Journalist Derek Blyth has lived in Belgium for more than 25 years. He has written countless articles and a number of books about Belgian cities, including the bestselling city guides The 500 Hidden Secrets of Brussels, Bruges, Antwerp and Ghent.
This alternative guidebook is his personal ode to what he likes to call ‘the world’s strangest country’. It sets out to prove that Belgium is in fact one of the most interesting states in Europe. It takes you off the beaten track to more than 300 curious and unexpected places to visit – places that will awaken your senses, revive your curiosity and have a story to tell, such as:
- inspiring artists’ houses
- delightful enigmatic monuments
- wonderfully authentic markets
- unknown urban trails
- and much more.
These hidden gems were photographed by Roel Hendrickx, an avid traveller, hiker and day-tripper, who (re)discovered some of the most wonderful places in his own country thanks to this book.
