Publisher's 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.

What the Critics Say

"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)

    "Great idea but could be better"
    Would you try another book written by Simon Harry Brooke or narrated by Simon Harry Brooke?

    No would not use this writer again


    What about Simon Harry Brooke’s performance did you like?

    The information was interesting and liked it a lot but his directions were useless and even got names of roads wrong. After getting lost twice I had to give us so it was a waste of both my time in Vienna and money spent on this book.


    Do you think Vienna - The Imperial City needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Re writing while in the city itself maybe would improve it
