The Netherlands’ contribution to the world of architecture is not limited to windmills and canal houses, and Hotel Inntel Zaandam is here to prove it. Designed by renowned Dutch architect Wilfried van Winden and completed in 2010, this colorful hotel is incredibly fun, both inside and out.

Hotel Inntel Zaandam looks like a giant and weird gingerbread house built as Instagram bait, but the intent and meaning behind this amazing building is a lot more thoughtful. Van Winden wanted to create a new structure that was in line with the core identity of the region of Zaan, so he designed a 12-story building that is a combination of nearly 70 traditional Dutch houses piled on top of each other and squeezed together.
