What's the name of the bridge in the centre of Haarlem ( The Netherlands. ) that painters can relate to? ( Hint: It's a trick Question... )
New Question: There’s a building in one of Holland’s big city’s which has the following cryptic description: You can use the name of the building to write a letter ( With the correct 'pen'.. ) and use the look of the building in a Sci Fi movie. What's the Dutch name of this building?

Uh...the bridge doesn't have a name?
Oh no, it most definitely has a name.

The Langebrug. It's because it looks like a paint roller.

"Oh and I need the dutch name for it... ;-)" ( And if that's the name for it in Dutch, no that's not correct. )
Okay, the locals call it "de verfroller".
De Langebrug ("the Long Bridge") is the newest bridge in the city. A few years ago it replaced the old bridge on the same spot because the old one almost fell apart. The bottom side of the bridge is painted by an artist coming from the city of Mutare (Zimbabwe). Mutare and Haarlem keep up a city bond program. Local people usually call the bridge "De Verfroller" ("The Paintroller") because of the odd shape of the counterweight.

Gravestenenbrug?
I couldn't figure out if that's a generic name for drawbridges or the actual name of that one due to my bad googling skills and lack of foreign language knowledge
