Your Wedding in the Perfect Ambience
Are you looking for an amazing location for the most beautiful day in your life? The Austrian National Library’s various venues in the heart of Vienna offer a wealth of possibilities to turn your wedding day into something really very special and leave a lasting impression.
Whether civil wedding ceremony, agape feast, or wedding banquet, obtain competent advice from the Austrian National Library’s event team. We can help you plan your individual celebration, depending on the size of the wedding party.
Take a look around and be inspired! A civil wedding ceremony surrounded by books in the State Hall or Augustinian Reading Room, followed by an agape reception in the Van Swieten Room and a banquet in the Oratory, or a wedding celebration in the classic and festive bel étage of the Palais Mollard: you will certainly find the perfect framework.
Before you withdraw to have your wedding pictures taken, you can surprise your guests with a tour of one of the Austrian National Library’s museums so that they will be entertained while you smile for the camera.
Your benefits when booking a venue at the Austrian National Library:
• Excellent public transport connections
• Underground parking in the immediate vicinity
• Free choice of catering
• No restrictions as to technical equipment and decoration
• Easily accessible for deliveries
• Cultural diversity for your guests
Tie the knot for eternity
As an additional highlight to mark your special day, you can tie the knot for eternity as a bridal couple through a work conserved at the Austrian National Library by becoming a book sponsor. Together we will select a suitable object from our holdings, such as a special book, a map of the country where you first travelled together, a papyrus or musical autograph reminding you of a particular moment: there are no limits to ideas.
You will receive a certificate of honour confirming your sponsorship, and a personal bookplate with your names will be inserted in the chosen object — for all times. By becoming a book sponsor, you also contribute to the restoration and conservation of more then twelve million objects conserved at the Austrian National Library.
As you make a one-time donation (starting at 1,000 euros for individual research), your sponsorship will last forever. This could probably be put on your wedding list, or you can make a gift to yourselves.
A magnificent marriage proposal
Book a private tour of the State Hall and ask the big question in the ambience of the former court library, amidst some 200,000 books dating from the years 1501 to 1850—and nothing will be in the way of ‘Yes’. Raise your champagne glasses high up on the gallery afterwards and enjoy the experience together.
