By Mr. Ed VINE VOICE on 20 Aug. 2014
Format: Paperback
I suspect that the time of the analogue travel book is almost at an end. As most people will be painfully aware, the average lonely planet or rough guide tome is a heavy beast, not remotely suited to travelling light. Combined with the fact that the information contained within - phone numbers, prices and dates is liable to change, and thus be incorrect, I am sure that I am not the only person who much prefers actually travelling to a country or city with a digital guide, or access to a service like Trip Advisor on a phone or tablet. Much more portable and current.

In any case, I do enjoy being able to go through a book before leaving, even if I won’t actually carry it with me.

This Lonely Planet Austria is the most up-to-date edition (published May 2014, according to the back of my copy), and therefore the only version worth having. Don’t buy a second-hand previous edition, or you may find things have changed considerably when you arrive in person.

It is a reasonably sized (around 400 pages), with a sturdy outer binding. It contains the usual sections on general information and specific geographic areas, whilst concluding with some pages on history, culture and a ‘survival guide’. The main sections are as follows:

‘Plan Your Trip’ Section including:
Maps
Top Places to Visit
Itineraries
Outdoors
Food/Drink

Regions:
Vienna
Lower Austria & Burgenland
Upper Austria
Styria
The Salzkammergut
Salzburg & Salzburgerland
Carinthia
Tyrol & Voralberg

The geographic sections include mini-maps of urban areas, sights, activities, tours, festivals and events, sleeping, eating, drinking, entertainment and shopping, and are informative, without being long-winded.

Great guide as usual from Lonley Planet, we visited Saltzburg an was useful but only let down where lots of eating places were mentioned but not cross referenced onto the map of the city which let it down as not all the streets were identified on the map, also a street index would be good so then you could at least cross ref this.

By Squirr-El HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on 11 July 2015
Format: Paperback
This 416-page book - the 7th (print) edition of May 2014 - is an interesting and readable guide to the Central European Republic of Austria. This is a well-designed and presented guide, with useful maps. This is not a glossy guide with lots of colour pictures, but it is a well-designed and laid out guide, with colour used sparingly. It is intended to be a helpful guide to things to see and do, and not just a list of things to see and do.

It is broken down into four major sections:

Page 4 - Plan Your Trip:
This section is an introduction to Austria, what to look out for (Austria‘s Top 23), what you need to know in advance, and other touristy stuff.

Page 55 - On the Road (“The Guide”):
P056: Vienna (with a fold-out map inside the back-cover)
P113: Lower Austria & Burgenland
P151: Upper Austria (with 4 sub-sections)
P172: Styria (4)
P198: The Salzkammergut (3)
P216: Salzburg & Salzburgerland (3)
P261: Carinthia (4)
P284: Tyrol & Vorarlberg

Page 341 - Understand:
This section has articles on local culture - history, arts, Alps, etc.

Page 381 - Survival Guide:
A-Z Directory, transport, etc.
P401: Language
P408: Index

It's informative if you like heavy reading, or want to travel town to town, but Austria is a land of beauty and stunning scenery for road trips. There are not nearly enough photos in this book unfortunately to make this worthy of planning a proper road trip in Austria. If this is your thing, you would be far better off sticking with a DK guide instead.
