6th updated edition

‘The 500 Hidden Secrets of Brussels’ reveals these good-to-know addresses and many, many more. It is an affectionate guide to the city, written by a local journalist who know 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 Tin Tin albums or the art cinema that seats just 20 people. Some are places to visit, others are bits of information, for example on the people who have shaped Brussels (René Magritte, Victor Horta, …). The aim is not to cover the city form A to Z, but to inspire. The book also contains a number of maps, on which you can find all the numbered locations.

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.
