Book reviews

We are finding and reading travel guides and books about Austria. Check out our travel book reviews and start planning your trips – or simply dream away.

Smartphones, Wi-Fi and GPS have made it easier to plan our travels. Nevertheless, a travel guide in book form is not yet complete obsolete. A travel guide is always a smart investment, both before you go out and during the trip.

Guidebooks are, we think, an important part of the journey when you go out and explore new destinations. We are therefore trying to find different types of travel guides and providing you with good book recommendations and reviews.
