The Austrian National Library
The Austrian National Library, the principal academic institution of its type in the Republic of Austria, is extremely rich in tradition, having a history that dates back to the fourteenth century. With more than 8 million books and objects, the Austrian National Library is the biggest library in Austria. In addition to the more than 3 million books, its international prestige is based particularly on the special departments with their unique objects - manuscripts, incunabula, music autographs, photographs, maps, globes, etc.
The Austrian National Library is also world famous for its four museums, especially for the State Hall. The Baroque State Hall is one of the world's most beautiful historic libraries. Emperor Charles VI (1685/1711 - 1740) ordered the construction of this jewel of secular Baroque architecture for his Court Library. The State Hall was built from 1723 until 1726 according to the plans of the famous court architect Johann Bernhard Fischer von Erlach, and carried out by his son Joseph Emanuel. The ceiling frescoes were completed in 1730 by the court painter Daniel Gran.
The Austrian National Library is within 5 minutes walking distance of the Hofburg Congress Centre.
