On our tour of Europe this year, we have seen some magnificent libraries. We have been taken back by several of these historical libraries. For most of us, we will never get the opportunity to see libraries, unless in the United States you visit the Library of Congress, Pierpont Morgan Library, Capitol Library in Des Moines you’ve never seen a library like this. The Hapsburg’s collected 200,000 volumes over hundreds of years and built his library to store and display them. The interior is domed, fully painted, with columns, ancient globes, and of course lots of old historical books which are still used. Vienna again put this on your list most memorable things you need to see on your trip to Vienna. Over time history many government have tried the control of person’s thoughts by burning books and limiting the expansion of their mind. Being literate opens whole new world.
We highly recommend it. It also has Austrian history displayed throughout which was very informative and interesting. If you are in Vienna go see this!
