The State Hall of the Austrian National Library – the former Imperial Court Library – is considered the most beautiful library hall in the world. Built from 1723 to 1726 at the time of Emperor Karl VI, today it is known as a Gesamtkunstwerk in baroque style. The architects were Fischer von Erlach father and his son. The marvellous frescos were painted by Daniel Gran. Approximately 200,000 books are kept in the State Hall, including the private library of Prince Eugene.
