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.

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.

Lobo/El Japones
The combination of Bar Lobo/El Japonés includes everything that turns a restaurant visit into an event. The interior is very stylish, but still very comfortable. The people are cool, but very friendly. The food is creative and the offer is huge and colourful.   Upstairs they show art exhibitions that change regularly, while serving delicious Japanese food in the evenings. Speaking of evenings: don't leave this place too early on weekends and enjoy a cocktail after dinner. At midnight the restaurant turns into a disco with DJs putting on music..
