Barcelona is an incredible city, with a lot to see and do, and one of the favorite destinations for families, as it offers multiple plans to discover the city with children. In this post, we tell you which ones you can’t miss.
Tibidabo Amusement Park
Do you want to contemplate the best views of Barcelona while having a great time in one of the oldest theme parks in Europe? Then you must visit Tibidabo, located on the mountain of the same name. This is a perfect family plan, since here you will find attractions for all tastes and ages, from viewpoints to arcades, roller coasters, water rides or its iconic Ferris wheel. Fun is guaranteed! Check the schedules and rates on their official website.
Another ideal option to spend an entertaining day with children is to visit the CosmoCaixa, an interactive science museum designed to have fun learning. In addition to incredible exhibitions and experiments, you can also enjoy the “Toca Toca” experience, with real animals, discover its spectacular planetarium, explore its flooded forest and much more. It is open every day from 10 AM to 8 PM and the entrance fee is 6€.
Parks and natural spaces
Enjoying nature in Barcelona is also a great family plan, and the city is full of incredible parks from which to enjoy the outdoors. The mountain of Montjüic has extraordinary green areas and beautiful views of the city, and climbing its cable car is quite an experience. On the other hand, the Pegaso Park, the Castell de l’Oreneta Park or the Horta Labyrinth Park are also some of our favorites.
Aquarium and Zoo
Did you know that in Barcelona you can see sharks, lions, giraffes, and penguins without leaving the city? Barcelona’s Aquari has 35 aquariums and 11,000 specimens of 450 different species, and the Zoo has more than 7,000 specimens of 400 kinds. Both are playful and educational places where the little ones will have a great time seeing the animals up close and learning about them. Undoubtedly, an activity that cannot be missing in your itinerary.
Big Fun Museum
If you want to spend a wonderful day, the Big Fun Museum, located right in the center of Barcelona, is the best option. Both young and old can enjoy ball pools, mazes, optical illusions and scenarios as peculiar as curious. It is an ideal plan for families, especially during the hot summer days or when you want to take shelter from the cold or rain and have a great time. Get your tickets here.
