5.0 out of 5 stars All you need for travel around Western Europe 9 Dec 2003
I went Inter-Railing around Europe this summer and this book was my Bible, I don't know what I would have done without it. Apart from giving me information about places I knew I wanted to see it also gave took me to places I never would have thought of going and really hightened my enjoyment. The accomodation and clubbing reccomendations were spot on and I usually ended up in a cool place. The fact that it has reccomendations from ordinary readers means it's got a lot more relevant than some others. Again a truly awesome book that has pride of place on my shelf

3.0 out of 5 stars Western Europe - in brief! 6 July 2009
Good basic summary but you still need a more detailed travel guide if you're planning on spending any time at all in one location. Also, book very heavy so not good for carrying round with you.

Useful hints and tips though and would recommend if you are going on a whistle-stop tour.

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't go wrong with Lonely Planet! 22 May 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
We are on a 2 year working holiday term in London and have been travelling all across Europe. Based on the travel guidebooks we have used, we definitely prefer Lonely Planet out of the rest. If you are doing a backpacking trip across Western Europe and you prefer to carry one travel guidebook, this book is highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Lonely Planet's usual excellent overview 2 Aug 2011
By Tavia
Lots of detail, great maps, all the information you want. Best twinned with a Rick Steve's Guide for more fleshing out of key places and tips.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not the best 19 May 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Not the best book we could have got it would appear. A lot of information but much of it of little use to the traveller trying to fit attractions into a route. Quite complicated to follow and a mine of information which is going to be of no use unless you intend staying a lengthy period in each place.
