    Indeed it's a hard one but if I had put a more characteristic picture of the site it would have been too easy.
    It's not Christiania and for another hint, the site is located near the symbol of Copenhagen...

    I wanted to say it looks some kind of hot springs, and the building remembers me of Tuscany.

    But you should really change the pictures name...

    It is neither Tuscany nor Regensburg.
    EDIT: Hot springs are also incorrect...
