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 bookshops 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 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 8 updates 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.

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 2018 there will be 28 city guides available in the The 500 Hidden Secrets series, and in the spring Luster launched the first two titles in a new series of travel guides covering countries and regions instead of cities (Hidden Belgium and Hidden Tenerife); in the following months and years, more titles will be added to both series.

Also, don’t forget to visit our website W W W . T H E 5 0 0 H I D D E N S E C R E T S .

Judith Lohse knows Munich like the back of her hand, seeing that she wrote a book about it (in German), called München geheim. Her Hidden Secrets guide is a new ode to her hometown, in which she shares her enthusiasm about the countless lovely places you shouldn’t miss. Flipping through this city guide, it will come as no surprise that Munich is ranked as one of the most liveable cities in the world: even though Bavaria’s capital is the second largest city in Germany – and it has all the upsides of a metropolis – it still feels like a warm, refined and welcoming town. This guide is the perfect companion for discovering Munich, leading you to 500 great places, such as: —— 5 locals’ F A V O U R I T E S F O R L U N C H —— 5 promising Y O U N G F A S H I O N L A B E L S designed in Munich —— 5 very different B E E R G A R D E N S —— the 5 most S U N N Y S P O T S to catch your breath —— 5 fascinating A R C H I T E C T U R E T O U R S —— and much more.

500 MUST-KNOW ADDRESSES THAT UNVEIL VIENNA’S MANY SIDES

Vienna stands for Austrian pomp and traditions, but let’s not forget that the city is also bursting with contemporary life – there are some very modern and trendy sides to Vienna as well, for example cool post-war architecture and hip and stylish shops and restaurants. Vienna is a very fascinating city, thanks to the many different cultures that are present as a result of the city’s rich history. Tanja Paar was born in Graz but lost her heart to Vienna, where she now lives and works as a journalist and writer. Her debut novel Die Unversehrten was published in 2018 and is now followed by this city guide, in which Tanja shares her favourite places to spend time in Vienna, such as: —— 5 M U S E U M S H O P S you shouldn’t miss —— the 5 most fun C U L T U R A L S P O T S F O R K I D S —— 5 restaurants with a perfect W A T E R F R O N T

500 PLACES WHERE YOU’LL DISCOVER THE BRUGES THAT LOCALS LOVE

Journalist Derek Blyth was born in the U.K. but has lived in Belgium for more than 25 years. He has written countless articles about Belgian cities and books like Flemish Cities Explored. He is the author of The 500 Hidden Secrets of Brussels, Antwerp and Ghent, and of Hidden Belgium. A city guide about Bruges was always on his wish list, as it’s one of Belgium’s most popular tourist destinations. Many people only visit Bruges’ highlights and according to Derek that’s a pity, because there’s so much more to experience. This guide is there to prove him right, with 500 must-visit places, such as: —— the 5 best restaurants for N E W F L E M I S H

What are the five best waterfront terraces? Where can you find the freshest and crispiest fries? What are the best public transport routes? Where are the quietest spots and the best viewing points? And what are the most unusual fountains and sculptures? The 500 Hidden Secrets of Amsterdam reveals these good-toknow addresses and many more. It is an affectionate guide to the city, written by Amsterdam-based journalists Saskia Naafs and Guido van Eijck. They have selected places and details that few people know, like an atomic bunker in the Vondelpark, a shop where you can buy meteorite shards, or a hidden Keith Haring mural in a food distribution centre. 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. It is the sixth guide in the successful Hidden Secrets series. Also available (in regularly updated new editions) are The 500 Hidden Secrets of Paris, Brussels, Antwerp, Ghent and Flanders Fields & the Belgian Coast. Journalists S A S K I A N A A F S & G U I D O V A N E I J C K live and work in Amsterdam. They specialise in a wide range of topics, from housing and education, to music and art. They write for national newspapers Het Parool and de Volkskrant and weekly magazine De Groene Amsterdammer.
