We left Germany 18 years ago and have been living in Barcelona for more than 8 years. We are experienced world traveller having visited 40 countries on all continents.

When coming to Barcelona we developed a passion for its architecture, the rich history and the many legends that can be found all over the city. Turning our passion into a profession we became tour guides and founded The Barcelona Feeling, specialising in small/private groups, off the beaten path tours and historic walking routes. So join us and discover your own Barcelona Feeling!

Description

What is Modernism? Why did it develop? Why does the roof of Casa Batlló look a dragon´s back? Christian will answer these questions during the walk along the famous Gaudí houses and the old town. Discover more buildings from that era in the medieval quarter of Born. Get to know Barcelona’s history and legends while strolling through its labyrinth of little streets.

The walk will lead us to Angelika´s workshop where you will learn the technique named “Trencadís”. As you will have discovered during the walk, this technique - using materials such as shards of glass, ceramics or mirrors - can be found on Gaudí´s work. After a short introduction she will show you the basics, handling of tools and how to create your first trencadís masterpiece such as a photo frame, a coaster or a heart. Angelika was rewarded in 2016 by the Catalan President with a master craftsman certificate for her skills and being an ambassador of cultural traditions.

This experience will leave you with an unforgettable memory and a unique reminder of your trip to Barcelona. Feel like Gaudí during this walk & workshop.

A nice souvenir to bring home
for Christian and Michael’s tour (Feel like Gaudí: Tour & Mosaic Workshop)
Christian gave us what felt like a comprehensive tour of Gaudi works and the history around the architecture in the city, which the adults in our group appreciated the most. He also had insightful perspectives on the Catalonian, Spanish and European cultures which were interesting to talk about. On the workshop part of the tour Angelika was very nice and all of us really liked creating simple mosaics. It was also nice to have something hand-made to bring home.

Highly recommend this experience!
for Christian and Michael’s tour (Feel like Gaudí: Tour & Mosaic Workshop)
What a wonderful afternoon! Our family (teens and their parents) so enjoyed our private tour of Barcelona with Christian! He is incredibly knowledgeable about Gaudí and “modernism” architecture. We traipsed around the city, stopping to look at fabulous architecture and hearing great stories along the way. Christian is a wonderful guide, had lots to share and made the two hours fly by. After our leisurely, two hour promenade, Christian handed us off to Angelika and we made lovely mosaics in her studio in an hour! We had our own private space, were offered to either make a magnet or decorate the top of a small box. We all chose the magnets and had such fun creating a pattern out of glass or ceramic tiles, a la Gaudí! We left on time with our beautiful work of art. We would all HIGHLY RECOMMEND this wonderful and unique experience! Thank you for such a fun filled and enjoyable afternoon!

Amazing workshop
for Christian and Michael’s tour (Feel like Gaudí: Tour & Mosaic Workshop)
We are a family of 4 (10 and 14 yr olds) who wanted a unique experience in Barcelona, so booked the Gaudí Tour & Mosaic Workshop and it was AMAZING! Christian started us off with a walking tour of some of Gaudí's (Casa Mila, Casa Batllo) and works by other architects of his time. He gave us a great overview of Gaudí--answering every one of our questions--and made the walking tour interesting to all 4 of us (not an easy feat, as it was booked on our second day there and we were jetlagged). Then he dropped us off at Angelika's studio where we could have stayed for hours working on our mosaics. All four of us were TOTALLY engaged in our projects. The best thing about this tour is you go home with both more knowledge of the city and one of its most famous architects and an amazing souvenir that you've made yourself. We LOVED this experience and would highly recommend it to everyone who wants something really special from Barcelona. Thanks so much, Christian and Angelika. You made our stay extra special!
