Lovely interior and the roof terrace offers a nice view (though not as charming as the Teehaus im Weissenburgpark). However, the bar at the top floor doesn't have much to offer, and the toilets at -1 level were downright dirty (several cubicles).

I didn't use it as library, I just wanted to visit it. It's got a very beautiful design and so useful to go through all levels.

They do have English books in different categories; unfortunately not for sale. However, you will find a log of bookstores in Germany. You can easily find the books you want.
