Wolfenbüttel's literary treasure

I traveled to Wolfenbüttel recently, a small town not far from Celle. There is a fabulous library there that has one of the largest collections of medieval manuscripts in the world. It has a research room plus a museum in what was probably the library's reading room years ago. They have several books that are over 1,000 years old on display. Amazing really, at top.

The city is home to the largest ducal palace in northern Germany. Very impressive from the exterior, although I chose to tour the library rather than the palace.
