I'm already a Lonely Planet fan having used the Walking Spain book on 2 trips to N Spain and my son sent me LP Austia for Christmas in an effort to get me to visit him there. Apart from being a good general basic guide with good little maps, its a good read with all the bits of history,background and cameos etc. I tried a lot of the recommended stuff including YOHO. and most of the info. was spot on apart from a couple of budget places to eat which were not. and some of the Bus numbers had changed or were wrong.
Otherwise an excellent book, fits in your pocket so don't go without it.

Kindle edition is poor, I had expected much better. Guide is poorly formatted, no index. Images are low resolution, maps & scanned pages for mini-phrase section and other parts of the guide to the extent that it's unreadable, zooming in doesn't help.
Not much taken with content, seems to be very superficial. Nothing about the towns & cities: Vienna gets just one kindle page of description! The town maps are split across multiple pages.
Thinking about it - 2 stars is generous.

Good guide giving all the useful information that you would expect from a LP guide book and it gives more information on the smaller cities and towns than other guide books that I have found.

Loads of information well written i will next year move to Austria i also like the german phrases. I have lived and worked in Germany for 10 years so i am fluent in german the german phrases will be of great value to people that cant speak german..

I bought this as we are moving to Vienna - it is a great guide book! The new edition is even better with loads of information about best spots for outdoor, cycling, skiing! It does not tell you though that coffee in Vienna is VERY expensive no matter which area you go! Would def recommend it

This book is quite hard core and I was disappointed at first. However, when you begin to delve, it is a wealth of information and stories and history. Very well researched. A great companion to the DK guide to Austria which is more pictures.

This book arrived on time and in excellent condition - very pleased with it. It's been most helpful in helping me to organise my forthcoming trip to Austria. It's also the latest version which is what I was looking for - many thanks :)
