    Yes, Yves. I thought that would last a bit longer, but you have it, spot on.
    Over to you.

        129 Rue Servient, 69003 Lyon. is this the address of the Radisson hotel?

      I think so Ralf.Spot on.

      RB is located in the unique tower in Lyon,known as "le crayon (the pencil)" due to its shape.

      Very near,you can find the halles Paul Bocuse,the 3 stars master chief.
      Over to you.

          While waiting for Ralf - I "hijack" this thread like a true pirate with a simple question: where in the world?

            According to the steady flow of the traffic, I'd say NORTH Korea.

          Yves, you are right, it is the pyramid-shaped Ryugyong Hotel in Pyongyang. It is in the build since 1987 and still not finished. Kempinski plans of finishing and opening this monster were halted 2013 because of the unclear economic situation in North Korea.

                No, but a good guess. There are indeed similarities.

                Good guess, but it is in another National Park.

              Lake District National Park,Cumbria?

                No, also not in the Lake District. It is a viewpoit and the name of the viewpoint will be the solution.

              In the Yorkshire Dales National Park there are formations similar to those in the puzzle. But the website is hopeless to navigate in, so this is only my guess.

                I am sorry, but Yorkshire Dales National park is not correct. But you are coming closer now. The viewpoint is called by a famous author to be the most beautiful in England.

              No new guess? Doesn't this clue help?

                I think that the problem is that too many English writers described too many English places as having the 'most beautiful view in England'.

                I believe that the most famous one would have been John Ruskin's description of the Lune Valley as being the 'most beautiful view in England' which Turner then painted.

                I don't think this is it - you said it wasn't in the Lakes or the Yorkshire Dales.

                The most obvious thing missing from the view is water!
                Cheers,

                Mark.

                  Ahhh - what about The Moors rather than The Dales, and a rather more recent author - James Herriott described Sutton Banks as the 'finest' view in England.

                  What a difference one word makes in this ridiculous language of my home country!

                    Perfect! Yes, the clue was a bit tricky! But otherwise it would have been too easy. It is the picture of Sutton Bank made by Simon Atkinson.
                    I stumbled upon this while trying to solve another puzzle. A friend of mine heard about a point at the East Coast where you can watch a sunset over the sea! So i was looking for a high point, where you can see the Western coast. But that was not correct in this case. The sea is too far away.
                    So: Bonus point for solving this puzzle also? We found the right place in the meantime.
                    Anyway, over to you, Mark!
