We would be pleased to organize a tour for you.

In the historical rooms of the library you will find our unique collection of books on the history of technology and the oldest wall paintings of the monastery complex. In the current exhibition we present treasures and rarities from the historical book collections of the Iron Library and explain the background and provenance of certain special books. In addition, you will have the opportunity to learn about the materials used to make our books, as well as gain an insight into the history of the Paradies Monastery and its owner, Georg Fischer Ltd.
