Lovers of literature won’t be disappointed by the ‘Bibliotheks’ of Vienna. Its libraries reflect a city that is fond and proud of its cultural heritage, with many holding impressive compilations of historical works. Admire the largest collection of books in Austria in the aisles of the University Library or settle down with a book and look out to the hills from the Hauptbücherei am Gürtel.
Hidden away at the end of a long corridor inside the Akademie of fine Arts, this library could be one of the most atmospheric rooms in Vienna. Creaky wooden floors and the smell of well-thumbed books make this an easy setting to settle down to some work. The bookshelves are so perfect in appearance, it is tempting to pick one of the finely preserved volumes to inspect if it is real. Sections of the library are open to members of the public, who can enjoy the serenity and stillness of this finely preserved space.
