Vienna in the Encounter Guide Series from Lonely Planet, exploring a range of cities and regions worldwide in a handy, pocket-sized format designed to introduce visitors to the distinctive neighbourhoods of the destination. Frank and informal in style, the guides are renowned for their appeal to independent travellers and are written and researched by local authors. Each guide is organised into 5 distinct sections - Highlights, Diary, Itineraries, Neighbourhoods and Snapshots - recommending a series of essential encounters for visitors to the region.
Each guide opens with a ‘Highlights’ section profiling 10 recommendations by the author and an extensive description of the site or attraction. There is also a yearly diary setting out major festivals and local events. An itineraries section provides inspiration for travellers looking to stay for a certain period of time, in different seasons or exploring the destination for free. The Neighbourhoods chapter is organised in distinct sections and is grouped under the headings, See, Do, Shop, Eat, Drink and Play to introduce visitors to the main attractions. Contact details, addresses, opening times and prices are also given where relevant.
Each guide also has a Snapshots chapter with separate sections for Accommodation, Architecture, Drinking, Food, Shopping, Gay & Lesbian and any specific local experiences or customs. For each, the best places to go are set out in an inset box with references to the specific page in the guide. The Background chapter outlines history, environment and government and politics as well as providing suggestions for further reading. Practical information is also provided in the Directory, giving detailed guidance on transport, business hours, national holidays, internet facilities and basic vocabulary.
