"I have had a life long love for the city of Vienna and the country of Austria! I got this product thinking it would be a good way for me to remember all the trips i have taken there and all the sites in Vienna. When i got the DVD i was not at all disappointed. The narator of the Program Ian Wright is very funny so he adds some real fun to your tour of the city. The program also takes you to a WWII concentration camp outside of vienna so you get more then just the city. I would highly recomend this DVD to any who already knows and loves vienna or to someone just starting to discover this magical city!!"

"I purchased this item before our trip to Vienna and found it very useful in identifying potential sights to visit. Some of the sights covered in the video were not listed in the travel guide books I've read. For instance, a day trip to the Mauthausen Memorial (a death camp from Hitler's regime) is something included in the video yet not mentioned in the travel guide books. I would recommend the video as a brief introduction to Vienna and surrounding districts."

"While it gives good information about Vienna, it was goofier than what I was looking for."
Not as dignified as the photo on front would imply.

"Have traveled to Vienna, fond memories but with this DVD the classic City of Music was reduced to "hippies" sitting around playing on carved vegetables. The places visited were important but the narration was difficult to understand and the flippant attitude of the narrator was very undignified. A video that to me reflects the social culture of lack of civility. Possibly respect for Mozart's piano would be in order not the narrators attempt at humor or silliness. Respect for the graves of the famous in the cemetery, not an Elvis impression. Very disappointed. The whole video is more about the narrator than about Vienna. Sorry I cannot recommend it.
