Things to do

From historical sites to natural wonders, your family will never run out of exciting things to see and do in Bilbao and the Basque Country. Discover a world of adventure and create precious memories together with these handpicked attractions and activities.

No visit to Bilbao is complete without exploring the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao, a magnificent building housing modern and contemporary art that will fascinate both adults and children. Stroll along the Bilbao Estuary for refreshing views and an opportunity to engage in various water-based activities suitable for all ages. Bilbao's Old Town, Casco Viejo, offers a unique insight into the city's rich history and charm. Wander the narrow streets and squares where you'll find shops, restaurants, and cafes that cater to families. Additionally, UNESCO has recognised this area for its cultural significance, ensuring a rewarding and educational experience for everyone. For nature-loving families, visit the lush Artxanda Park, an ideal spot for picnics, outdoor games, and stunning panoramic views over the city. Here, you can catch the Artxanda Funicular, a thrilling ride for kids and adults alike. Lastly, venture beyond the city to discover the striking Gaztelugatxe island and its iconic stone bridge. Surrounded by emerald waters and dramatic cliffs, this gem in the Basque Country is perfect for an unforgettable family adventure, including a captivating hike to the historic hermitage.

When to visit

For families looking to enjoy Bilbao's pleasant weather and outdoor activities, the best time to visit is between mid-April and mid-October, when it's the driest. June and September are particularly appealing as they offer lower prices and fewer crowds compared to the summer months. If cultural immersion and local events top your list, spring is a fantastic time to experience numerous parades and religious celebrations. Though winter months tend to be milder and rainier, they're still a possible option for those who prefer cooler temperatures and indoor attractions. Remember to plan your holiday around school breaks to ensure a delightful family experience without disrupting term-time schedules.
