Barcelona
Barcelona is Spain's second largest city, situated on the Mediterranean coast which boasts one of Europe's busiest ports. A bilingual city, Barcelona has two official languages, Spanish and Catalan. Some of Barcelona's top attractions include the famous Gothic Quarter, where many buildings date back to medieval times. In the Quarter you will find the world renowned Sagrada Família, which is the most visited monument in Spain. It has been under construction for over 100 years. Works by Antoni Gaudí can be found all over the city in places such as Park Güell, Casa Batlló, Casa Milà and Casa Vicens. These are just a few of the many things to see in Barcelona, along with the beaches, parks, museums and historical buildings. There is no better way than to fly with Austrian Airlines to Barcelona, a beautiful city rich in culture, architecture, art and history.

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.

Roca Moo
Ten years and not a bit tired! Designed by architect Juli Capella and interior designers Sandra Tarruella and Isabel Lopéz Hotel Omm in the Paseo de Gracia district celebrates the year 2013 extensively: with a freshly renovated restaurant and a new bar. The restaurant Roca Moo is now characterised by its open spaces, combing kitchen and guest room. In the middle you'll find a big counter. And on the lower ground (which also functions as the hotel lobby), the guests are now sitting at the new Roca-Bar - to have a cocktail or snack in-between. The creators of Roca are (the name already gives it away) the infamous Roca brothers Joan, Josep and Jordi, known for their restaurant El Cellar de Can Roca in Girona (99 kilometres away from Barcelona - also highly recommended!). In the kitchen of the Rocas' Barcelona restaurant the Michelin-starred chef Felip Llufriu swings the cooking spoon. He serves traditional, Catalan dishes and prepares them in front of the guests' eyes. We congratulate the Rocas for their anniversary gift!
