Adrian Bridge, The Daily Telegraph

• From the Roman legions and Emperor Napoleon to the Habsburgs and Hitler.

• The Holy Lance, Fool’s Tower, Klimt’s Last Studio, and the Knights of Blood Street.

• 007 in Vienna, Montezuma’s headdress, Harry Lime’s doorway, and Freud’s secret of dreams.

• The ideal city guide for travellers who want to escape the crowds and go beyond the well-known paths, as well as for those inhabitants who perhaps thought they already knew their city.
