There’s not that many secret European towns anymore since Google has taken over the world. But like most travellers I like to find secret spots and hidden gems around the world. There’s something magical about a place that is untouched by tourist traps and over priced coffee. So in saying that I have rounded up 17 Secret European Towns to help cure your desire for the new and undiscovered.

    Wow! The world is full of some incredible places! I want to tick all of these off my list one day. But in November I’m heading to Norway, I’ll definitely be visiting Bergen, and I’ll give Alesund a consider when planning my itinerary!

    Hey Shelby 🙂 I saved this one straight away, knowing I will come back to it and greedily note down each of the places on my ever-growing list 😉 hahaha. I love going places that are less touristy, or even places that are touristy, but at times of the year that they are considered dead. Every town and village can have a character to it, and getting off the beaten path is a lot of fun!
    Thank you for the recommendations! I was even able to do a fist pump when I saw Karlovy Vary – yus! Hehe, it was a pretty interesting place, with an old-world feel about it. Kind of crumbling but regal. You can drink the weird medicinal waters that come from the very streets, but they taste really sulphurus.
    I would like to add one or two ;): Maybe, Les Eyzies in France – popular with the French but still unknown to us English speakers. Also… the best secret I have ever encountered, and I am going out on a limb sharing it here because it is sacred and untouched… But the small town of St Jakob in Deferregen, in Austria – it is situated in a hidden valley (you must got through Italy, then over a one-way car pass in the mountains to get there) and it is like eden. Truly :). take a look here: http://life-gazing-and-wildstrawberries.blogspot.co.nz/2014/09/into-eden.html
