Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I have not always been too enthusiastic about more recent LP guides, but this looks to be a return to form.

Though not an expert on Germany, I know Berlin pretty well and have stayed in Dresden for a few days and visited some of the Rhine towns: the recommendations for sites, culture etc seem to be pretty good, given that any country guide is going to have to make major compromises due to space. I could quibble with one or two points about Berlin where I might write with a more urgent recommendation: for example, specific Berlin walking tours, a visit to Haus Wansee where Heydrich, Eichmann and others planned the policy and logistics of the 'Final Solution'; or detail like the availability of an excellent English language audio guide voiced by Andrew Sachs, which can be had for free (in temporary exchange for one's passport) at the incredibly interesting Topography of Terror; the northern renaissance paintings by artists like van der Weyden and van Eyck are amongst the chief gems of Berlin's magnificent Gemaldegalerie. But this guide does more than give a heads up for most of the things anyone would choose and provide useful contact details and transport info for them.

The mapping is an improvement on the house style of some years ago and the addition of more colour photos makes for an (unnecessary, in my opinion) brighter read, though I must say the choice seems somewhat arbitrary given the number of options available.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This slightly floppy, Chinese printed, soft back book is eight hundred and sixteen pages long with a folded map at the back. Too big for a pocket its probably something use to plan your day then to leave in the hotel. If you do carry it around though its should survive: it's been in my works bag for a few days now and is near pristine.

The first few pages are aimed at inspiration with a selection of pages giving an idea at the breadth of experience available in Germany so if you're not sure, begin at the beginning and it will point you towards the right region and page number for whatever cathedral, town, museum or railway excursion caught your eye. There are some example itineraries and a month-by-month planner that, unhelpfully, doesn't reliably list when in a month an event may fall, but it should be enough to guide your thinking. From there the book moves on to chapters about cities and regions, which takes up the bulk of the book, with the usual lists of things to do and places to stay interspersed with neat little insights, potted histories and explanations which make this better book more useful than randomly trawling the web for similar lists.

The end of the book is concerned with `Understanding Germany,' the `Survival Guide' (important things like what sort of electricity they use and tips on driving,) some German words and phrases and a brilliant index.

There are a few colour sections in the book, mostly in the first fifty pages, but for the most part the book (maps included) is dominated by black and grey text with blue highlighting. Print quality is good though the text is small and the paper nearly see-through so those with poor eyesight may struggle, especially in poor light.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I've only really "dipped" into Germany - a couple of day trips while holidaying in the Alsace region of Eastern France and a drive down through a small portion of south east Germany from Munich into Austria - so clearly no expert on the country!!
However, I'm going for an extensive holiday in the Black Forest/south west area of Germany next year and so thought this Lonely Planet book would be a good addition to my collection for that trip (I already have the Dorling Kindersley book on Germany - don't you just love the pics in them!?)

So, how does the LP one compare and how comprehensive is it if you are trying to maximise your holiday while over there? Firstly I must say that I am impressed with the level of detail you get in this book. OK so it's not small (at over 800 pages) but even then it packs an enormous amount of information in.

The book starts with around 50 pages of introductory stuff - you know the usual info - maps of the whole country, why go, 18 top must-see places to visit, what you need to know, special events throughout the year, outdoor activities, eating and drinking in Germany, travelling in Germany and the regions at a glance.

Then most of the rest of the book is region by region - anywhere between 40 and 80 pages each. Once the general info is out of the way (why come to this region and when is the best time to visit etc) the region is further divided into sub-areas of big towns/cities and areas. Each section is has a wealth of information per sub-region: general info, history, maps, sights, tours, festivals and events, where to eat, where to sleep, prices, entertainment, drinking, shopping, getting around etc. There really is a huge amount of info.
