Barcelona

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.

Toc

If you prefer eating at home with friends, you will feel comfortable in this restaurant with a living room atmosphere. The best part is that these friends cook amazingly well and certainly do not produce plain ordinary dishes. Try the fois gras with fresh figs, fried pigeon or tuna with tomato ravioli.   This Catalonian kitchen is modern and affordable. The huge lamp shades and dark wood create a 80s ambience - without the disco though.

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.

Tapas 24

The small tapas bar pays homage to the traditional ancestral eatery where Catalonians meet to gossip while eating a snack. Tapas 24 is a modern variation that attracts young people from all over town.   If you like lively and authentic places, you will enjoy spending time here. It does not matter if you show up for a coffee, a warm breakfast or a large portion of tapas. You can satisfy your hunger any time as the kitchen is open from 9 in the morning to midnight.

SIGHTS in Barcelona

Sights in Barcelona
La Ciutadella

If you are hanging out at the park of La Ciutadella, you will forget that you are actually in a city. A small lake ideal for canoeing, a grotesque fountain that Gaudi co-created and endless peace. Barcelonans love this green centre of tranquillity that is situated where once stood the citadel of Felipe V.   The park was opened in 1870 and hosted the world exhibition in 1888. Today, the museum exhibits modern art and there is also a zoo. A bizarre piece of trivia is that they used to use parrots to keep away the pigeons. Today, no pigeon can be found in proximity of this park. However, the parrots with their green feathers are numerous and cheeky, flying from one palm tree to the next and back.

Drassanes

Creativity has no place in the underground - not true. At least in Barcelona. That becomes perfectly clear when entering the 1,500 square metre large subway station Drassanes in Ciutat Vella. The walls are covered with white, glass-like light concrete elements that are pulled over the subterranean waiting zone like a second skin. The clean and open area seems very compact due to the evenly high walls and the enamel-like surface conveys the impression of already being in the subway. The lighting increases this impression. An that's what the two young Spanish architects Eduardo Gutiérrez Munné and Jordi Fernández Río wanted to achieve. Because to their mind, the subway itself is everything needed at this place.   A special granulate material in the white floor provides for suspension of the vibrations. You should check this on the spot by all means!

MACBA

Barcelona had to wait a very long time for its first contemporary and international art museum. Only in 1995, the MACBA was opened in the Raval district. Architect Richard Meier designed this pure and cold building in white creating a contrast to the rest of rather dark Raval. Some see this as a true highlight, while others rate it a little over the top. Most of the locals, however, enjoy the building. On the square in front of the building you'll find skaters and tourists who are interested in culture. The art in the Gammel district contributed to the image of El Raval being the creative and alternative district. At the MACBA, you'll find different exhibitions of various famous artists, including sculptors, painters or video artists.

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.

La Florida

Don't be scared off by the name: If in the morning, you don't remember whether you are staying in a hotel or a castle, then you are in the La Florida. The grand hotel does not hold back with luxury and has been the accommodation of choice for the rich and beautiful.   Service and rooms are top class since the early 20th century. A highlight is the generous private terrace that provides great views of the city. In addition, you'll have a beautiful spa area for relaxing. Double rooms are available from Euro 227 per night.

The five Rooms

Yessica had to have this apartment. But because of its 400 square metres, it was just a little too big for one person and so she decided to transform it into a small hotel. How you do that? You take 5 large rooms, furbish them stylishly and wait until a traveller magazine mentions it alongside the luxury hotels of the city.   If you are staying at Yessica, it is like you are staying with a friend who is happy to provide you with all kinds of insider tips that you won't find in any guide book. Double rooms are available from Euro 135 per night

Jeanne Weis

Jeanne Weis attempts an experiment that cannot fail: she combines beautiful African textiles with modern European cuts. The idea, she says, is not that everyone is dressed like an African, but that there is more colour in the wardrobes of the European households.   If you like sewing, you can also purchase the textiles by the metre and tailor your own African dream. If you have never tried, you should give it a go anyway- the outcome won't matter that much, as everyone will be starring at the colour not the tailoring.

Zeta

Happy tall day. That is the philosophy of the designer team that a few years ago started to transform everyday items into exciting home accessories. In Zeta a strainer becomes a lamp shade and an iron chair turns into comfortable padded armchair.   The old-turn-into-new-principle is so successful that Zeta now offers an entire furniture collection. The waiting times for your orders are not long.

Enric Rovira

The name Rovira is widely known in Barcelona. Father Pedro runs a patisserie in the heart of the city, his son Enri creates art works made of chocolate, like Dali did with his paintings. One of his first chocolate masterpieces was the facade mosaic by Catalan architect Gaudi. This was his breakthrough. Today he supports young artists himself and translates their concepts into chocolate. In doing so he does not only focuses on the taste but also on the form. Bilious green ginger chocolate and orange cocoa corn mixtures - which do not appear tasty at first sight - bear witness of that. All chocolates are produced without any preservatives. If you fancy even more chocolate, then you should visit the chocolate museum near the Parliament afterwards!
