Nostalgic amusement park on Tibidabo hill, Barcelona

You can reach the top of the hill via a tram and funicular. The first part from the city center we did by foot but this was a bit underestimated, we would recommend to take the tram or taxi. The last part we did by funicular. Once at the top, you have spectacular views of Barcelona city, the beach, port and airport.

The Tibidabo amusement park was established in 1889. There are no modern rides, every attraction is decades old and adds to the ambiance. We took some very interesting pictures but didn’t fancy a ride.

Je kan de top van de heuvel bereiken per tram en funiculaire. Het eerste gedeelte van uit het stadscentrum deden we te voet. Het was een lange wandeling die we toch wat onderschat hebben. We raden aan de tram of een taxi te nemen. Eens boven heb je spectaculaire zichten over Barcelona stad, het strand, de haven en de luchthaven. 

Het Tibidabo pretpark werd opgericht in 1889. Er zijn geen moderne attracties, alles is tientallen jaren oud wat bijdraagt aan het klassieke thema. We trokken enkele interessante foto’s maar gingen niet in de attracties.

  1. The views are spectacular! That one building looks like a rocket! I think my favorite is #4, the ferris wheel in front of the sea. Also my attention goes to that beautiful church in the background in the first picture. Looks like Jesus is watching over it all.
