Destination Libraries: Admont Abbey Library

This fall, I’m planning a solo backpacking trip to Europe with stops in six countries, six cities to celebrate a couple milestones in my life (hello, 30th birthday!). The trip will start and end in Prague, and will hit Krakow, Budapest, Bratislava, Vienna and Munich. Obviously, because I’m the bookish traveler that I am, I’m researching bookish destinations to visit on my trip. First stop on my list? The library at the Admont Benedictine Monastery in Austria.

So if you hear about someone breaking into song (probably “Be Our Guest” from Beauty and the Beast) in the Abbey library in October, it’s probably me.

Any suggestions for other bookish destinations for me to visit on my grand adventure?
