Books About Austria
I have finally put together the list of books about Austria that most added to our travel experience. Every book on this list made me more aware of some part of life in Austria in the past and now. I have not listed them in any order. You will find a mix of Fiction, Historic Fiction and non fiction. I have listed about half the books I read and I tried to pick the ones that most pertained to Vienna and Salzburg. I hope you are able to enjoy a wonderful country through reading some of these books.
I also read as much as I could find by Rick Steves including listening to the walking tours several times before I even stepped on the plane.
My very favorite book of all was The Little Book.
