Barcelona is a city with many facets. Art, culture, sights, leisure activities and the beach right outside the door make the short vacation in the Spanish metropolis an unforgettable event.
The city with its peculiarities is one of the most important art metropolises, is an attraction for many artists and outspoken people who prefer an extraordinary lifestyle. Reason enough for an (extended) short break in Barcelona.
Barcelona – cultural pearl on the Mediterranean
There is hardly a city in Europe that offers more sights as well as tourist and cultural highlights . For last-minute travelers, the city offers inexpensive weekend trips with special attractions, so that the short vacationer never gets bored.
Barcelona – The right weekend trip for adventurers and those seeking relaxation
Catalonia’s capital offers short vacationers eventful days. In the city’s many museums you can marvel at exhibits and art objects from bygone times and contemporary art. We recommend the Museu Picasso (daily from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.) and the Archeology Museum of Catalonia. In the many halls that are filled with exhibits, the tourist learns a lot about the origins and culture of the region of Spain.
Individualists and nature lovers enjoy the beauty of the indescribable flora in Parc de les Aigües , Serra de Collserola Park or Turó Park . The multitude of different sights cannot be visited in one day.
Therefore it is worth looking for accommodation during the weekend trip. There are inexpensive hostels to luxury hotels. Booked early and you can find great bargains for a weekend trip to Barcelona.
Sightseeing tour when visiting Barcelona
When planning a visit to the Palau de la Generalitat and the Sagrada Famîlia basilica, one should definitely not forget (see also the article about the famous Spanish church on Wikipedia). Other attractions include the Sónar (a festival), a performance at the Gran Theater del Liceu and La Barceloneta beach. The Olympic Stadium is just as worth seeing .
The rich Spanish cuisine, which is offered everywhere in small pubs and restaurants, ensures culinary delights. Seafood, fish and regional and international dishes are enjoyed with a Spanish red wine.
For those willing to party, Barcelona offers everything your heart desires on a short break. Because the city cannot calm down. Eating late and partying late, the many clubs, bars and pubs don’t fill up until around 1 or 2 a.m. The offers are rich and offer exactly the right ambience for every tourist. The party continues into the morning.
Barcelona is not only worthwhile for those interested in culture and art. Especially at the beginning of spring and autumn, when it is still (or already again) uncomfortably cold in Germany, you can enjoy pleasant temperatures in Barcelona.
