Barcelona - Capital of Catalonia
Barcelona lies directly at the sea and under the Catalan sun with eternal blue sky. A first class mixture between city and sea and therefore an ideal destination for a city trip.
By plane you only have 1.5 hours to get to Barcelona. But it is not only the good location that gives the city so many tourists. Barcelona has much more to offer besides the Mediterranean climate. The cultural offer is constantly growing and so one can visit great events all year round. Whether young or old, Barcelona has something for everyone.
Art and Culture
Anyone interested in architecture and painting knows that Gaudi and Picasso are inseparably linked to Barcelona. The works of Antoni Gaudi can be found throughout the city. Probably the most famous of his works, the Sagrada Familia, is still under construction and will be completed in 2026 on the 100th anniversary of his death. Picasso spent his youth and academy years in Barcelona. The Picasso Museum is housed in five neighbouring medieval palaces.
In summer, Barcelona enchants with many music festivals. Music lovers of different styles will be delighted. We will be happy to provide you with information about Barcelona's events and advise you on your choice of hotel.
In the Barri Gòtic, the car-free, medieval centre of the city, chic boutiques invite you to stroll and cosy cafés invite you to linger. Idyllic squares, quiet patios and narrow streets form the setting for this incomparable quarter.
