There’s much more to Austria’s capital than Baroque palaces, horse-drawn carriages and the landmark venues where Mozart and Klimt first showcased their masterpieces. This guide will steer you away from the crowded Prater and its ferris wheel (although naturally we’ll make a quick detour past the Vienna State Opera and Schönbrunn Palace) and out to explore the city’s 23 diverse districts. We’ll show you where to shop for shoes and silverware from the most venerable manufacturers and our pick of the coffeehouses for a frothy melange and slice of apfelstrudel. We’ll take you to the most vibrant art galleries and toe-tapping music venues, guide you through the Museumsquartier and to our favourite brutalist buildings and also reveal the best running routes along the Danube.
About The Monocle Travel Guide Series:
Monocle reports from around the globe in print, on radio, and online. As its editors and correspondents dart from city to city, they get to know the best places to rest their heads, stretch their limbs, and kick back with a contact in a hard-to-find cocktail bar. That information is now available in Monocle’s Travel Guide Series: a line-up of titles that speaks to you in an informed but informal way about everything from architecture to art, late-night bars to early-morning markets.
These are books that go beyond the traditional tourist beats to make sure you get the best out of a city—no matter how short your stay. Designed to be compact and collectable, they are also discerning; Monocle’s team won’t list a hundred places to eat but they will tell you where’s best for everything from some tasty fast food to something truly celebratory.
Cities are fun. Let’s explore.

The Monocle Travel Guide Series – London
Vast and sprawling, a tangle of roads and lanes, a muddle of rising and falling neighborhoods: London can be a big beast to tame, even for the people who get to call it home. But this ever-changing and regenerating capital can also charm you with its beauty, from wind-rustled parks to that winding River Thames. […]225 SEK
