Let us introduce you to Vienna, the Lonely Planet way. We'll show you magnificent baroque palaces, but also lead you through the city's most atmospheric hidden alleyways. We'll bring you Mozart in the Staatsoper but also give you the rundown on Viennese electronica, and we'll serve you traditional coffee-house culture but also guide you to vineyard-studded hills where you can drink young wine under the trees.
Whichever Vienna you want, you'll find it in this guide. Get the inside story with our resident author's top tips and favourite places, and interviews with local experts. Choose your poison - Vienna's famed coffee houses, traditional wine taverns and kicking DJ bars are all covered. Get off the beaten track with walking and cycling tours through charming neighbourhoods and out into the Vienna Woods.
Go beyond schnitzel and discover modern Viennese cuisine with our switched-on take on the city's dining scene.
