If you long for something else after Paella, Tapas and Co. and you already like the German specialities or you have never tried them, but Germany is not a destination on your trip, then we found the perfect solution for you: a German "Biergarten", an outdoor restaurant like a terrace with benches, beer, traditional white-blue Bavarian decoration, German dishes, Dirndl and Lederhosen and sometimes live music.

On the menu you can find everything you need for a typical german experience: German Erdinger beer, Obatzda (a cream of different kinds of cheese), pretzel, a selection of sausages like Weisswurst and Rosenheimer Bratwurst sowie gekochte Schweinshaxe (pork hock) and Schnitzel (white veal escalope). Try these with the sweet mustard they serve there - unbelievable!! Apart from that they offer you delicious German desserts like the apple Strudel.
 
The prices for a dish are between 8 and 16 €, an Erdinger beer (0,5l) is 6 €.
 
The beergarden is open from Monday to Sunday from 13:00 until midnight.
 
Address:
Hotel Princesa Sofía

miba – museum of ideas and inventions barcelona

You are tired of the "normal" museum.. walking around for hours between antique art and science?
This is a completely other type of museum than the ones we are actually used to. The miba is not about antique paintings, history or old sculptures.. no.. it is about inventions to make you think, inventions to make you laugh, absurd ones, cool inventions from all over the world. It's about inventions and ideas which would make your life easier or.. just funnier.
The miba is divided into different spaces, for example the "reflexionarium". We all know this problem that it is sometimes really difficult to find a solution for an actually simple problem.  Most of the times you only need to change your perspective a bit and this is what you find in the "reflexionarium", things which will make you say "Damn right, someone just had to invent this!".  Another space is the "corner of the absurd", where you can find a selection of absurd and very funny things, even though most of them are quite useless, they will definitely put at least a smile on your face - or more than one.
Children are in general more open to new things and more creative than adults, so sure.. there is also a children area in the miba with a little inventors contest - which is a great way to stimulate their creativity.
The founder and director of the miba - and for sure a really creative señor - is every Friday morning for the "Flyday" in the miba to offer inventors and people with creative ideas guidance and to simply listen what they have to say.
The miba, where even the washrooms are designed in a special way, is a great experience for people of every age.
So get inspired - there is still so much left to invent!!
open:
Monday to Friday: 10:00 until 19:00
Saturday: 10:00 until 20:00
Sunday and Holidays: 10:00 until 14:00
prices:
normal: 7 €
kids under 12: 5 €
kids under 4: for free
students: 5 €
address:
C/ Ciutat, 7 in the old town of Barcelona
Metro: Jaume I (yellow line)Credits Pics: Logo miba miba exhibition

You are looking for an apartment Barcelona close to the miba?

Watching “Vicky Cristina Barcelona” makes me excited.. even now.. after the 10th time. The reason is simple: I love Barcelona and this movie gives everybody a really good impression of the city and its atmosphere. “I had been there.. yeah, exactly there.. look it’s Parc Güell.. I was standing.. waaaiiit.. exactly there, where Javier Bardem is now.” Thats me! 

Let’s face it.. it is kind of cool to stand at the exact same place were for example Scarlett Johansson, Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem had been standing for the movie.

Have you seen this fantastic movie made by Woody Allen? If not, I can highly recommend it.

So, what is the story? Acually I don’t want to use too many words.. you better watch the trailer:
