If you love books, these places will blow your mind…

Die würde ich gerne alle einmal besuchen .

Austrian National Library | Vienna, Austria (oh no they did not put a hidden door in their library!)

This would be an ideal prison. I wonder if they have a good library at the state penitentiary. My brother-in-law once built a library like this with a pool table in the middle. It was really fun. Too bad they moved.
