The imperial court library became the Austrian National Library in 1920. The Prunksaal is the showpiece of the structure and the finest Baroque library in Europe. Paired marble columns frame the main room and bookcases line the walls. The collections consist of volumes from Prince Eugene's library, acquired during the early 18th century, and books removed from monastic libraries during the religious reforms of the later 1700s.
