Comprehensive. The only guidebook you will need.
By Peggy Skerda
We usually carry two or three guidebooks on our trips. After reading this one before our trip, we decided it was the only one that we would need, and that proved to be the case. The walks were easy to follow, and the restaurant recommendations were right on. With time for only one side trip, we chose Regensburg, based on this guidebook, and we didn't go wrong. I would especially recommend this to first-timers.

Great travel guide
By John C
Very informative. One of the only German travel guides that we could find that had information on Stuttgart. We used the book to plan our 3 day side trip to Stuttgart last month.

Great Travel Book
As with most Lonely Planet guides, this one did not disappoint. From possible itineraries to the history of Munich and the Black Forest, this travel title provides many options for a visitor to choose from. I also like how the series now incorporates the use of more color now. As far as I am concerned, an app or an eBook still can't substitute for the ability to thumb through and mark the pages of a printed travel guide.
