Amazing library! It's out of a fairytale, Beauty and the beast springs to mind! Informative about the freemasons. Beautiful paintings and the bookshelves are amazing. Loved all of it. Would allow an hour to look around and longer to admire

If you can appreciate beautiful architecture in any way you must visit the library! You will be stunned when you walk through the doors. I have never seen anything like it. The information on Freemasons is very eye opening also. Definitely a must go place...More
One of the most historical libraries in the world with over 200,000 books in the State Hall, the oldest book in this library was in 1368... with all these historical treasures and the very beautiful architecture, no reason not visit it. Highly recommended
Decided this would be my only museum this time in Vienna. Blown away by the beauty of the grand hall. Rates right up there with Dublin.
