To honour the tenth birthday of our very first Hidden Secrets guide, we're giving away a free downloadable city walk with each order of The 500 Hidden Secrets of Brussels. The PDF will be available for download right after your payment. The city walk can be opened on mobile or printed out. 

About the city walk: 

This 4 km (approx. 1 hour) walk will take you past a myriad of secret alleys and lost arcades in the Belgian capital. You'll pass lots of hidden secrets (cafes, restaurants, shops, and more) along the way. 

  • Where are the 5 best places to eat frites in Brussels?
  • What are the 5 most romantic cafés in the city?
  • Where are the 5 best places to get fit?
  • Which 5 bars have the longest beer list?
  • Where are the 5 most striking art nouveau houses?

The 500 Hidden Secrets of Brussels reveals these good-to-know addresses and many more. It is an affectionate guide to the city, written by Derek Blyth, a journalist who knows the city intimately. His aim is to reveal the 500 places and details that no one knows, like the cafeteria on the top floor of the national library, the hidden remains of the city wall, the metro station that is decorated with 140 characters from Tintin albums or the art cinema that seats just 20 people. 

This is a book for visitors who want to avoid the usual tourist spots and for residents who are keen to track down the city’s best-kept secrets. 500 addresses in total, presented in original lists of 5. Maps & index included.
