We'll tell you about the history of this city. which lies at the cross roads of Europe, and recount the witty but tragic comment that Sigmund Freud made to the Nazis as they arrested him. As we show you the city's great art galleries and churches, we'll point out the art school that rejected an applicant named Adolf Hitler and explain the meaning of "Strum un Strang".

Most importantly, we'll point out the best of Vienna's coffee houses along the way - including Trotsky's favourite.PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.



"My boyfriend was the one who wanted to do this, as I'm not really interested in history - or at least I wasn't. I thought the bit about the last emperor and empress was really moving, especially when we saw her tomb! Top tour!" (Sophie, London)
