You'll never fall into tourist traps when you travel with Frommer's. It's like having a friend show you around, taking you to the places locals like best. Our expert authors have already gone everywhere you might go--they've done the legwork for you, and they're not afraid to tell it like it is, saving you time and money. No other series offers candid reviews of so many hotels and restaurants in all price ranges. Every Frommer's Travel Guide is up-to-date, with exact prices for everything, dozens of color maps, and exciting coverage of sports, shopping, and nightlife. You'd be lost without us!

City of music, cafes, waltzes, parks, pastries, and baroque architecture, Vienna became a showplace city under the Hapsburgs--and unlike many European capitals, managed to retain its landmarks through two world wars. Frommer's offers detailed, complete coverage of all the highlights. Rely on us for in-depth reviews of attractions and museums, the best accommodations for every taste and budget, the lowdown on the dining and cafe scene, a complete shopper's guide, the best of the performing arts, and more--including side trips to nearby Danube River towns and Lake Neusiedl resorts.

If you're combining your visit to Vienna with a trip to Prague or Budapest (both are just a short train ride away), check out some of Frommer's other helpful guides for your trip, such as Frommer's Prague & the Best of the Czech Republic and Frommer's Budapest & the Best of Hungary. For a book on more of Austria then "just" Vienna and the Danube Valley, see Frommer's Austria.

About the author (2009)

New York City resident Darwin Porter, himself an unrepentant enfant terrible, moved freely, both in New York and in Key West, for many years within the entourages of this lavender trio, with personal, legal, and journalistic links to all three of its members in complicated patterns that evoke a gothic novel. Now he's written a book about it--a publishing event that reveals the competitive frenzy of a bitchy but brilliant trio whose literary legacies changed the cultural landscapes of America forever.
