Book Description

31 Dec 1998 Knopf city guide
These striking new guides to seven major destinations are so appealing that you won't be able to put them down--even after you've stopped traveling. Slender and light, they fit into your purse or pocket. The traveler gets a rich flavor of a city through 600 vibrant color photographs while being guided through the 400 best hotels, restaurants, shops, and cultural sights.

Each guide is divided into nine sections: Everything You Need to Know takes you into a given city and explains local transportation once you are there; Where to Stay lists 80 hotels with a wide range in price; Where to Eat includes everything from diners to four-star restaurants; After Dark shows you the clubs, discos, theaters, and concert halls; What to See guides the traveler from museums to cultural monuments and other places of interest; Further Afield provides 36 excursions just outside the city to historic houses, botanical gardens, zoos, or museums; and Where to Shop features 80 different boutiques, department stores, and markets. At the back are subway and bus routes and 10 double-page spreads of city Maps. Also included is the Business Reference Guide, with information for the business traveler on the city's stock exchange, major banks, business newspapers, television and radio stations, as well as a schedule of conventions.

The Knopf City Guide to BERLIN takes you to the beautiful neoclassical Schauspielhaus, home of the Berlin Symphony: to the former royal palace, Schloss Charlottenburg; to the Bodemuseum, one of Germany's greatest. You can listen to jazz at Quasimodo, and dance at Far Out or E-Werk.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nicely presented 5 July 2011
I hadn't realised before purchase that this was published in 1997, but it hasn't actually affected my view of the guide, which is well-presented, broken down into areas with plenty of photographs and maps. Makes it interesting to compare the thoughts expressed in this guide to those of the up to date ones.

2.0 out of 5 stars better than nothing 22 Mar 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
This guide does not compare well to the other guides that are available. Too bad there is not an Eyewitness guide for Berlin at the moment. You will probable be better off with the Lonely Planet Berlin guide. The maps in the Knopf guide are difficult to use, and the organization is very strange.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good information on Berlin 11 May 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
One of the few guides I've ever seen where the restaurant information (at least on the eastern part of the city) was reliable -- we could trust it and find really good addresses, where there were few foreigners. Yes maps are small, but it's worth squinting!
