You may think that during the shorter, colder, darker days of winter, it’s better to stay indoors all cosy and warm. Barcelona does get a little chilly during the winter months, but that doesn’t mean that the sun never shines. In fact, I’m pretty sure that today is the first “rainy” day we’ve had since the middle of November!
So, if you’re prepared to venture out and you’re looking for something to do in this amazing city, why not make the most of a clear, dry day and head to the Parc del Fòrum for a breath of fresh air?
The first half of November 2011 was wet and dull, but as soon as the sun put his hat back on the Fòrum came to life again with individuals, couples, families and groups of friends making the most of the park’s vast open spaces and fantastic sea views. Most people get around on wheels, be they attached to rollerblades, skateboards, bicycles or even Segways, but walking around is just as enjoyable and invigorating.
If you’re holidaying in the city, then you can rent bicycles and tandems from several rental shops, such as www.budgetbikes.eu or www.bikerentalbarcelona.com. Or, if you’re feeling a little more adventurous try a Segway tour.
SphereMania Barcelona may be closed for winter but the Bosc Urbà (Urban Forest) adventure centre, just opposite our Sphereing runway, is still open for business, and for those chillier, perhaps wetter afternoons, the Museu Blau Natural Sciences Museum is open daily.
