About Matt K
Lives in Barcelona, Spain
Since Sep. 2014
25-34 year old male
Since 2010 I am living in Barcelona, Catalonia, and it became my home from the very first beginning. Barcelona is a very beautiful, safe, and inspiring city that it's really enjoyable for every kind of traveler. I enjoy playing beach volleyball right after work with my friends, and the endless things you can do all over Catalonia and surroundings.
Fountains, Points of Interest & Landmarks
Arenas & Stadiums
Game & Entertainment Centres, Speciality Museums
Bogatell Beach is the best beach in Barcelona for family fun. Here, the kids have plenty of space to swim, play, and run around. And if their parents fancy a coffee, the nearby beach bars - called "chiringuitos" - offer every type of caffeine hit you could need.
The Magic Fountain is famous for its stunning water, sound, and light show, choreographed to take place in time to old classic songs, including ´Barcelona´ by Queen, and ´Montserrat´. It's a great evening activity for the whole family to ´wow´ over together.
This city-center park has a small lake at its center, where you can rent a boat - always a guaranteed child-pleaser! Plus, a little-known fact about the fence around Parc de la Ciutadella is that it was the very first work by famous Catalan architect, Antonio Gaudi. This makes it a must-visit for parents too!
Parc del Laberint d'Horta park is a hidden gem that your whole family will love. It contains a wonderful labyrinth at its very center, plus small fountains and more to discover together.
If your family likes football then you simply cannot miss Camp Nou. The biggest stadium in Europe has its very own museum, a high-quality multimedia section, and a special area dedicated to the world's best player, Lionel Messi.
Montjuic Castle is a fascinating place to visit for young and old alike - thanks to its combination of great views over Barcelona and a museum dedicated to explaining its long and often gruesome history.
Besides offering one of the most beautiful views over Barcelona (with the sea in the background), Tibidabo is also home to a full-size theme-park, where you and your family can enjoy a host of rides and attractions.
Love being creative? The Museum of Ideas and Inventions is a fun spot for the whole family to enjoy, where you can explore three different (and equally wacky) sections: ´Limitless Society´, ´Reflectionarium´, and last but not least, ´Corner of the Absurd´. Sounds intriguing doesn't it?
The biggest miniature park in the world, Catalonia in Miniature is an experience to delight the whole family. Take the train and go for a ride through the whole of Catalonia in one afternoon!
Located right next to the sea itself, the Barcelona Aquarium is home to a wide range of sea animals - including the infamous great white shark - that you can wonder at together. Its displays are also educational yet interesting, making it a great experience for big kids and little kids alike.
