Like all travel books, the material is a bit dated, but out of the many imprints, I'm an unabashed loyal Lonely Planet fan. There's lots of great history and culture, and although far from perfect, you'll do a lot worse with other imprints in my experience. Very helpful on a recent trip. And a personal hint to travelers - buying used copies is often better since the previous owner(s) - as I did - will correct, add, or cross out information that makes it even more helpful. A decent book about a lovely place - recommended!
When we travel, we do the research, and the Lonely Planet series seems to be close to our kind of sight-seeing.
For my one-week-only trip (I circulated around Frankfurt and Wiesbaden) the book did it's job. The maps are great; the articles refresh your memory and help you look knowledgeable enough when talking to locals. Overall I think it makes the visit through this very hospitable country easier and even more entertaining.
Normally, I am a faithful LP travel guide user, the books have always been helpul for trips I have taken in the past. On a 3 week trip through Germany in May-June 2006, I used the Germany LP and was unpleasantly suprised time after time at the outdated or just plain incorrect information in the book. Not little things like prices, which always go up, but major problems like listings for buses to the airport in Berlin, that I discovered after much searching, had been discontinued two years ago. This type of thing happened repeatedly. At the end of the trip I actually felt cheated and as if I had wasted my money, and worse, valuable time depending on information provided in this purchase. The only thing it ended up being good for was finding hotel listigs to make reservations with during the planning stages. I don't have another guide to suggest instead, but leaving basic transportation info outdated for so long is just negligent. I'm going to to try Rough Guide next time.
The best thing about Lonely Planet guide books is it gives you tons of useful information from customs and culture to language to the nitty-gritty how to, where to go, and what to see and do. We just returned from a one week trip to Germany. It was wonderful, and we took the Lonely Planet guidebook with us everywhere. It led us to many great cities, sights, restaurants, and places to stay. Highly recommended! We have also used Lonely Planet guidebooks on our trips to Thailand and Japan. It has never led us very far astray. :)
