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.

EAT in Barcelona

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.

Bar Ra

Why everyone is attracted to the Ra Bar remains a mystery. Even if you are lucky enough to get a table on their terrace you still won't understand their secret of attraction. The palm trees build a kind of ailantery; but you still won't be able to ignore the mid-sized car park facing the terrace. However, everyone wants to be here and enjoy a multi-cultural appetizer.   The service is as relaxed as the colourful guests. Everything takes its time here, except for the closing of the terrace when everyone tries to move inside into the tiny room to enjoy one last beer before leaving. Tip: The bar is right behind the market La Bouqueria. It is the perfect location to enjoy breakfast after visiting the market.

Silenus

Silenus is a meeting point for artists and intellectual of the city to enjoy an extraordinary dinner. The restaurant hides behind a Jugendstil door and combines the comforts of a coffee house with an excellent gourmet kitchen.   The creativity of the Raval area is mirrored in the beautiful food served in this place. Tip: Even though it tastes extraordinarily, make sure you leave some room for dessert. Every single item is a small piece of art that will that will lift you into chocolate heaven.

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.

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

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

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!

Las Ramblas

We can guarantee you this - on this walk, you won't be able to relax at all. The Rambla is the shopping street of Barcelona and very busy indeed. You can find anything but tranquillity on the street. Start your walk at the seafront. You will find many souvenir and postcard shops. Continuing this way, you'll meet the artists that paint tourists and tourist traps. Afterwards, you'll get to the flower stands and the sad small animals in cages that hope to be purchased and released by someone who takes pity on them. You'll be entertained by pantomimes, musicians and dancers.   You can easily spend and lose your money on Rambla and that not only by your own free will - so be careful. Tip: Rambla is a must, however bring little cash and certainly don't bring your favourite handbag along.

SHOPPING in Barcelona

Shopping in Barcelona
Herbolari Llansa

If you are suffering from a headache after a long night out or feel a cold coming on, then Señora Francesca Ubach knows what to do- what you need is an extra large portion of herbs. The Señora took over the shop from her grandfather who opened Herbolari Llansa in 1907. He would be happy to know that his granddaughter left the interior exactly the way it was.   The same goes for the herbs - what worked back in the day still works today. Nevertheless, time has not stood still at Herbolari Llansa. The selection has been expanded and adjusted to today's modern needs. Favourite topic of the owner? Natural cosmetics, aroma-therapy, tees and their effect, vitamins and diets, oils and more.

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.

Papabubble

Probably the sweetest shop in the world and a must-visit for people with a sweet tooth. The staff wears hats and headbands made of sugar only on the website and does not exclusively eat caramel sushi; however, these people are real artists with sugar.   The colourful and tempting bonbons are presented in a stylish silver bag. Beautiful to look at, but they only last for a short time. Better to buy them in a jewellery glass or trial tube as this way, you get a lot more.   The bonbons are funny and colourful but a lot more impressive are the lollipops and ring fingers. A sweet testimony to your love with an expiry date. At Papabubble they are now working with 30 different flavours; everything is colourful and wonderful!
