About

Following the success of the The 500 Hidden Secrets series, Luster Publishing introduced two spin-off series. They meet the same high quality standards and share the same graphic look and feel.

The 500 H I D D E N S E C R E T S

T H E 5 0 0 H I D D E N S E C R E T S are city guides, such as The 500 Hidden Secrets of London or The 500 Hidden Secrets of Barcelona. H I D D E N G U I D E S are guides on countries and regions, such as Hidden Belgium or Hidden Scotland.

From 5 awesome biking routes in Berlin to the 5 best art bookshops in New York, from the 5 most eye-catching modern buildings in Paris to 5 delicious Cuban fruits to taste in Havana, from 5 colourful city gardens in Hamburg to the 5 best street markets in Lisbon: you can find all of these lists of cool spots, and many more, in the city guides of the The 500 Hidden Secrets series.

T H E M E D H I D D E N G U I D E S are guides about cities or regions covering a specific theme, such as Nostalgic London or Belgium for Foodies.

You can find all the available titles in these three series on the T H E 5 0 0 H I D D E N S E C R E T S . C O M website. Do you want to buy one or more guides online? Or are you looking for interesting content and travel inspiration? The500hiddensecrets.com has got you covered. Browse hundreds of hotspots in over 40 destinations on your phone, tablet or desktop and use the website as your ideal travel companion, thanks to the interactive map guiding you straight to the hidden secret of your choice. You can also create a personal account which will allow you to save all your personal favourites in one handy overview. Lots of new content is added to the website regularly, such as fresh addresses to visit, curated lists from inspiring locals or insider tips.

In 2012, Luster published the first book in what would become a unique and internationally successful series of city guides: The 500 Hidden Secrets. In the spring of 2021, the series will consist of no less than 35 titles. Each of these guides — is written by a savvy local — contains only independent advice — is based on thorough research and the author’s personal opinions — is frequently updated and reissued.

There’s more to the South of France than sun, beaches, palm trees and the azure blue sea. For over a hundred years, it has been the favourite destination of many artists, who find themselves drawn to the superb light and the pleasant climate. Hidden Art in the South of France will show you what the area between Collioure and Menton has to offer in terms of surprising and remarkable art and cultural treasures. Journalist and art connoisseur Eric Rinckhout (Knack Magazine a.o.) selected more than 350 exceptional places: from the chapel decorated by Louise Bourgeois to the studio of Matisse and the apartment of Nabokov, from Eileen Gray’s modernist Villa E-1027 to architect Frank Gehry’s most recent design, from the oldest cinema in the world to street art in Marseille.
