See Europe's largest football stadium, where Messi will captivate everyone
With almost 100,000 seats, the largest stadium in Europe, Camp Nou, is almost always fully booked for FC Barcelona home games. Tickets for a tour of the football stadium are no less popular. Feel the tingling on your skin and experience the greatest highlights in the FC Barcelona stadium.
The absolute highlight is to see FC Barcelona play once at Camp Nou. Watch Messi manoeuvre the ball into the opponent's goal at the legendary Camp Nou. Plan your visit to FC Barcelona well in advance. Because the home team of Camp Nou counts the largest fan community in the world. Many tickets to the atmospheric football matches do not even make it onto the open market. Are you interested in one of the coveted tickets? Take advantage of online sales and buy football tickets several months in advance. If you want to book at short notice, you can have bad luck, because locals enjoy a pre-emptive right to buy the popular tickets for Camp Nou. Small fun fact: To get a season ticket, club members currently have to wait about 42 years.
The stadium's "Camp Nou Experience" museum is an absolute top highlight not only for football fans. The FC Barcelona museum is visited by 1.2 million people every year. Spread over an area of around 3,500m², the guest learns everything there is to know about Barça. On the different floors you will travel through the history of the legendary Spanish football club. Experience the jubilation of the club's most important victories and matches and marvel at the relics of former top players and top coaches. The highlight of the tour through the museum of Camp Nou, are the exhibited jerseys and shoes of former and current players. In addition, trophies and prizes from over 100 years of club history are presented in a 50-metre long showcase. The emotions that the fans associate with their club are more than evident here, allowing every visitor to become a Barça fan.
Who wouldn't want to sit on the bench where Barcelona's substitutes are waiting for their turn on the lush green lawn of Camp Nous? Who hasn't wanted to step on the grass through the catacombs like a real football star? Who doesn't dream of visiting the changing room where Messi, Ronaldinho or the world famous Cruyff celebrated and still celebrate their victories? On a tour through Camp Nou you have the chance to make your dreams come true. The tour of the stadium takes visitors into the changing rooms of the football stars, through the catacombs to the pitch and the bench at the edge of the field, normally reserved for substitutes and coaching staff. You might even meet the world footballer Lionel Messi or the German goalkeeper Marc-André ter Stegen, who has been under contract with FC Barcelona since July 2014.
It is hard to believe, but the largest football stadium in Europe has its own small chapel. Before the start of a big game, FC Barcelona players can pray to a black Madonna. Even a wedding is possible in the chapel of Camp Noe since 2014. But if you want to make your dream of taking your wedding vows in the FC Barcelona stadium come true, you have to dig deep into your wallet. For those who do not want to step directly in front of the altar, the visit of the small chapel of the stadium will still be a small highlight. I promise.
The best time to visit Camp Nou is before 11.00 or after 16.00. Then the stadium is no longer so crowded and you save yourself the long lines at the entrance. During the months of June and July FC Barcelona is on summer break and you can visit the stadium daily during opening hours. On match days, Camp Nou closes for visitors three hours before the start of the match. During special matches, e.g. Campions League matches, the stadium is closed to visitors the day before. Check the FC Barcelona website before your visit, as there are always last-minute changes in the stadium.
The Camp Nou tour is not a guided tour. You will discover the stadium with the press gallery, the chapel, the players' tunnel and the museum on your own. At your own path, you'll make your way through the impulsive stadium and the in-house museum, where you can take a look behind the scenes of the game. Those who do not want to miss out on interesting background knowledge will receive an audio guide upon entry. This option is optional and costs 5,00€ extra. The audio guide is of course also available in different languages.
The stadium itself does not offer guided tours. A guided tour is nevertheless possible with private guides. A guided tour through and around the area of Camp Nou is specially recommendable if one wants to get some exciting background information about Camp Nou and the FC Barcelona and also wants to admire one or two sightseeings of Barcelona on the way to the stadium. Such a tour not only visits the stadium itself, but also the surrounding areas, such as the Mini Estadi, which has served as the home stadium of the reserve team since 1982. Adjacent to it is also La Masia, an 18th century farmhouse that housed the FC Barcelona Youth Academy between 1979 and 2011 and even helped football legends such as Messi and Xavi to achieve their world careers. Guided tours of this kind must be booked in advance.
If one wants to visit the Camp Nou spontaneously, one has to expect long waiting times of up to two hours at the box office. If you are only in Barcelona for a short city trip, you have to use every precious minute - waiting time is undesirable. Be sure to book your tickets for Camp Nou in advance. With these tickets you get priority admission and do not have to queue. The tickets cost around 28.00 and are only slightly more expensive than the ticket price on site. Children, students and senior citizens enjoy reduced admission.
Camp Nou is the largest football stadium in Europe, the largest club stadium in the world and has much more to offer than just a magnificent view from the spectator stands. For a tour through and around the stadium you should plan at least half a day. If one has already booked a ticket in advance, one saves long waiting times in front of the entrance. Many of the offered tours last about 3.5 hours, plus of course the arrival and departure to the stadium and a short break with a cool drink. When you discover the stadium on your own, you simply take as much time as you like. But die-hard Barca fans can spend several hours alone in the museum "Camp Nou Experience". Not to mention the huge Barcelona Shop, which is waiting for the football fans as a closing.
Camp Nou is located in the Les Corts district on the street Carrer d Aristides Maillol. The fastest and cheapest way to get to Camp Nou is by public transport. It is best to take the blue line L5 or the orange line L3, in each case to the stop "Collblanc". From there it is only a 5-10 minute walk to the stadium. The way is easy to find because it is signposted. You should avoid travelling by car. There are only a few parking spaces at the stadium, which are also very expensive. If you cannot do without it, take exit 14.
