You can count on Rick Steves to tell you what you really need to know when traveling in Vienna.

With this guide, you'll explore elegant Vienna—the epicenter of opera, coffee, Art Nouveau, and waltz music. Meander through Habsburg palaces and nibble a Sacher torte in a velvet-lined café. In the evening, catch a classical concert, or sip wine with the locals in a traditional Heuriger garden. Beyond Vienna, stroll the Baroque street of Salzburg, home to Mozart and The Sound of Music. For a taste of the Alpine living, head to the snowy peaks and green valleys of Tirol.

Rick’s candid, humorous advice will guide you to good-value hotels and restaurants. He’ll help you plan where to go and what to see, depending on the length of your trip. You’ll get up-to-date recommendations about what is worth your time and money. More than just reviews and directions, a Rick Steves guidebook is a tour guide in your pocket.
