Just curious here... I thought I read somewhere out on Ricks website about a "Vienna, Salzburg and the Tirol" guidebook but I can't seem to find it in any stores. Does such a book exist? Is this a new book that will be coming out shortly? I've spent some time in Vienna but would love to back and check out some other parts of Austria as well.
According to the web site, it will be out in April 2009.
I believe the Vienna, Salzburg & Tirol Guidebook is somewhat of a "re-design" from the previous Germany / Austria / Switzerland book (I have an older copy of that).
The Switzerland book is now a separate edition and will be updated next in 2010. The Germany 2009 edition is now available (but apparently out of stock). In the product description of the Germany book there's no mention of "the north" including Berlin, which seems kind of odd (there's no "product detail" tab on the Germany book)?
Rather than producing an Austria Guidebook, they seem to have chosen to focus only on specific areas in the country.
As mentioned in a previous post, the book is expected in April.
BTW Steve-It has been my experience that they are really good about their dates. IF they say April of 2009, it will be out no later than that. I am anxious to see it as well since this is my favorite area of Europe and I am wondering if they will expand on the area a little and include some new things.
