Moving around Barcelona with kids

08/02/2018, Author: Lucia Segurajauregui

Traveling with children requires more preparation and always carrying around many things. Therefore, we must take into account a comfortable mobility to better enjoy the journey.

Undoubtedly, the bus is the most practical means of transport for traveling with babies around the city since it is fully adapted for people with reduced mobility and for baby carriages, you can skip the stairs to get to the metro and instead catch a glimpse of the streets and neighbourhoods as you go.

The metro network is increasingly accessible to everyone, but if you plan to take the metro, first check the TMB page (Metropolitan Transport of Barcelona) to make sure that the stations you pass through are adapted and have elevators, have accesible links between lines and escalators.

We suggest you use the TMB search engine to get to your destination in the fastest way, or even download the application so you can plan the journeys on the fly.

Tickets can be purchased on the machines of the metro stations or at the TMB points: Universitat (L1, L2), Diagonal (L3, L5) and La Sagrera (L1, L5, L9 Nord, L10). The single ticket costs € 2.10, the locals usually carry the famous T10, a 10-trip multi-personal pass that costs € 10.20 (€ 1.02 per trip), there are different passes that may adjust better to your needs, depending on your time of stay and distances to travel. It is advisable to check the prices of the “Hola” day passes, which have unlimited trips and include round trips to the airport.

Public transport also has:

The Bus Turistic, will take you to the most emblematic places of the city. The tour has an audio guide, access to WIFI and the purchase of the ticket includes discounts at the main tourist attractions in the city.

The funicular (FM line) can be taken at the Paral·lel metro stop (connecting with L2 and L3) and goes up to the Parc de Montjuïc.

The cable car connects the funicular station (Parc de Montjuïc) with the top of the mountain near the Montjuïc Castle. The panoramic of Barcelona from this one is incredible!

The Tramvia Blau connects the Tibidabo Avenue railway station (L7) with the Tibidabo cable car. This historical means of transport dates back to 1901 and takes you to the Tibidabo amusement park, the CosmoCaixa or the Fabra Observatory.
