Welcome to hidden europe. We promise a fresh perspective on well trodden trails, and a cool look at undiscovered corners.
Nothing better to brighten up the encroaching winter days than taking advantage of our pre-Christmas sale. And of course hidden europe makes for a wonderful Christmas gift (for yourself or a friend).
This year we are offering two special packages. Each package includes a selection of back issues (of your choice). The more expensive of the two packages also includes a hidden europe subscription for 2022.
This pre-Christmas special offer is available for order until Friday 17 December 2021. Orders received by noon on Friday 10 December should, with a bit of help from the postie, reach recipients by Christmas. However, orders to places outside Europe (and even those for delivery to remoter spots within Europe) really should be placed a little earlier to ensure pre-Christmas delivery.
In issue 65, published in mid-November 2021, we roam from Scotland through France and Germany to Vienna and beyond. There’s a lot of fresh air in hidden europe 65 as, following the example of 19th-century artists who swapped their studios for the freedom of working en plein air in fields and forests, we explore upland pastures in France’s Cantal region, roam the heath at Lüneburg and go foraging on Maltese byways.
hidden europe is a print magazine published thrice annually. Our brief is Europe wide, and we criss-cross the continent to bring our readers some of Europe’s very best travel writing.
We invite you to look beyond the usual tourist trails — or, if you prefer, stay at home, take out an atlas and enjoy our enthusiasm for the offbeat, the eclectic and the everyday.
hidden europe magazine is an independent publication — completely free of advertising. Our work is value driven and we approach every topic with passion, insight, conviction and authority.
hidden europe magazine aims at discovering the exotic in the everyday. The places we feature are unhyped and unsung yet full of interest. If you want to understand Europe's rich cultural diversity, this is the magazine for you.
hidden europe attends as much to the journey as to the destination. We take the train to Belarus and the ferry to Iceland. And the prose is as unhurried as the journeys it describes.
The magazine features genuinely out-of-the-way places. Where we touch down on somewhere more mainstream, the perspective on the place is unconventional. And we never present places merely as points of consumption.
