    What you'll do

    Discover outstanding texts and objects from Austria's literary history at this fascinating museum.

    Visit the Literature Museum of the Austrian National Library with Go City®

    • With us, there are no entry fees on the day - all you've got to do is show your pass.
    • See letters, manuscripts and more from some of Austria's most famous authors. 

    Please note: exhibitions are in German. You will be able to access key information in English with a museum tablet.

    Embark on a journey into the unknown and unexpected, and experience how literature opens up new horizons as you stroll through permanent and special exhibitions offering a multi-layered and frank picture of Austrian literature.

      Original manuscripts, historic texts and modern audiovisuals will allow you to explore the history of Austrian literature. The collection spans three floors, two of which are the permanent exhibition, whilst the other hosts temporary exhibits. From first editions to curiosities that previously belonged to the authors, this museum is a celebration of Austrian literature and the themes it has explored since the 18th century.

      The building itself is also a historical site: the Royal and Imperial Court Chamber archive created in the 16th century was moved here during the 1848 revolution. Today, it stands as a fine example of Biedermeier architecture and has heritage status.
