Top Ten Tuesday - European Library Wish List


This is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. They feature a different top ten list every week. For this week's topic, I will list the top ten libraries of the world that I would love to visit. These are all on my bucket list!

1. Admont Abbey Library in Admont, Austria
2. Old Library in Trinity College, Dublin
3. Austrian National Library in Hofburg Palace, Vienna (I have been to Vienna once, but was not able to make it to the palace. Planning another trip to Vienna next year and this one will be on the itinerary for sure!)
4. Baroque Library Hall in Clementinum, Prague (planning a trip to Prague for Thanksgiving . . . this is going on the itinerary!)
5. Royal Danish Library, Copenhagen
6.  Rijkmuseum Library, Amsterdam
7. Strahov Monastery Library, Prague
8. Abbey Library of Saint Gall, Switzerland
9. Bodleian Library, Oxford
10. France National Library, Paris

Is there a library on this list that you have seen? Which one would you most want to visit?

  3. Wow, you have some gorgeous libraries on your list this week. I think my favourite is the France National Library, Paris. I'm actually travelling to Copenhagen in November, so maybe I might get the chance to see the Royal Danish Library! :)

  4. These are all pretty much amazing! I've never been in a library even close to being as impressive as any of these.

    1. Thanks Nicole! Yeah, as great as libraries are in the States (because of all the books they contain), they are not nearly this elaborate.

  5. I lived in Vienna (my son was born there, actually), so I did see no. 2. I also saw nr. 9. we went to Oxford often (Hubs went there), and visited pretty much every college, lol. We stuck a Merton poster over our son's crib when he was 2! (No pressure, of course...) Another awesome list!

  13. These. Are. GORGEOUS. My goodness. I NEED to go to the Admont Abbey one- holy beautiful, that one is just... wow. I am also SUPER mad that I missed that library in Copenhagen when I was there too. Plus, it was raining, that would have been perfect! Sadness. I hope you get to go to ALL of these, and take lots of pictures for us :D
