Child friendly Barcelona - advice barcelona family travelers

The family traveler

Travelling with Children

Are you travelling together with your family?
If you are bringing the whole family to Barcelona, the most important thing is to find something fun for all members of the family so that everyone returns home happy and satisfied.

Activities for the family in Barcelona

There are a lot of things to do for the family so your children will surely enjoy Barcelona as well. Visit the zoo, amusement parks and of course FC Barcelona.

Accommodation for the family

If you are travelling with small children and a baby carriage, I recommend that you choose a hotel, or even better, an apartment that is as central as possible. Many of Barcelona's metro stops are still not equipped with an elevator or an escalator so it may be a bit tricky to get around. If you have older children you can stay almost anywhere in Barcelona.

Renting an apartment is more comfortable and makes things much easier especially if your budget does not allow you to eat in a restaurant every day.

Ciutadella Apartments

Very nice apartments near the beaches of Barcelona. They offer non-smoking family rooms for up to 10 people. Located close to the Zoo and with a metro station around the corner.
