Primer Bany de l’Any

At Sant Sebastià, the New Year 2014 begins with a crazy tradition; Around 400 people take their first bath into the 14 degrees cold sea. Can you imagine? 14 degrees :-o ? Believe me!! This tradition is called Primer Bany de L’Any and takes place every year, organized by the Club Natacio Atletic Barcelona. It’s a sports centre at San Sebastia beach, which offers swimming pools and a gym.

Although it’s winter and the sea is freaking cold, every year enough crazy people participate in this established tradition. At 12.00 noon the crowd wades shivery into the cold sea to take the bath together. Everybody who is brave enough can participate for free. You simply can go there and take your first bath in Barcelona’s sea. For those who are interested in a hot shower and a diploma afterwards; you can register at the club house to get both.

The first swim of the year took place in 1996, hence in 2014 it’s already the 18th edition. Following you can find a video from the first swim of last year. Although, you might not understand what they say, it give you a nice first impression of this freaky activity.

Lockers Barcelona – don’t get bothered with your luggage!

luggage

An easy solution for your luggage!

Most of you should know this problem: On the last day of your stay you are standing at 10 or 11 am in front of your hotel or apartment in Barcelona with your suitcases and bags and don't know what to do in the next couple of hours until you have to go to the airport or  train station. Just waiting in a café for the hours passing by is not a good idea - walking around Barcelona with all your luggage trying to make the most of your last hours neither. (more...)

Here is another crazy tradition of Barcelona: The Christmas Day harbour swim Again this year - on Christmas day -  hundreds of brave men (and women) will dive into the freezing sea in Barcelona's port at la Rambla del Mar. Having a swim in the around 13 degrees cold water sounds quite crazy - but it is one of Barcelona's oldest sporting traditions (and also one of the oldest in whole Europe). Every year on the 25th of December a 200 m open water swimming race takes place in the harbour of Barcelona, called "Copa Nadal". christmas_swim_barcelona (more...)

I have a nice idea for you: L'Aquarium Barcelona barcelona_aquarium The Aquarium of Barcelona is located directly at the port, right next to the IMax 3D Cinema (btw another possibilty for a rainy autumn day!) and the Maremagnum Shopping  mall (look.. another one and even open on Sundays and bank holidays!!).
