Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Discover the historic location of Rembrandt's famous "Night Watch", the origin of the invention of cognac; homage to prostitutes; decypher facade stones; make love quite legally in the open air ; visit magnificent interior courtyards; ski in the heart of the town, or become an adept of "boat-in" - the Amsterdam version of drive-in - and eat a pizza in your own boat.

Away from the crowds and the stereotypes, Amsterdam still keeps her treasures so well hidden that they only reveal themselves to the inhabitants and to travellers who know how to wander off the beaten track.

An indispensable guide for those who think they know the Netherlands capital well or for those who want to discover the other face of the town.

Synopsis:

The secrets of Gaudi and the Sagrada Familia, a taxi-ride in the nude, a fantastic model railway network below the central station, a mysterious hand, an extraordinary dissection hall, an unsuspected anti-aircraft shelter, a deadly kiss, a museum in the back shop, some very special toilets, romance in love hotels or helicopters, ants and scorpions on the menu... Night and day, Barcelona only reveals its secrets to those residents and visitors who know how to stray off the beaten track. But you have to know where to look... An indispensable guide for those who thought they knew Barcelona well, or who would like to discover the hidden face of the city.
