Austria-Hungary: Including Dalmatia and Bosnia; Handbook for Travellers

By Karl Baedeker | Go to book overview

PREFACE.

The Handbook for Austria, which is now issued for the ninth time, and corresponds with the twenty-sixth German edition, is designed to assist the traveller in planning his tour and disposing of his time to the best advantage, to render him as far as possible independent of the services of hotel- keepers, commissionnaires, and guides, and thus to enable him the more thoroughly to enjoy and appreciate the objects of interest he meets with on his tour.

The Handbook has been compiled almost entirely from the personal observation of the Editor, and most of the country described has been repeatedly explored by him with a view to procure the latest possible information; but, as many of the data in the Handbook relate to matters which are constantly undergoing alteration, he will highly appreciate any corrections or suggestions with which travellers may favour him. Those already received, which in many instances have proved most useful, he gratefully acknowledges.

The districts described in this Handbook were formerly embraced in the Handbook for Southern Germany and Austria, which is now published in two separate volumes. The information in the present volume is, however, much fuller than that contained in the corresponding part of the older Handbook, and has been augmented by a short description of the Austrian Alps. Its contents are divided into Ten Sections (I. Vienna and its Environs; II. Upper and Lower Austria, Salzkammergut, and Salzburg; III. Tyrol; IV. Styria, Carinthia, Carniola, and Istria; V. Bohemia and Moravia; VI. Galicia and the Bukowina; VII. Dalmatia; VIII. Hungary, Croatia, and Slavonia; IX. Transylvania; X. Bosnia), each of which may be separately removed from the book by the traveller who wishes to minimise the bulk of his luggage. A ful ler description of the mountainous districts of S. Germany and Austria (Tyrol, Salzkammergut, etc.) has been published in a separate volume entitled ' The Eastern Alps' ( 10th Ed., 1903).

The Maps and Plans, on which special care has been bestowed, will, it is hoped, render material service to the traveller in planning his tour. Five new maps and seven new plans have been added in the present edition.
