DK Eyewitness Vienna.
Set in the heart of Europe, Vienna is steeped in history and culture. It makes a great holiday or short break destination and is on many people’s travel wish list.
This non-fiction travel guide has the city covered for you with maps of the city quarters, places to visit, what to see, eat and drink, even things off the beaten track and what to do in the ‘great outdoors’; it doesn’t all have to be about the vibrant city centre.
If your trip is only short, the book has various ‘must see’ places highlighted and there are plenty of practical tips on getting around. There’s even ideas for places to visit if you make Vienna your base and you want to travel further afield.
Packed with beautiful coloured photos of Vienna, this was easy to read and it inspired my plans to visit this part of Europe soon. Very good; would recommend this.

A cornucopia of culture, Vienna puts art, music and theatre at centre stage.
Whether you want to explore the stunning gardens of Schönbrunn Palace, gaze at Gustav Klimt’s masterpieces at the Belvedere or cycle along the Danube embankment, your DK Eyewitness travel guide makes sure you experience all that Vienna has to offer.
Steeped in imperial splendour, Vienna delights at every turn. From Roman ruins at the foot of the Hofburg to the tallest tower of Gothic Stephansdom, the city’s landmarks are a testament to its rich history. And no list of Vienna’s treasures would be complete without its engaging museums and world-famous classical music.
