Barcelona - Lust for Life
Duration of stay: 1 or 2 weeks from the 10.09. or the 15.10.2018
Catalonia's capital has always been regarded as a masterpiece of the highest quality. The buildings of Antoni Gaudí are just a few examples. But there is something else that distinguishes Barcelona from other cities: its inhabitants. They provide the magic that the architecture alone cannot create. Together they engender a passion that is absolutely unique.
The city beach, the promenade and the harbor: three hotspots that will charm you with their beauty as you relax under the rays of the sun. But that’s not all we’ve got in store: you’ll learn to conjure up delicious Spanish dishes under professional guidance, leaving you with a smile on your face for the rest of your stay. To top it off, we’ll climb the magic mountain "Tibidabo", which offers an absolute feast for the senses, not only from the top.

On the first day of the trip, you'll land at El Prat airport in Barcelona. From there it's a quick journey to the center of Barcelona and your accommodation.
In the morning, you'll begin your Spanish course. In the evening we'll welcome you officially and kick off the cultural activities. First off, we'll show you around Barrío Gotico, which starts right in front of the school.
What would Barcelona be without fresh fish, regional fruit and veg and tasty delicacies? We take you to the Boqueria, where the merchants of the city meet to sell their goods. Did you pay attention in class? Then you'll be able to save every penny!
Sparks will fly as you spend the evening being schooled on how to prepare paella and tapas properly by a chef with true passion and attention to detail. ¡Que aproveche!
We don't want to deprive you of the beauty of the city's landmark and Gaudí's masterpiece. Don's fancy queueing? Neitherdo we! VIP tickets are waiting for you!
Once your Spanish knowledge is thoroughly refreshed, we will familiarize you with the culture. Discover your passion for Catalan art in the National Museum.
It's Saturday, finally time to go to Montserrat! We'll go into the mountains together and let you in on the secrets of the monastery. And there are a few, with the Benedictine Abbey being almost 1000 years old!
After so many adventures, you've earned a little break. Relax on the beach or discover the city's diversity - left to your own devices, indulge your own tastes.
Referred to as Gaudí's hommage to nature and entirely deserving of this title, get ready for a work of art stretching over a whole mountain: Park Güell.
Have you ever tasted a Cava from Bohigas or a Vilarnau? In Barcelona, in the middle of Spain's second largest winegrowing region, a professional look at the local wine is a must. At a Vino & Cava tasting, we'll explain the history and special features of the fine wines of Catalonia!
He was one of the best artists of his time and is still regarded as one of the most talented: Pablo Ruiz Picasso. We'll familiarize you a bit more with his life and work during a trip to the Museu Picasso.
After stirring things up in the kitchen last week, today it's your turn to relax. Join us in the best tapas bar in Spain! How do we know it's the best? Our Spanish colleagues put it to the test almost every day!
We'll see you off the only way the Spanish know how: with spirit and emotion! To top off your trip, we'll take you to a flamenco show, where you'll get to know another side of Spain's musical tradition and not just be enchanted by the sounds of the guitar and castanets.
