Gorgeous library. Wonderful place to stop and stretch your legs as you travel around Austria. A bit off the beaten path to say the least.

The library is a must see and certainly worth paying an extra 5€ to take photographs. Moving from one end of the library to the other takes you through the Bible. The ceilings are beautifully pained the the tile floors make you feel like you...More
