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

From 5 awesome biking tours in Berlin to the 5 best art book stores in New York, from the 5 most eye-catching modern buildings in Paris to the 5 best street markets in Lisbon: you can find all of these lists with cool addresses, and a lot more, in the travel guides of The 500 Hidden Secrets series. In 2012 Luster published the first book in what would become a unique and internationally successful series of city guides: The 500 Hidden Secrets. The 500 Hidden Secrets of Brussels was an immediate success; today 7 new editions have already been published, with over 25.000 copies sold. Since then, the series has grown substantially, with bestselling titles like The 500 Hidden Secrets of Paris, The 500 Hidden Secrets of London, and The 500 Hidden Secrets of Barcelona, which was named the second best Barcelona guide book by The Independent in 2017.

4

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. In the fall of 2017 there will be 20 titles available in the series. The 500 Hidden Secrets of New York, Dublin, Rome, Madrid were launched in June; in October The 500 Hidden Secrets of Los Angeles, Miami, Prague and Bangkok will be published. And there’s even more to come: in 2018 Luster will launch a new series of travel guides, covering countries and regions instead of cities. The first two titles in this new series are The Hidden Secrets of Belgium and The Hidden Secrets of Malta.

Luster has launched a new website, W W W . T H E 5 0 0 H I D D E N S E C R E T S . C O M .  It’s a platform where travel aficionados can find inspiration for new destinations, beautiful photos and a lot of content from the books: for each destination you’ll find a minimum of 10 lists with 5 addresses in the fields of food, drinks, sleep, culture, … The authors of the guides also share their personal favourites.
