Publisher's Summary

Historical and cultural walking tours of Europe's finest cities...
We start by the celebrated Opera House and the Sacher Hotel, home of the even more celebrated Sachertorte chocolate cake. Then we'll lead you past some of Vienna's most remarkable and beautiful churches.
We'll show you where Mozart wrote The Magic Flute and explain why it possibly cost him his life. You'll visit the grand cathedral, the Stephansdom, and learn the meaning of the mysterious "05" that is carved into its walls.
As we guide you through the picturesque winding streets of the old town, we'll tell the story of the tragic Mayerling affair and show you how to find the Roman ruins in Vienna's oldest square, the Hoher Market.
We'll explain what schmah is and take you to the Judensplatz, where you'll hear about the moving but controversial new monument to Vienna's Holocaust victims, before we show you the world's most luxurious fire station.
