Overview

From Vienna's old town to the outer districts, from the city's charming, eclectic neighborhoods to Danube Island, National Geographic Traveler: Vienna guides you to the better- and lesser-known sights of one of Europe's most popular cities. In between, you'll discover the cultural and natural treasures Vienna has to offer--including its palaces and architectural gems, local markets and events, and the beautiful parks and gardens throughout the city.

Among the special features of National Geographic Traveler: Vienna are sidebars detailing experiences throughout the city, to make sure that you get to know the culture, and the people, inside and out. You can learn to make traditional Viennese fare (think schnitzel and apple strudel), for example, sip wine across the Danube in Stammersdorf, and celebrate the holidays with a trip to Vienna's world-famous Christmas markets. Insider tips, in addition, provided by an array of National Geographic experts--photographers, writers, and grantees who have spent significant time in Vienna--direct you to favorite restaurants, festivals, and other information that only locals know.

Guided walks and drives are always a popular feature in our guides, and in National Geographic Traveler: Vienna, these include hiking the Kahlenberg for an unforgettable view of the city, strolling along Vienna's back streets, and walking through the forests and meadows of the Prater.

To top it off, an extensive Travelwise section at the back of the guide provides hand-picked hotels and restaurants, tour recommendations, and a glossary that covers must-know words.
