Welcome to hidden europe. We promise a fresh perspective on well trodden trails, and a cool look at undiscovered corners.
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.

The latest issue of hidden europe, published in March 2014, is number 42. Join us as we visit the Danish island of Ærø, follow the crowd at Rijeka’s carnival, travel down the Mani peninsula in Greece and discover a few surprises in the German town of Weimar. We also take the road from Ermelo to Amsterdam to discover New Scotland, take the slow train through the hills of Bohemia, reflect on the European Union’s Eastern Partnerships initiative and delve into the history of the Northern Sea Route.
Our e-brief, called Letter from Europe, complements the magazine nicely. It is published about thrice monthly and reports on issues of culture and travel. Sign up for free and enjoy a dose of hidden europe between the magazine issues.
