The success of your school trip is important to us

Discover the Austrian National Library and its five museums together with your school class. Draw from the range of age-appropriate guided tours. Arrange either a regular 45-minute tour or choose the extended 90-minute tour, for instance by combining a visit to the Baroque State Hall at Josefsplatz with the service facility of the Library at Heldenplatz.

We offer guided tours on six different themes for school classes from grade 5 upwards. The content and teaching methods are always adapted to suit the lives and interests of the young people. There is a new educational offering for primary schools – “Crafting Language in the Literature Museum” from grade 3 already.
