Tips for preparing for your trip


Flying to Bilbao

Biggest city in the Basque Country

Mediterranean climate

14 degrees

2 hours and 10 minutes

Bilbao is the largest city in the northern Spanish region of the Basque Country. It has undergone a transformation in recent years and has grown from an industrial coastal city into one of the most popular city trip destinations of Spain!

Places to visit in Bilbao

There is no shortage of art and culture in Bilbao. From the imposing Santiago Cathedral and the extraordinary Zubizuri Bridge to the number one attraction: the Guggenheim Museum. Its opening kick-started a transformation of the city that is still ongoing. The museum itself is an architectural work of art. Covered with titanium plates, the building reflects the sunlight beautifully. The Guggenheim in Bilbao features twenty galleries that are spread over 10,560 square metres. A true must-see for art, culture and architecture lovers.

Discover Bilbao

It's not all Guggenheim and art in Bilbao, the Basque food and drink are both delightful and relatively affordable. Small bites called Pintxos are typical in the region. In the picturesque old town of Bilbao, you can enjoy the Basque tapas in many local restaurants (Sidrerias). They also serve a lovely Basque white wine called Chacoli (or Txakoli) in these Sidrerias. Life is meant to be enjoyed in Bilbao!
