Publisher's Summary

Historical and cultural walking tours of Europe's finest cities...

We start by the celebrated Opera House and the Sacher Hotel, home of the even more celebrated Sachertorte chocolate cake. Then we'll lead you past some of Vienna's most remarkable and beautiful churches.

We'll show you where Mozart wrote The Magic Flute and explain why it possibly cost him his life. You'll visit the grand cathedral, the Stephansdom, and learn the meaning of the mysterious "05" that is carved into its walls.

As we guide you through the picturesque winding streets of the old town, we'll tell the story of the tragic Mayerling affair and show you how to find the Roman ruins in Vienna's oldest square, the Hoher Market.

We'll explain what schmah is and take you to the Judensplatz, where you'll hear about the moving but controversial new monument to Vienna's Holocaust victims, before we show you the world's most luxurious fire station.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

    "Short guide to the basics of Vienna"
    What did you love best about Vienna - The Medieval City?

    I liked the format, which was to walk the listener to a location and then pause to give us a chance to explore it at length. I also liked hearing the stories behind the people and places.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Vienna - The Medieval City?

    I was interested to hear another hypothesis pertaining to Mozart's untimely death (that it might have been freemason revenge).


    What does Simon Harry Brooke bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He has a very pleasant delivery and a good storytelling manner. He also has a lovely British accent that I wouldn't hear if I were reading the book.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, it's not that kind of book. You listen to it as you walk and, whether you do the whole tour in one day or space it out is a matter of individual preference. I did it both ways because I wanted to hear parts again.


    Any additional comments?

    Reference is made more than once to a printed guide. The only pdf document I can find on Audible is the tour script - no guide. The script says, for example, "The detailed instructions showing how to use this tour are in your Printed Guide along with lots of information about museums, galleries, shops and restaurants." The guide would be really useful. Its absence is why I gave the book an overall 4 stars instead of 5.
