Österreichische Nationalbibliothek - Austrian National Library, Vienna: 22 reviews and 45 photos
I love the sight of books, the smell of books and well, I read them too.
If you happen to be in Vienna and it gets bitter cold - hide - seek comfort in the Austrian National Library. I've just done that. Well, in summer, I find other excuses to get there.
The State Hall of the Austrian National Library is said to be one of the most beautiful historical libraries in the world. You should see the frescos on the ceiling which were completed in 1730 by Daniel Gran.
About 200,000 books which have been printed between 1501 to 1850 are found in the State Hall.
Entrance to the Prunksaal is Euro 7.
Address: Oesterreichische Nationalbibliothek, Josefsplatz 1
Directions: It's next to Michaelerplatz. It's at the very center of Vienna. You won't miss it. Ask any Viennesse. Everybody knows where the national library is :D
