5.0 out of 5 stars Great Guidebook to Salzburg Feb. 4 2012
By Francis G. Lu - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I purchased 4 guidebooks for Salzburg, and this was the most helpful and up to date. Detailed point-to-point itineraries for 1 day, 2 days, and 3 days in Salzburg as well as for specific interests such as Mozart. The shopping guide was most extensive, and the restaurant guide was also helpful. There were many capsule photographs throughout the book, and the bus and street maps were built into the front cover. Finally, a large fold-out map was included in a plastic pouch; it had a street index and specific maps for Old Town and other parts of town.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Guide July 25 2011
By Katherine - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Was in Salzburg for 3 days and found this to be a totally reliable guide, with good info on places to go and eat and - equally important - how to get there and how to prioritize your time. Consequently, I had a fantatic time in Salzburg and had enough activities on my "to do" list that I could have easily spent a full week there.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for day trips in Salzburg, very good for planning your visit Oct. 28 2012
By Linda - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The compact size of this guide made it perfect for carrying along in our backpacks while we biked or walked between the sights in Salzburg (biking is the best way to see the city and surrounding sights). Both maps, the detailed one that lifted out of the guide book and the small map of the downtown area within the front cover, came in handy.

The smaller content of this guidebook was enough to help me decide what we wanted to see over the three days of our visit, but not overwhelming with detail. Descriptions of accommodations, sights, transportation, shopping, weather - all of it was accurate. For people with limited time to plan, concise guidebooks such as this can be much friendlier to use than the larger guidebooks. We also purchased the larger Frommer's guidebook of Austria because we were traveling throughout the country and book size doesn't matter too much in the back seat of a car, but we never used the larger book for Salzburg. We definitely recommend both visiting Salzburg and this guidebook.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Guide Oct. 5 2012
By J Brophy - Published on Amazon.com
I am a big fan of the Frommer's day by day guides and the Salzburg one doesn't disappoint. The hotel section is way more robust than Rick Steves' one about Salzburg, and saved me $$. If you're headed to Salzburg and want more than fluff information, this guide book is an excellent choice.
