I bought this guide as preparation for living in Vienna for 9 months last year, and it was so useful, I must have referred to it almost every day. Detailed and informative entries on all the usual tourist spots in and around the city, as well as some "behind the scenes" places for the tourist who prefers to absorb the culture of the locals. There is also a section on day/weekend trips to surrounding towns and countries, which i used and found to be invaluble. Thank you Lonely Planet for another excellent guide.
