After about six hours of being cooped up in a flying steel container, you’ll step out of Vienna airport and be slapped across the face by Mother Nature. Every cliché in the book seems to fit – fresh, crisp air, long streets lined with blooming flowers and shiny, happy people laughing (okay, they’re not shiny, but they’re definitely happy about something). To find out what’s making them so joyful, you’ll need to visit more than a few tourist spots, drink your bodyweight in coffee at charming cafés, walk along historic streets and feed swans on the beautiful River Danube

There’s much more than chocolate cake and waltzes lurking behind the porticoes of Vienna’s sprawling Baroque palaces and in the mezzanines of its elegant 19th-century apartment houses. Time Out Vienna showcases the city’s heady history and its contemporary sophistication. The city's signature fin-de-siècle architectural marvels are described in depth, as are the splendors of the Danube waterfront. Informed local writers profile the best of the city’s lively restaurant scene, chilled club culture, historic cafés, and restful wine taverns; as well as accommodations for every budget from simple pensiones to historic hotels. With complete coverage of the city’s celebration of the 250th anniversary of Mozart’s birth in 2006, this edition also contains updated maps and rechecked listings, along with new sidebars, photographs, and a culture chapter for context.

Good all-around guide, but the Michelin Green Guide to Vienna is more comprehensive (although without the hotel, restaurant and shopping listings). This one is a good one volume all-round guide, but it has stupid mistakes such as saying that Vienna's largest cemetary is the Karl-Marx-Hof (it's the Zentralfriedhof). The blue pages with practical advice are excellent as are the maps. Sometimes the tone is a bit snide which is more than a little off-putting.

Enter at your own risk.

A good overview of the city made attractive by its compact size. However, it is full of historical and cultural inaccuracies: misunderstandings, false assumptions, half-truths, and outright falsehoods. All written in the pompous, judgmental, condescending style that often mars travel books written by the British.
