see if I could find Kafka's grave. What I hadn't realised was that very day was the centenary of Kafka's death! I had just been standing there by the grave which is at the edge of the cemetery.Then along the path in the far distance there was a procession. I stayed for the ceremony, and the photo was taken afterwards.

        Now, where might this be?

            Nope. So there! Years since I was in Den Haag Central, is it really like that?

                Just spent an hour trying to match the colours with the old BR railway regions, then in turn trying to match those results with a suitable terminus. Total waste of time, it got me nowhere. But good fun nevertheless.

                So, would we be right in guessing that this architecture is in fact related to a railway, Ivy? Could just as easily be covering an indoor market somewhere.
                Your charts, your radar, your eyes and ears - if all 4 agree, you may proceed with caution.

                  So glad you're enjoying yourself, Steve.
                  But, yes, it's railway related. And I think the idea of it being an indoor market roof is very attractive. Town planners please note.

                  Later:
                  Actually, Steve, if you were going for colour matching then my photo has a distinct pink colour cast. The reality on the tracery, pillar and boarded roofing is a creamy white if I remember correctly. The red lining is definitely red! Many apologies, though it wouldn't affect your previous searches, I'm sure.

                    At least in the UK, the keen sense of marketing and branding meant that most of the support structures had the name of the railway company cast into them - places like York are an example of that. This one doesn't afford us that luxury!! I'm clueless - as usual.
                    Cheers,

                        You guess? That's a very impressive guess!

                        That's not a guess, Ralf, it's a fact!

                      Not too different from Lau Pa Sat market in Singapore:
                      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Telok_Ayer_Market



                      Yes I know it is not, but just using this opportunity to promoting a Singaporean icon.

                      Unfortunately, if you plan to visit in next few months, it will be under renovation again: http://www.ttgasia.com/article.php?article_id=21647

                      I hope they will follow my advise on how to improve the ventilation this time, not to wast their money on making it all air-conditioned.
                      If they do, they will loose one good customer,

                        Well done, Ralf. Actually, for anyone who followed my "Wherrygirl x 366 - Perhaps", thread, when I joined Jan-Olav, Cecilia and Elizabeth in a marathon photo-a-day-for-a-year lark I gave a view of another part of the station roof. See:

                        So, the baton passes to you, Ralf.

                          This was simple and for sure helpful to use German keywords while searching. This reduced the British train stations to the most popular few. I was lucky that a similar picture popped up at page one then.
                          O.K., it has been a while since my last puzzle, so here is a new one: what place is this?

                            In reference with your previous posts ,could it be a spa in Germany?

                              I am sorry Yves, neither a spa, nor Germany.

                            O.K., i realised that the comment-function is confusing, so there was no new guess up to now. I'll give you a little clue: Not in Germany, but the picture was made last Friday.
