Holy Week with children in Barcelona

Holy Week with children in Barcelona

As it is described on Wikipedia, “Holy Week is the annual Christian commemoration of the Passion, Death and Resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth.”

Due to the Holy Week, which in Spain  is celebrated from March 25th to April 1st this year, schools stop, children have vacations and many of the parents do not waste the opportunity to make a family trip, escaping the daily routine.

Last year we made a post about what to do in Barcelona with children during the Easter, this year we have made another post with original plans in Barcelona for you to enjoy both adults and children:

Do you remember the Cluedo board game? You had to find out who murdered Dr. Black and any of the players could be the killer. This game is not exactly the same, but it has that same spirit of investigation. You can make groups of maximum 5 people who will act as detectives and will have 60 minutes to leave the room and discover the weapon and the killer of the billionaire Marie de Meauconduits. I hope it does not rain in Barcelona in those days, but if it does, this is an ideal plan…!

Rates and times (from 3pm to 9pm from Monday to Thursday and from 4pm to 10pm Friday, Saturday and Sunday) – VAT included

Team of 5 – € 20 / player

Ride on the replica of the first plane that made a trip from Barcelona to Madrid, on the roller coaster that is higher than 500m, on the Wheel or on the Hurricane, where you experience 360º turns, to visit the terrifying Krüeger Hotel… are some of the activities you can do in one of the oldest amusement parks in the world.
