Park Güell for kids

Barcelona for kids. The main entrance of the Park Güell, with ceramic mosaics and columns.

The Park Güell is the most popular monument in Barcelona for kids. Why? Because is a garden took from a fantasy film in which time seems to have stopped. Hänsel & Gretel was the inspiration for Antoni Gaudí. Feel as if you were walking through the fairy tale!

The Guard House by Gaudi at the Park Guell, and Barcelona skyline at the background
The Park Güell is on a hill, so the panoramic views of Barcelona are amazing.

With this interactive activity, the whole family can learn about Gaudí and Barcelona. This educational guided tour is conceived to capture the attention and promote the participation of the youngest ones: kids and teens.

Sustainability, teamwork, friendship, love of nature, and the history of Barcelona and Antoni Gaudí are some of the topics that we can discuss during the tour. Even for the youngest children from 3 to 6 years old, the shapes and colors of the architecture of the Park Güell can be attractive and motivating.

Look carefully. The mosaic is made with broken pieces of ceramic. Gaudí was already recycling more than 100 years ago!

This monument is the perfect place to understand how relevant it was to Gaudí the relationship between art and nature. Gaudi’s architecture is much more than beautiful. Together we will discover what is so special about this park and why it is a World Heritage Site. Barcelona is an ideal city for children, and if you come with your family you can’t miss Park Güell.

Any of the visits I propose can be adapted for a child or teenager audience. I also provide the support material to motivate their creativity and participation. The involvement of children is essential for them to have fun, learn and at the same time live a beautiful experience with their family. I will feel fulfilled If they take home a great memory of their visit to Barcelona.

In total there are 17 hectares = 42 acres of green area.  But the monumental area is small and the visit usually takes 1 – 2 hours.

Güell is a Catalan surname and is pronounced: [ɡweʎ] something like “WEYL”.

It is in the foothills of Collserola, the limits of Barcelona. You can get there by public transport, but it is complicated and slow. I recommend you go by cab. From the center, it can cost around 12€, and it fits 4 people.

From Park Güell the Sagrada Família is 5-10 minutes by cab (7€ approx) and 30 minutes walking. There is no direct connection by public transport.

The price of this tour is starting at 210€. The prices are for your total party, not per person. Entrance fees or other extra expenses (like food, drinks, or transport) are not included. Because each visit is customized contact me for a precise budget.
