Monocle’s travel guide to Vienna will steer you away from the crowded Prater and its ferris wheel – although naturally they’ll make a quick detour past the Vienna State Opera and Schönbrunn Palace – and out to explore the city’s 23 diverse districts. They’ll introduce you to the most vibrant art galleries and toe-tapping music venues, guide you through the Museumsquartier and celebrate their favourite brutalist buildings. Vienna has long been the melting pot of Europe so it’s easy to feel at home here – especially with this fully illustrated, 148-page hardback book as your guide.
The Monocle Travel Guide series reveals their favourite spots in each city, from the ideal route for an early-morning run to the best places to lay your head. Full of surprises and quirks, their guides also feature detailed design and architecture pages, neighbourhood walks that take you away from the crowds and their picks for the places to eat and drink.
