Summary

Historical and cultural walking tours of Europe's finest cities...
As we take in the magnificent baroque Karlskirche we'll tell you why it was built. Moving on to the neighbouring Secession building, you'll hear about the Jugenstil movement and why it shocked contemporary Vienna, including the Emperor Franz Josef.
We'll tell you about the history of this city, which lies at the crossroads 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". We'll help you get your bearings around the vast Hofburg Palace complex and tell you about the tragic Empress Sissy.
Most importantly, we'll point out the best of Vienna's coffeehouses 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.
