Editorial Reviews

Review

The Washington Post says, “The map guide lets you be inconspicuous: it’s as small and light as a novella, and its flip-out maps could pass as a flyer to a cool club.”

“Make sure you never lose your way in a strange city. Each of the Knopf MapGuides captures its city’s pith in a package as small as a passport wallet…”– Real Simple

“Knopf MapGuides are handy, practical and perfect for those of us who are slightly impaired when it comes to map-reading. You don’t have to search a huge crackling sheet with a microscopic index for one of 10,000 dots on the map…The extraordinary quality of the books’ beautiful hues and heavy paper also give these $8.95 guides an evocative quality that stands apart from the glossy, garish look of most travel books.” – Marin Independent Journal

“A good, handy portable item for a quick trip” – San Francisco Chronicle

“We love Knopf’s smart new map guides.” – Travel & Leisure

This Knopf map guide was the BEST money I've spent in a long time! We brought another "top ten" guide with us on our trip to Munich, but found ourselves returning to this guide over and over. The full color maps were easy to use and so informative! From "sights to see", subway stops and restaurant listings, the suggestions in the guide were beyond fantastic!
On the last day of our trip we were in a quiet part of town without a restaurant in sight. The guide suggested an Italian cafe a few blocks away and it ended up being the best time we had on the whole trip. We never would have gone there had it not been for the guide.
Also, my husband and I are vegetarian and the guide even listed a few vegetarian restaurants which was VERY helpful when traveling in Germany (and delicious!). Now that we're back from the trip, we still look back at the guide to remind us of all the great fun we had. Can't wait for our next trip... and our next Knopf Guide!

I purchased this and five other city mapguides prior to my european trip because i felt they would be easy to carry and review in the field. The segmented maps are great and easy to read ( without need of magnifying glasses ). The highlights for both sightseeing and for food and restaurants are concise but right on target.
My only changes would be to include a large scale map of the entire city to make it easier to get an overview of the whole. Once you get the hang of the segments it is easy to flip between adjacent sections even though they may not be in sequence.
I ended up taking these guides with me on a daily basis while leaving the heavier guidebooks in the hotel room.
