The Camp Nou Tour, ideal for football fans
If you like football, once in Barcelona it is almost obligatory to visit the Camp Nou, a mythical stadium where FCB (Barcelona Football Club) plays. Even if you are not a supporter of the team it is an experience for any dedicated fan of football (or soccer).
The Camp Nou Tour is one organised by the football club and allows fans of Barça or, even just the sport, to enter the stadium and discover hidden corners where you can see the press room, touch the grass on the field and more.
In today’s Barcelona City Tellers post we will discover the Camp Nou Tour, where we will provide practical information so you know what to expect when you take the tour and tell you everything you can witness in person. If you like football at all, you should take this tour.
A visit to the Barcelona stadium with the Camp Nou tour
During this tour, you will visit all the different spaces dedicated to everything FC Barcelona, such as the museum where the trophies and awards won by the club are displayed. The Barça Museum is the second most visited in Catalonia, just behind the Dalí Museum in terms of attendance figures. In fact, during 2015 it brought in more than 1.5 million people, an impressive amount even for a place dedicated to football.
During the Camp Nou Tour you will be able to visit areas in the stadium which are normally closed to the general public. The Camp Nou was established in 1957 as the official stadium of Barcelona and currently has the largest capacity in Europe as well as being the second biggest in the world.
What can you see on the Camp Nou Tour?
The Camp Nou Tour starts with an audioguided tour of the Barça stadium, during which visitors can see the changing rooms and the route the players take to get out on to the field. On this tour you will actually be able to get out and walk on the Camp Nou field itself, an incredible experience for football fans.
You will also have the ability to see the presidential box, the player’s bench as well as the aforementioned press room, a place you have surely seen more than once from when the players and managers are interview on television.
After this part of the Camp Nou Tour you enter the FC Barcelona Museum, a space which pays homage to the history of the club as well as the many titles which have been won by this first division club. Here you can chart the trajectory of the club’s more than one hundred year history through photographs, memories and images which became legendary in their time.
In addition, you will also get to see up close all the trophies, cups and awards which the Barça team have won throughout their history.
Our tips for discovering this tour
- To get the most out of this tour, we recommend that, as there are professional guides offered, if you are able to afford it, you pay for an audioguide. The experience is much richer and more interesting with an audioguide which will reveal the secrets and details of FCB you haven’t heard before.
- We recommend that, if you are visiting Barcelona for several days, try doing the week day tour as the crowds are much busier on Saturdays and Sundays and it won’t be as comfortable visiting all the facilities. Going on weekdays at noon or late afternoon will allow you to fully enjoy this tour in a quieter environment.
- If you want to avoid queues, we also advise you book early online so that you can enter directly without having to wait at the box office.
