    Took me long enough, it's the Koppelpoort in Amersfoort.

    I knew it was somewhere in the Netherlands but it took me about 10 attempts to get it.

    It's Denmark. Kronborg Castle.

    I think so. It reminded me of the postcards my parents sent me from Sweden. Wasn't sure though, so I broadened the search to "scandinavia". And sure enough....

    Edit: this is the one I was thinking of: Kalmar castle in Sweden:

    Kronborg castle, Helsingor it is. Took the ferry to Sweden there, it's the very last thing you see when leaving Denmark on the whopping 20 minute trip to the other side.

    I think I've posted a picture of the Kalmar castle here too, just after I got back from Sweden.
