Tintenpalast (Ink Palace)

From www.namibia-travel.net:

The government resides in the so-called "Tintenpalast" ("Ink Palace") in the centre of Namibia's capital Windhoek. This building, in its original form, stems from the phase of German colonialism and was inaugurated in the year 1913. The general public became upset over the unsuitable geographical position of the building high up on a hill. It was said that the government wanted to be safe from the public, and a suggestion was made to build a cable car. The people called the building "Tintenpalast", an allusion to the activities of the numerous officials and clerks who were employed in the administration. The name is still in use.
