    Useful but disappointing

    I have visited Vienna several times before and was looking for something different in a travel guide for this trip. Things I haven’t done or walks I haven’t taken. I decided to try this guide because it was designed as an eBook so it would be convenient to travel with it on my Nook. But the guide is mediocre in terms of organization, navigation and content. Organization: It has a nice table of contents (TOC) with links to the various sections but the “How to Use This Travel Guide” and “Navigation” sections are at the end. They’d be easier to find and more useful at the beginning of the TOC. Navigation itself is often difficult. At the end of many sections, there is only a link to the top of the article you just read. There should also be links to the TOC and Index to make it easy to get to other sections. Content: The maps are nearly useless. For example, the subway (U-Bahn) map was scaled down to fit on a page in portrait mode but it is so small it is illegible. If you rotate the screen to landscape mode, the eastern portion of the map is cut off. Since the map isn’t designed to be enlarged or scroll on demand, it is useless. The Vienna Tourist Board provides good free maps of the city, attractions and transportation. They are available in hotels and the tourist board office as well as online. The guide gives a list of Top 10 sights. What one considers the top 10 sights is a matter of taste so I can understand that I might not agree with their selections. However, the guide is inconsistent because it doesn’t include some of its top 10 sights in a 3 day tour of Vienna but does include other sights not included in their top 10. The 1 – 3 day itineraries are too crowded. You could only do a “drive by” visit to many of the sights if you try to keep up with their schedule. The attractions map has a set of links that are supposed to take you to descriptions of the attraction. Nice feature but all of the links numbered 18 or higher are wrong. They take you to the wrong site. There were definitely things I liked. The descriptions of the attractions are good and include photos, some history and other useful information. There were numerous restaurants listed in districts outside Vienna’s first district (Innere Stadt or Inner City). Austrian cuisine features meat and starchy carbs. This guide showed a variety of types of food including vegetarian restaurants. But, there were numerous omissions of good choices in the first district. I found the same thing with hotels and pensions (bed & breakfast hotels). Overall, I can’t recommend this guide very highly. It’s inexpensive and has some good features and information. But, I think that the shortcomings and errors detract from the good points.
