Things to do in Barcelona with kids

Barcelona with children

Finding things to do in Barcelona with kids doesn’t have to be difficult! Barcelona is a very child-friendly city, and even most of its sites are attractive for kids. However, it is important to take into account that children aren’t as resistant to long sightseeing days as adults are. This is why it’s always a good idea to visit the sites in the morning, and plan a family activity in the afternoon.

Today we want to share with you the most fun activities in Barcelona to do with your kids. I hope you enjoy our selection!

Family activities in Barcelona: Hot chocolate and churrosHere are our favorite family activities in barcelona:

Hot Chocolate and Churros. One of our favorite things to do in Barcelona with children is taking them to Petritxol street, a street famous for their hot chocolate and churros cafés. Avoid the weekends if you don’t want to have to stand outside in line to get a table, or just arrive a before 5pm (when locals tend to start arriving). Order a hot chocolate with whipped cream on top (it’s called a “Swiss”) and a plate churros, and have fun dipping them into the chocolate. And don’t worry if everything pours off the cup: it’s a bit messy, but it’s part of the fun!

Things to do in Barcelona with kids: Feeding the dovesAnimal activities. There are plenty of family activities in Barcelona related to animals: you can take them to the zoo or to the aquarium, feed the doves in Plaça Catalunya or if you don’t mind going off the beathen path, have them riding a ponny at the Parc de l’Oreneta (weekends only).

Museums. Visiting museums in Barcelona with children is not only possible, but also fun. There are lots of kid friendly Barcelona cultural activities, and many art museums such as the Miro or the Caixaforum organize family activities in the weekends. And our two city science museums are also great for kids: Cosmocaixa is in the uptown, and Museu Blau is located in the Forum area. The Museum of Music is also cool, too.

Barcelona with Children: going to the AquariumClimbing. Do your kids love climbing stairs and taking elevators to high places? If so, make sure to get tickets for the elevator when you visit the Sagrada Familia church. A cheaper alternative is the elevator that takes you to the rooftop of the Cathedral of St. Eulàlia, or even the one inside the Columbus statue at the end of La Rambla.

Parks. Park Guell wasn’t designed to be a normal park, so don’t expect it to be full of playgrounds when you visit it (there are some, but they aren’t easy to find as they aren’t located near the monumental area). Instead, take your kids to Parc de la Ciutadella. If they fancy a longish subway ride, the playgrounds of Parc de Diagonal Mar are lots of fun.
