Barcelona


Often referred to as the second capital city of Spain, Barcelona offers an eclectic mix of old and new, and boasts some of the finest architecture in Europe combined with modern chic. Wandering around Barcelona you will easily spot many of Antoni Gaudi's designs, which are dotted all over the city, including his signature building, the Sagrada Familia cathedral. The famous pedestrian route Las Ramblas features a mix of typical touristy souvenirs and local arts and crafts, however the main attractions here are the numerous life statues, each one as fantastic as the next. Sports fans should head to Camp Nou, the home ground of Barcelona FC. Those looking for some retail therapy will be happy too with stores on almost every street, and include many famous high street and designer names. So pack your bags, fly with Austrian Airlines to Barcelona and experience this unique and beautiful city soon.

SHOPPING in Barcelona

Bingo Shop

If you are looking for young fashion at a good price, then you should pay a visit to Bingo Shop. Here, you'll find funny, cheeky, colourful and cool items. For example by Cecilia Sörensen, Club Volga, Ladies & Gentlemen, Pia Kahila, Wood Wood, A-Forest, Surface to Air and Cheap Monday.   As a regular Barcelona shopper, you should know by now that the Spanish like to purchase magazines, books and small art items along with their outfit items while listening to great music - what else do you want? Tip: Excellent shoe selection for example by St. Vacant, Nokia, Karhu Originals and Gram.

Pinzat

Everybody in search of something special will make a find at Pinzat. For ten years, the creative heads behind the trendy label have worked on their ideas and a considerable range of products.   The result: unique bags and backpacks made of vinyl, one of the oldest customary form of plastics. But don't think of stiff and grey plastic bags. The offer ranges from small, medium-sized to big bags which were designed by graffiti artists from all over the world. From motifs with flamenco dancers to landscapes - everything is possible and makes each and every piece unique.   In order to guarantee a longer lifespan, the products are sewed twice and an additional strap enables you to wear your bag at the waist and attach it to your bike's handlebar. Also available: more vinyl pieces for the safe transport on your bicycle.

Julie Sohn

To be honest, this has nothing to do with Catalonian and not even with Spanish fashion. However you should still pay a visit to the store of the Korean fashion designer Julie Sohn if you are doing a shopping trip.   The store is very Asian with its little bit of Zen, little bit of Feng Shui but also a touch of cool New York style. The mix makes it somehow perfect and distracts you briefly from the fashion items presented. This is no surprise as the interior design of this shop has won an award.   The fashion also deserves an award: discrete and simple, but never boring and always stylish.

SIGHTS in Barcelona

Casa Milà

Antonio Gaudí has left his characteristic footprint on many squares of the city. Give the eternal Sagrada family, where most tourists tend to queue for an eternity, a miss if you are short on time.   Casa Milà, on the other hand, is a must-see. The building, which houses several apartments and business locations, was built between 1906 and1910, but still feels contemporary and modern. The fascinating building surprises with its stretching metal fence and sinuous balconies. The best part is the walk over the roof terrace.   The bizarre and often photographed figures can be visited at midnight during the summer months. The walk on the roof and the view of the city at night are just unique.

Chocolate museum

No matter if its a gorilla, a pair of lovers, a torero or Jesus Christ. The Museu de la Xocolata in Barcelona got them all. Made from chocolate.   You can find the sweet artworks in the first Catalan chocolate museum, next to the zoo and the parliament of Barcelona. It was opened in 2000 by the regional confectionary guild.   The museum presents history and origin of chocolate, how it found its way to Europe and how it was deemed as medicine, food or aphrodisiac.   The biggest part of the chocolate museum is however occupied by the production of chocolate. Machines are exhibited that are used in different production processes - from the grinding of the dried beans to the casting of the bars.   In the "Sala Barcelona", representative buildings from Barcelona are recreated using chocolate. In order that nobody nibbles one of the sweet artworks, each visitor gets a piece of chocolate at the entrance.  

El Raval

The times where El Raval was avoided are definitely over. In previous times, there were many cheap and cheap-looking apartments that immigrants used to start off their lives abroad.   Today musicians, sprayers and artists have discovered the beauty of the darkness that surrounds this area. As an example, the mestizo sound of Manu Chao was born here. After the opening of the three temples for contemporary art MACBA, CCCB and FAD, the area was upgraded and turned into a hot spot for tourists, creative and trendy people. Meanwhile, there are many trendy and hip bars and restaurants.   Nevertheless, there are still some dodgy people, cheap restaurants and 24-hour shops that keep the area exiting and trendy. Tip: avoid the side alleys especially at night and if you are dressed smart.

EAT in Barcelona

Santa María

It's all about the delicious Catalonian appetizer that Barcelona offers in every possible variation. Particularly delicious are the tapas at Santa María: Chef Paco Guzmán moves away from classical tapas recipes and serves unusual creative combinations.   The delicious ideas range from Spanish pig roast on sauerkraut to tuna with eucalyptus and pomegranate. We guarantee: every experiment is a triumph!

Loft212

In July 2012 Albert Longán kicked off his restaurant Loft212 in Barcelona. The economic crisis has seized the country, unemployment rates are high. But in his restaurant business booms. The guests order tapas - including sushi - and drink Cerveza.   In the kitchen Albert's son Daniel Longán creates Spanish bites with an Asian touch, he serves seasonal and regional cuisine for the main courses - from fish to meat (the latter is from the Valle de Cardener and therefore specifically tasteful). And all this embedded in the ambiance of New York lofts from the 1950s. The design comes from Carlos Martinez: bright and dark wood, whitewashed brick walls with black and white photographies, a mix of wooden and aluminium chairs at the bar - long, black, with a counter lighted in yellow colours. Quite comfortable indeed and therefore no surprise that the Spaniards love to spend their money here - for good food and good company. All crises aside!   

Ca l'Isidre

Ca l'Isidre is considered to be one of the best restaurants in town and not only since, in 1986, HRH King Juan Carlos and his spouse HRH Queen Sophia celebrated their 23rd wedding anniversary here. This true Catalonian kitchen, which has very little French influence, will allow you an extraordinary gourmet experience.   The menu changes every day, as owner Isidre Gironés pays a visit to the market and evaluates its offerings. He then decides what will be put on the menu that day. There is a huge selection of great wines which go along very well with your gazpacho, sea bass, scampi or turbot.

STAY in Barcelona

The urban Suites

These apartments are as beautiful as your apartment back home. Urban Suites offers 16 suites and 4 apartments in the lively Sants district. The best is that even the suites have their own kitchen. If you wish to have your breakfast coffee or cook a delicious dinner with all the tasty produce you bought at the market, you will certainly appreciate it.   The community terrace invites you to drink one or two San Miguels in good company. Suite for 1-2 people with kitchen from 117 euros per night. Insider tip: book early or stay long.

Hotel Claris

How does a palace dating from 1892 become an exclusive 5-star hotel? You add glass, concrete and steel to the old walls and turn this into an architectural highlight in the middle of El Born next to the old town.   The theme is pure elegance in the rooms, the pool terrace and the gourmet restaurant East 47. The terrace hosts Djs from June to October while guests like to enjoy their cocktails. The private Egyptian art collection is an evidence of how classy this hotel is. Double rooms are available from 170 euros per night.

Praktik Rambla

The grand building dating from the 19th century is situated on one of the most beautiful streets of Barcelona. In 2009, the hotel underwent a complete renovation and designers combined and contrasted details of the past with contemporary stylish elements. Elegance meets style, mosaic tiles mirror light installations, playful twirl contrasts with clear furniture design.   The sum of those beautiful parts results in a charming boutique hotel. A highlight are the Jugendstill balconies, as most of the rooms have a view to the Rambla Cataluna. Would you like to experience a local habit? Then grab a drink and enjoy it on the roof terrace of a typical Catalonian inner courtyard. Small hint: There is one room overlooking the courtyard. Book it! It is the biggest and most beautiful room of the hotel. A double room is available from Euro 80 per night.
