In Hogwarts Legacy, all Hogwarts Secrets and where to find them ...

There are a number of puzzles to solve in Hogwarts' castle and grounds, each requiring meticulous planning and skilled spell use. Hogwarts Secrets, in particular, are challenges you can complete around the castle that reward you with special appearances, legendary gear, and access to unique collector's chests. Here is a handy handbook for you.

How to Complete all Hogwarts Secrets in Hogwarts Legacy

The Hogwarts Secrets are found in a few different locations around the castle and do require you to acquire specific spells or access to specific areas. Each may take a while to complete, depending on how far you get to the end of the story. Here's how:

This Secret is located on the bridge that connects the Library Annex to the Great Hall. You may find it by using the Viaduct Courtyard Floo. On this bridge, you'll need to light up the braziers lining the sides of the bridge and turn the dials to the appropriate numbers to open a hidden entrance.

Locate a vent on the ground at the far end of the bridge. This will tell you what numbers each of the braziers needs to be changed to. However, you must light up each brazier first before doing so. Use Incendio or Confringo.

These are the numbers you need to match to each symbol:

  • Triangle: I (1)
  • Circles with wand: II (2)
  • Triangle with crosshair: III (3)
  • Diamond with crossed wands: IV (4)

The vent will open up and reveal a ladder you can climb down beneath the bridge, where you can find your Legendary chest and collector's chest.

This Secret is located above the Clock Tower where the dueling club meets. Take the Clock Tower Courtyard Floo. In this main dueling area, you'll notice the symbols underneath the pendulum.

The key to unlocking these doors is to engage the pendulum with Glacius while it is still attached with a symbol. You'll need to locate each one as you unlock the doors, because they'll wear out quicker than you can remember.

The first door has a unicorn-like design on it. The second door is to the left. Freeze the pendulum on the matching unicorn-like symbol, and the door will be unlocked for you to enter. There will be a collector's chest inside.

The second door is on the second level of the pendulum and symbols. Unlock the level one door just right of the closed gated storage area and ascend the staircase. Then walk around the left-side corner, and the door will open. You may enter and find an eye-chest to unlock.

The third door, matching the two serpents symbols, is on the next level. Turn around, facing away from the pendulum and symbols, and head down the right staircase leading further up into the tower. Just off to the right side will be some wooden steps leading down to the door.

The last door will be directly in front of you, so you'll need to climb more steps to get to the last door. Turn around away from the pendulum and enter another staircase entrance. Enter through the wooden door to reach an outdoor area. The last door will be directly in front of you.

This is the easiest of the Hogwarts Secrets, although you must first complete Niamh's Trial and have a level three Alohomora. This means you'll need to progress through the main story and collect some Demiguise moons to boost your Alohomora spell.

To solve this Secret, you'll need to enter the locked metal door across from the Headmaster's Office. It's possible by using the Trophy Room Floo and then going to the left, where there's a gated staircase. Continue up the staircase and spiral stairs all the way to the hallway, where you'll see a bunch of statues and the Headmaster's Office entrance. The metal door is on the right at the end of the hall.

The key will be located at the top of the stairs from the Headmaster's Office. Find the level two entrance next to the telescope on the left side of the room. Continue up the steps and back down the next set of stairs to the level three entrance.

As you complete each Secret, make sure to check out your Challenges Menu to claim your appearance rewards. Three different unique outfits are available: Secret Solver's Bathing Costume, Tailored Tailcoat, and Fashionable Dress Robes.
