About the Author

Veteran travel writers Darwin Porter and Danforth Prince have written numerous best-selling Frommers guides, notably to Germany, France, Italy, England, and Spain. Porter was bureau chief for the Miami Herald when he was 21. Prince, who began writing with Porter in 1982, worked for the Paris bureau of the New York Times. Together, they wrote and researched the first-ever Frommers guide to Austria. As frequent travelers to this alpine country, they know their destination well. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Good info July 4 2007
By Sue B. - Published on
Format: Paperback
Should have spent more time reading the book before the trip. Some helpful preparation tips. Had some great info and descriptions. The book is separated into geographic regions. If you are headed to a small town (as we were) it is more difficult to figure out which part of the book to refer to. Great for bigger cities and tourist destinations.

As for the other locations, the Frommer's Austria is an excellent guide for a traveller. It is candid, helpful, and informative. I especially appreciated the descriptions of the attractions in Vienna.

Excellent information on summer activities re:opera Feb. 15 1999
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
My daughter will be in Gratz,Austria for 6 weeks this summer at the AIMS School for opera. Since I will be visiting I decided to buy your guide to Austria. It has everything you could want to know and more. We lived in Europe for 3 years and it is exciting to go back.The "getting around" section is great as is the information on Music (Mozart etc). I was really excited about the summer music festival in Salzburg. I bought your book on Panama when I visited and it certainly made for a much easier and more interesting trip with your guide. The AIMS school is something your future readers may be interested in-it is a summer program for singers on the road to a career and they have programs on weekends throughout summer. Thank you.

Don't waste your money Feb. 27 2005
By J. Cress - Published on
Format: Paperback
This was one of the worst travel guides I have ever purchases. I though so much of this book I placed it where it belongs, in the trash can. If you want a real travel guide purchase DK eyewitness travel guides.
