A European Building in 1962 -- possibly in Denmark -- seeking help identifying it

Greetings,

Here is an image of a building taken from a scan I recently made from a 35mm slide. The slide was taken in Europe in October or November 1962, I think in Denmark, but I'm not positive of that. It could be France or Germany, or somewhere else altogether...

With the flagpoles out front, and sign on top (frustratingly obscured by the angle), it looks like it could be a hotel.



Any help identifying this building, or at least the country that it's in, would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks.

I'm pretty sure this isn't from Denmark...Holland maybe?

The roof shapes are taken from French baroque patterns but since this is a late 19th century "neo" style mix with some renaissance and some baroque elements in it, it can practically be anywhere. Brick plus white stone ornaments is traditional for the Netherlands, Belgium, North West Germany but then again, in historism anything goes (almost) anywhere. It could well be a hotel, or maybe the town hall of a small town.

Alright, it took a tip from aarhusforever, but with a little help of Google and looking in Holland, I was able to answer my own question.

The building is Kasteel oud Wassenaar in The Hague:
