Enjoy the parks!

Local parks and gardens have become the lungs of the city more than ever before, so if you’re not sure where to go in Barcelona for some fresh air, these are the places to be. This way, you can enjoy spending time in peaceful green spaces without even leaving the city centre.

The city’s parks are the perfect places for anyone wanting to relax, unwind, and forget about the world around them for a little while. And while there may still be some restrictions to follow when out and about in the city, there’s no better place to sit quietly with a good book, get some exercise in the great outdoors, or simply enjoy being in nature.

Among the best parks in Barcelona, you’ll find Parque Güell, built by Antonio Gaudí, Parque de la Ciutadella, a very central and accessible spot that’s very popular with locals, and the Montjuïc area, where you’ll find a number of great parks for playing sport outdoors or switching off among the peace and quiet.

This is one of the best spots in the city, given the lack of crowds makes it the perfect place to relax while enjoying all the architecture and landscapes around you.

Hotels in Barcelona: the perfect escape

Hotel accommodation has become a real escape for many these days. And Barcelona hotels are a great way to relax and unwind whilst forgetting all your troubles.

A hotel is somewhere you can enjoy a romantic overnight escape with your partner, a place to hold business meetings and events – that comply with the regulations, of course –, places to work remotely in total peace and quiet, as well as possibly being one of the safest places in a world of COVID. As such, HCC Hotels comply with all relevant safety measures and are here to help guests enjoy a wonderful experience with friends, colleagues and relatives alike.

The best ways to enjoy Barcelona on the water

Given the global context, most of the Barcelona plans you can enjoy at the moment involve being outdoors, which is why taking to the water is such a great idea. The Catalan capital has a magnificent coastline and the perfect Mediterranean climate for enjoying the beaches and clear blue waters any time of year, whether that’s trying out some watersports, swimming, diving or anything else the coast has to offer.

One option is to go on a boat trip from the Port of Barcelona, perfect for solo travellers, families and couples. For the more adventurous, you can even try your hand at some more daring alternatives, such as parasailing, surfing, diving, kayaking, and one very popular new trend, flyboarding. 

Cycle your way through the city

If you’re not sure what to do in Barcelona, it’s worth noting the city is very bike-friendly, so cycle tourism is the perfect way to get around and see the capital whilst doing something a bit more active than the typical holiday. You’ll see plenty of clearly sign-posted areas and cycle routes for enjoying the best views of the city from a slightly different perspective.

The Ronda Verda is one route that stands out, running along the coast of Barcelona, it’s a completely flat 10k cycle path that can be enjoyed by everyone, from the total amateur to the seasoned pro. Cyclists will be able to see all the great beaches in the Catalan capital from the port to Badalona, alongside some great attractions, such as the Columbus monument, the Moll de la Fusta, Barceloneta, the Fòrum, as well as the mouth of the river Besòs.

It’s clear this year’s plans in Barcelona have more of an outdoor-emphasis than perhaps they have done in previous years. Nevertheless, getting out in the beautiful green spaces in the city, getting active and getting into the water are all unbeatable activities, whatever’s going on in the world. And for those looking for the perfect escape, whether with family, friends, a partner or alone, book your stay at one of our hotels in Barcelona and start counting down the days to your trip today.
