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.

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!

Praktik Rambla
The grand building dating from the 19th century is situated on one of the most beautiful streets of Barcelona. In 2009, the hotel underwent a complete renovation and designers combined and contrasted details of the past with contemporary stylish elements. Elegance meets style, mosaic tiles mirror light installations, playful twirl contrasts with clear furniture design.   The sum of those beautiful parts results in a charming boutique hotel. A highlight are the Jugendstill balconies, as most of the rooms have a view to the Rambla Cataluna. Would you like to experience a local habit? Then grab a drink and enjoy it on the roof terrace of a typical Catalonian inner courtyard. Small hint: There is one room overlooking the courtyard. Book it! It is the biggest and most beautiful room of the hotel. A double room is available from Euro 80 per night.

El Raval
The times where El Raval was avoided are definitely over. In previous times, there were many cheap and cheap-looking apartments that immigrants used to start off their lives abroad.   Today musicians, sprayers and artists have discovered the beauty of the darkness that surrounds this area. As an example, the mestizo sound of Manu Chao was born here. After the opening of the three temples for contemporary art MACBA, CCCB and FAD, the area was upgraded and turned into a hot spot for tourists, creative and trendy people. Meanwhile, there are many trendy and hip bars and restaurants.   Nevertheless, there are still some dodgy people, cheap restaurants and 24-hour shops that keep the area exiting and trendy. Tip: avoid the side alleys especially at night and if you are dressed smart.
