What many people tend to forget is that Spain offers more than a 2-week summer vacation. Spanish cities are excellent for a weekend getaway! Opt for a city break in one of the busy cities, go hiking in the Sierra Nevada or choose to laze away a few days at the beach! Here are a few recommendations:


The capital of Spain is famous for its museums. These include the Prado museum, the Museo Reina Sofía and the Thyssen-Bornemisza. Spain's largest park, the Retiro Park, is also a very nice attraction. Furthermore, you will visit a lot of architecture during your city break in Madrid. What you should definitely not skip is Mercado de San Miguel, where you can choose from thousands of delicious snacks. And do you like to party? Then Madrid is the place to be!


In Barcelona you can go in all directions during your city break! Visit the Sagrada Família, Gaudí´s Parc Güell or one of the many museums with famous beautiful works. Barcelona is also a true paradise for the shopaholics among us! And if you are tired of the hustle and bustle of the city for a while, just head to the beach!


Seville, the city of hot summers and mild winters. You'll find everything here for an unforgettable city break! Spain's fourth largest city is teeming with sights. Royal palaces, ancient cathedrals, flamenco bars but also many modern buildings. Seville is the capital of southern Spain and is known for its artistic, cultural characteristics and the warm hospitality of the ´Sevillanos´.


In this city bordering the sea there is a lot of modern architecture! There is also a southern European atmosphere. All year round you can enjoy beautiful weather, various meusea, different historical and modern buildings and of course the very best paella! Also in this city every year in March "Las Fallas" take place. This is a big celebration honoring the feast day of St. Joseph.

Of course, there are many other great Spanish cities for a city break in Spain. For example, visit Las Palmas, the capital of the Canary Islands. It is also fun to visit Pamplona. This is just a little bit different because of its French and Basque influences. Other impressive and fun Spanish cities are Salamanca, Tenerife, Cadiz or Alicante.
