Additional Leisure Options in Catalonia

Catalonia has much to offer. Discover the Costa Brava with picturesque fishing villages, bays and endless sandy beaches. Almost untouched natural landscapes offer the lonely mountains of the Catalan Pyrenees as well as the estuaries of the major rivers on the Mediterranean coast. Castles, monasteries and monuments from the Roman era are among the most beautiful in Europe.

Catalonia is a country for active holiday makers. Hikers, canoeists, climbers, mountain bikers, cyclists, hang gliders, para gliders and skiers find ideal conditions in the Catalan Pyrenees. Divers, sailors, wind and sky surfers get their money's worth on the Costa Brava.

Last but not least, the bustling metropolis of Barcelona or the medieval towns of Girona and Figueres with their elegant shops, colourful markets and diverse attractions are ideal for a city tour. A visit to the Theatre Museum Dalí in Figueres is almost "a must" for every visitor to Catalonia.

Good transport connections and the dense network of all types of accommodation make a journey through Catalonia a pleasure. Culinary delights also await you. Within Spain, Catalan cuisine is considered to be particularly versatile and the local wine and cava varieties match up well against international comparisons. The Catalans have preserved their traditions dating back to the Middle Ages. A visit to one of the many colourful festivals makes a perfect stay in Catalonia!
