Between Modernity and Tradition in the Basque Country
Modern buildings, renowned architects, artful hospitality – Bilbao impresses with all its facets. One of the most popular sights in this delightful metropolis is the Guggenheim Museum. It is a place for those who love architecture, while also being a masterpiece in its own right that still characterises the city today. Just a few minutes away by foot is the historic old town. While there, be sure to stop by a Pintxos bar as you stroll along the many alleyways.
The varied natural scenery around Bilbao leaves nothing to be desired: high mountains, dense forests, and a very green coastline. As such, the largest city in the Basque country is not just the perfect starting point for exciting day trips to San Sebastián or to the wine region of La Rioja, but also for a road trip along the winding coastal road. Best of all, these excursions can be combined with an action-packed surfing session on the Costa Vasca.
