Public Library

A new public library was opened in May 2005 in Vienna. This is more exciting than it sounds: the building features spectacular modern architecture which restructures central Urban Lorentz square to best effects. One side of the roof is covered with massive stairs which invite to linger and offer access to the top of the building and impressive views of Vienna!
At the top, you can enjoy your coffee, a light lunch or some other beverage. You can see Kahlenberg or turn round and have a look at the urban views that present themselves to you!

It is possible to walk into the library to browse the book without getting a library pass. Only if you want to take books or other media home, you need to register.
