What to do in Barcelona?

Discover exciting fringe programmes and a multitude of outstanding sights in Barcelona. The Catalan capital offers you many options to ensure a memorable convention, seminar or incentive trip.

Explore Barcelona

Does your event programme allow a little time to explore the city? Feel the pulse of this northern Spanish metropolis. Whether you take a stroll along the waterfront or over the lovely Rambla. The famous thoroughfare between the Plaça de Catalunya and Port Vell is always worth a visit. Taste the tapas in one of the small restaurants, washed down with a glass of fine Spanish wine. And in no time, you will have captured the essence of the easy-going Spanish lifestyle. By the way, the entrance to the Mercat de la Boqueria market hall is directly off La Rambla, and well worth a visit for its striking steel and glass construction alone. Inside, you will find countless market stalls offering everything the culinary heart could desire.

Sights to see

One of the city's best-known sons is the architect Antoni Gaudí. We are all familiar with his buildings. The famous Sagrada Familia church is one of the city's most important landmarks, as is Park Güell with its richly adorned and colourful mosaics. And last but not least, Casa Mila on Passeig de Gràcia No. 92. Its irregular façade and sinuously curved balconies catch the eye from afar. One of the apartments as well as the top floor and roof terrace can be visited.

Whether you opt to visit one of Gaudí's masterpieces or simply wish to soak up the Spanish sun – Barcelona offers you a wealth of options for a fringe programme during your convention, trade fair, conference or meeting.
