As the title suggests this is a compact, pocket sized guide to Vienna with handy fold out map.

The map is inside the back cover and contains a selected street index as well as a transport map and there is a more detailed map of very centre of Vienna. Unfold this for a more detailed map of Vienna. There is a 'Highlights' page at the front with page references and a sentence of description for each place. Handy for those not knowing where to start.

The pocket guide breaks the city down into six areas - Stephansdom Quarter, Hofburg Quarter, Schottenring and Alsergrund, Museum and Townhall Quarter, Opera and Naschmarkt and Belvedere Quarter. Key places and items of interest are briefly described (this is only a pocket guide so for more than that a full guide might be better) and there are lovely picture drawings of places with items of interest labelled. At the end of each section there is a 'Streetlife' box containing restaurant, bar, coffee house and shopping information.

There is a sixth section entitled 'Further Afield' which suggests some sights outside the city, some of which are reachable by public transport. There are also some ideas for day trips highlighted, as well as notes on getting around and a brief survival guide.

I found this a very handy, compact, sturdy travel guide.

This guide helped me a lot on my trip! It has clear maps and descriptions of the most important spots. Perfect if you don't have a lot of stuff with you (I travelled with a backpack), and if you are planning on staying just a couple of days. It gives you a very good idea of the city!

I bought this product because I wanted a map of Vienna (note the word map comes before guide implying significance.) The map is tiny and just stuck into the back of the guide. It even has a train station on it that closed in 2009.

small enough for to fit in your pocket and good enough for a very short stay. If you are staying longer than overnight then perhaps you need a better guide but it suited my needs and included a good set of maps.

Great little book for short stay visits to Vienna - with essential pull-out map. Various categories of the different districts for easy planning of your day. Highly recommended

Good for a three day stay although there isn't much historical background - you would need a more comprehensive guide for that and if you wanted to spend more time there

Very handy size to carry around in your bag or pocket when walking around a city. It arrived two days later than the stated date but that wasn't a problem for us.

This is a good accompanyment for a tourist in Vienna. Good map and a useful list of sites to see and places to go, and how to get there.

Small size is good for carrying round but means information very limited-needed to supplement from internet Maps most useful item
