As you figured out, it's the old Naval Basin in Algiers. That amazing lighthouse was apparently built in 1544.

Yes, Rotterdam. The first shot was taken from the Eurotower, quite the view. Most of those freighter/barges have their bridges on hydraulics.. they raise them for visibility over containers on deck, but can lower them to get under the fixed bridges... Busy place..
That one was easy for an architect. That Bridge was obviously a Calatrava's work. If you don't know Calatrava have a look at google, it deserves the detour.

Give me an hour for the next guess.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Well, as you say, a monstrosity

This one should be very easy. That is a very famous place particularly in what regards sailboats. Also a port. Sorry about the pictures quality. Taken with the phone







Great bear, locally made, I mean on the place:



This is the most famous brewery. Not a luxury place, it is just like that, old and cozy. Take a look at the table on the beer shoot. Real old wood, old like their tradition many centuries tradition in beer.

A port, perhaps.... but not a coastal one methinks....

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Interesting. The barge looks like itís flying the Dutch flag but the flag in the foreground looks like the Swiss flag. But it feels familiar like Holland or Germany. I wish I could read the writing

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

It is on a big river and on one of its tributary, near the sea, is situated a big Port.

Yes, it is Holland..... or Germany and the biggest clue is: It is a very famous place in what regards boats and particularly sailboats. I went there many times, for the boats.... and the beer
