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.

SIGHTS in Barcelona

La Boqueria

The most favourite, beautiful, colourful and best market hall is situated right at the Rambla. The hall was rebuilt in 1914 and is as busy as any high street. Michelin star chefs mix with hobby cooks, housewives and tourists while shopping for their produce. The vegetables and fruits stands are vibrant with their colours and inviting scents. Make sure you take a fresh fruit juice on your journey. Careful: the choice is huge! The fish section is very impressive and the produce very fresh indeed. If you cannot stomach seeing fresh fish that's still moving, you should stay well clear. In addition, there is an irresistible offer of cheeses, sausages, sweets, olives and snacks, which can be eaten straight away. Hot tip: the small restaurants around the market are the place to go to enjoy a glass of wine with some very fresh tapas.

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.  

Parc Güell

Parc Güell is very untypical for a popular attractions point for tourist as there are no costs, no waiting time and endless room to enjoy nature and culture.   You should be thankful to Eusebi Güell that you can enjoy a beautiful afternoon in this park. The son of a wealthy Barcelonan family wished for a large leisure oasis, where Antonio Gaudí actively contributed the art displayed in the park.   Gaudi in fact was so enthusiastic about the idea that even when the city decided to stop the work in 1914, he continued to further develop the park on his own. The result is an amazing mix of nature and art. One can spend hours at the park in peace. The only spot where you could potentially find a crowd of people is in front Gaudí's most impressive building.

EAT in Barcelona

Bubo

What would Barcelona be without chocolate? Still worth a trip, we happily admit that. However, there still would be an elementary part missing to complete your happiness. We recommend whenever possible to take a break at a coffee house and eat a piece of cake and never ever to resist dessert in a restaurant.   If that's still not enough than you should not miss out on Bubo?s. In this place sweets are treated like little treasures: chocolates, bonbons, chocolate cakes and cookies are displayed like jewellery in a show window. If you want to start nibbling straight away, you will be served coffee or champagne.

Jai-Ca

What makes this restaurant so great? The perfect photo collection featuring people, neighbourhood oldies and Ronaldinho. The wine flows easier than you realise, the staff does not speak a word English and that makes it all so enjoyable. Jai-Ca offer Tapas in typical style.   You can recognise insiders by their colourful skin and lots of metals attached to their faces. If you do look regular, don't worry, you are still very welcome here. Expect a surprise at the end of the night- the bill is so small that you will be tempted to have another glass of wine or two.

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!

SHOPPING in Barcelona

Duduá

Duduá is not a shop but a network for artists that haven't made it yet. If you are a creative person then don't hesitate to take your work to the Duduá. Here, you'll find like-minded people that will not only share their opinion, but will also organise interesting workshops.   If you prefer to watch rather than create then you are also in the right place: small art pieces, limited music, shirts, magazines and a lot of this and that with artistic flair. Careful: time just flies in this shop!

Custo Barcelona

Probably the most famous fashion export Barcelona's is mainly one thing: colourful. The eye-catching prints are recognised by everyone who has seen them once. Famous people like Penelope Cruz, Antonio Banderas and Julia Roberts helped the brand gain international fame.   Nevertheless, Custo's flagship stores are a rarity in Europe. Take the opportunity to shop in one of the three Custo shops in Barcelona and your friends back home will envy your purchases for sure.

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.

STAY in Barcelona

Hotel Omm

Designers and architects created a great ambience for sophisticated people. Dark corridors lead to light rooms where modern design meets natural materials leaving you with a great feeling.   If you wish to do more for your well-being, then let yourself be pampered at the spa, have a fruit juice at the pool bar or enjoy dinner at the hotel restaurant Moo. The Moo holds one Michelin star and features a wine cellar with 600 different types of wine awaiting the connoisseur. Double rooms are available from 230 euros per night.

Pensió Jardí

If you have a balcony with such a great view, then you should not care about the simplicity of the rooms. The view to the Plaça del Pi is best enjoyed with a San Miguel. Even if there is not much happening, there is always something to see.   Caution: if you like lie-ins, you may be woken up too early by street musicians. Take the opportunity and start your day with a coffee on the square. Regular customers appreciate the location on the square, which is why the guesthouse is almost always fully booked. Double rooms are available from Euro 60 per night

Banys Orientals

Only 500 metres from exciting Rambla, in a small pedestrian zone of the old town, you will find one of the most charming hotels of the city. The building dates back to the 18th century and has 43 rooms and suites that create a nice family feeling.   The rooms are not extraordinary, but are furnished low-key. Banys Orientals is a friendly alternative to top-end hotels and hostel. Double rooms are available from 99,75 euros per night
