Just okay, not the usual amazing guide from Lonely Planet
on 28 October 2013
I didn't really enjoy the guidebook, even though I'm an avid Lonely Planet guidebook traveler. I didn't find the book to be clear about what sights we should see, it was more focused on atmosphere, which is great, but when I buy a quick guide book I want to know what the top 5 sights are as well as where to take in the atmosphere. We also had trouble with the book in that we really wanted to see the Hundertwasser Haus (very famous piece of architecture in Vienna) and it wasn't on ANY of the maps! It had a very small blurb in the book, then referred to a map which referred to another map. In the end we got lost trying to find it and were very frustrated. I think I would buy the larger book next time instead of the 'Encounter' version because we found this book pretty useless overall. Disappointed.
