Barcelona 2023/24

In Barcelona, celebrating New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day is an unforgettable experience filled with sun, fireworks, and a vibrant atmosphere. One of the highlights is definitely watching the spectacular fireworks show at Montjuïc from Plaza Espanya.

Here’s my account of three days full of celebrations and relaxed moments in this wonderful city.

Day 1: Arrival and City Exploration

Upon arriving in Barcelona, I immediately felt the energy and charm of the city again. I truly love this city and the people living there. I was here already so often but love it each time like it’s my first. The sun greeted us as we reached our apartment in the heart of the city. A walk along the Las Ramblas is always our first thing to do. The streets are so alive with activity, and the diversity of people and cultures is always fascinating.

In the evening, we made our way to Plaza Espanya, where the New Year’s Eve celebrations were. The streets were filled with people coming together to welcome the new year. The fireworks over Plaza Espanya were breathtaking, marking the beginning of an unforgettable New Year’s Eve.

After the fireworks, we went to the Tapas Bars in the Barceloneta neighborhood. You are really grateful to be sharing this special moment together in such a beautiful city.

Day 2: Relaxed New Year, Cultural Experiences and Culinary Delights

New Year’s Day began with a leisurely run and walk along the Barceloneta beach, where we enjoyed the first hours of the new year. The city felt calm and peaceful, and we took the opportunity to enjoy the atmosphere.

After a lunch at a beachside café, we just enjoyed the city for the rest of the day.

In the evening we had a delicious dinner. I love Catalan cuisine! It offeres a wealth of flavors and tastes. :-)

Day 3: Farewell to Barcelona

Unfortunately right after breakfast we headed to the airport to leave Barcelona. As I bid farewell to this fascinating city, I felt grateful for the unforgettable memories and looked forward to returning soon. :-D

Visiting Barcelona over New Year’s was an experience we will never forget and will immediately repeat this year! The sun, the fireworks, and the vibrant atmosphere made it worth it and left a lasting impression in our heart. Best way to start a new year!
