5.0 out of 5 stars Knopf' Guide to Vienna - A True Friend to the Traveler 18 Sep 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
A short while back my wife and I treated ourselves to ten days in Vienna. We chose as our guide the Knopf Guide to Vienna. We found the guide to be complete and accurate in every way. We roamed the streets of Vienna with total confidence because of this publication. The guide's maps were accurate and incredibly easy to follow. The history of the city was most informative and afforded wonderful information for the self-guided tourist. We are planning another trip abroad and will again use one of the Knopf guides. I have used other guides in the past but find the Knopf guide to be far and above those other publications.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Guidebook for when you return 25 Dec 2006
By Lynn Hoffman, author:Radiation Days: A Comedy - Published on Amazon.com
I am a frequent visitor to Vienna. While I'm there, I
use a guidebook that focuses on food and drink, a city
map and one of the weekly papers (Der Falter). But when
I return, I enjoy the rumination and reminiscence of
this book.
I'm particularly pleased that it incorporates information
about the natural setting of the city and I find the cultural
information to be useful if brief. A great book for reminiscence.

--Lynn Hoffman, author of THE NEW SHORT COURSE IN WINE and
the forthcoming novel bang BANG from Kunati Books.ISBN 9781601640005

2.0 out of 5 stars Pretty but hard to use 27 May 2003
By David Weinberger - Published on Amazon.com
This is perhaps the worst-arranged guidebook I've encountered. It skips baseline information in preference for beautiful illustrations. There are many nuggets of information about the city's history and culture - including 11 pages on its birds and squirrels - but you're left not knowing that the city is divided into numbered districts, that you have to get your subway tickets time-stamped, and how to tip. Impractical, frustrating and not worth the room in your suitcase.
