With its perfectly preserved medieval buildings and ancient cobblestone streets, Antwerp might seem content to rest on historic laurels. In fact, Belgium's second-largest city is a vibrant, cosmopolitan place where avant-garde fashion, cutting-edge architecture and progressive cuisine flourish. New York Post
From the Inside Flap
What are the 5 most stunning restaurants in Antwerp? What are the 5 most surprising sculptures in the Middelheim open-air museum? What are the 5 best swimming pools in the city? What are the 5 best tram rides and where can you discover the 5 most secret streets? The 500 Hidden Secrets of Antwerp reveals these good-to-know addresses and many, many more. It is an affectionate guide to the city. Derek Blyth writes about the 500 places and details in Antwerp that few people know, like the secluded garden of the Rockox house or art cinema Klappei. Some are places to visit, others are bits of information, for example on famous people who were born in Antwerp (Panamarenko, Pieter Paul Rubens...) 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.
Derek Blyth is a writer and journalist, originally from the UK, who has lived in Belgium for more than 20 years. He is a former editor of The Bulletin and has written countless articles and books, including a regular column on Brussels life in Eurostar's Metropolitan Magazine. He gives guided tours and talks, he is co-founder of the discussion forum Café Europa and created the website www.mysecretbrussels.com.
