Everything about visiting the Tibidabo mountain in Barcelona. Transport to the top of the mountain, the amusement park, and other activities on this mountain with beautiful views.
Tibidabo mountain & Amusement Park
At 512 metres, Tibidabo is the highest hill in the Serra de Collserola mountain chain. The hill is located on the outskirts of Barcelona and is very popular because of the unique views of the city and the green surroundings, making it perfect for sports and recreation. The hill itself is visible from practically anywhere in Barcelona. Atop the mountain there is a large theme park, the amusement park "Parque de Atracciones del Tibidabo", and a number of buildings, including the church 'Iglesia del Sagrat Cor'. This church has been compared to the Sacré-Coeur of Paris, not just because of the similarities in decoration, but also because both churches have been built at high altitudes and have the same name.
Transport to the top of the mountain
If you want to get to the top of the mountain, you can do so by public transport in three ways.
- Your first option is to take the Tramvia Blau followed by the Funicular. The journey with the Funicular is definitely the most fun. Read the details of the trip below.
- Bus turistico T2A from Plaça Catalunya (bus stop on the corner of Pl. Catalunya and Rbla. Catalunya, for the Caja Madrid bank). The buses run from 10:15 AM on days when the amusement park is open. One way: € 2,95
- Tibidabo-Vall d'Hebron Parking + Shuttle Bus (T2B). From 11:00 AM to 30 minutes before closing time on days when the amusement park is open. You can reach the car park by metro (L3 or L5, Vall de Hebron). The shuttle bus is free when you show your wrist band to the driver. You can get one at the ticket office in the car park. This service is only available for theme park visitors. If you only come to the Tibidabo to enjoy the view, this is not an option for you.
The Tramvia Blau is the most beautiful way to get to the foot of the mountain. The Tramvia Blau takes you up 93 metres over a distance of 1,276 metres, between Avinguda Tibidabo (metro station) and the start of the cable-car system, the funicular.
