The guide takes a detailed look at Viennaandrsquo;s fascinating history, literature, and cultural life with expert background on everything from the magnificent Habsburg palaces to the cutting-edge galleries of the MuseumsQuartier. There are plenty of practical tips on all the best accommodation, transportation and restaurants plus lively reviews of hundreds of shops, bars and clubs.
