    You don't necessarily need to get a ticket to the main area. The surrounding park is very nice as well and if you climb to the small hill you get an impressive view of Barcelona.

    My preference is to enter at the top of the park then walk down rather than the other way around. Less crowded entrance and a nice way to see some of the park outside the monumental zone.

    incredible view on the city. try to walk a little bit "off the track". definitely visit the 3 crosses stone hill (see photo) for an amazing panorama and a cocktail - you'll find the cocktail guy ;-)

    Beautiful place to spend a morning or afternoon. Loads to see and plenty of areas to explore. Gaudi's house is pretty interesting. Try and get tickets for the monumental area in advance!

    A reduced parcel of the park concentrate the iconic modernist buildings (8€) and the surrounding area is free access. The experience could be better adding live music of projected videos.

    Buy tickets online ahead of time for monumental zone!! While the surrounding free gardens were nice, I certainly didn't want to make the long trek from the metro back up the hill to get there later.

    Fantastic architecture and stunning views. We queued up and quickly realised we'd be there ages so used our mobile to order the ticket online instead so definitely book your tickets in.advance.

    Beautiful park with a great view of Barcelona and the sea. The entrance for the park is free, but the memorial needs tickets so buy them in advance because they sell out.

    A must-see! Trek to the very top for some of the best panoramic views of the city. Take note of graffiti art on rooftops & building walls when looking out from viewpoints!

    Buy tickets (7€) online before visiting bc they accept limited number of visitors in the monumental zone. The park zone is free but all photos you see in the web are taken inside the monumental zone.

    The park contains amazing stone structures and multi-colored tiled mosaics. Check out the terraced area at top of park to get a wonderful view of the park and the city of Barcelona. Entrance is free.

    This is one of my favorite places in the world. I loved it and be sure to take a snack if you want to stay for a while. Be ready to walk! Love the architecture and the locals explain so much!

    The pay to play monument area is great, but the viaducts are equally charming and futuristic. You can probably skip waiting in lines for the Casa de Guarda, unless you are a Gaudi die hard

    It's a beautiful city park; but so overcrowded. Make sure you book the ticket online in advance. Visit Park Güell early in the morning or late in the afternoon. Not a stroller friendly park.

    Either get your ticket early or be prepared to wait a few hours from the time you buy it to the time you're allowed in. It's definitely worth the wait and the free areas are pretty cool too

    It's been announced that from October 2013, tourists will have to pay between €5 and €10 to enter Park Güell. A small price to pay, though, for such a beautiful park.

    It's only a couple of more euro for a guided tour which is totally worth it. Roam around the free bits and make sure you make it all the way to the top for great views of Barcelona.

    8 EUR per person nowadays. If you enjoy a good walk, you can enter the park from the North (for free), and come down to the front to get the wonderful view of Barcelona. Leave through a side exit.

    Amazing, buy tickets from internet and use escalators. Very interesting park with beatifull statues, nice view of Barcelona. Walk top of the hill with the cross too. Gauidi is suprising geneous man.

    Just beautiful. Love gaudi. Take bus to parc guell so you don't have long uphill climb from subway station. But tickets for monument section early. Try to go around sunset.

    In 1899, Gaudí build an extravagant residential area in the countryside of Barcelona. Some years later, Barcelona City Council bought it and opened it as a municipal garden, the Park Güell. Read more

    Very very hot place and beautiful, great view to Barcelona. Take some food, or if you get hungry outside the park there is a sandwiches shop, delicious but a little bit expensive. Enjoy the musicians

    Nice place with the very Gaudí style. I recommend to book online one day before to get in the monulental part of the park. If not, no problem, the public part is also really worth it... 😀

    Amazing park! Gaudí's playful architecture blends perfectly with nature. The monumental zone is a must, requires a ticket, the rest of the park is free. Also the neighbourhood around is interesting.

    A beautiful atmosphere. it is really hard to complete it at once.bring some food and drink with you and have some breath under a tree...otherwise you can be a visitor in the hospital next to the park.

    A must see when you visit Barcelona. If you don't want to spend any money, you can go round the park which also has a nice view.

    Go to the top of the park for the best view of Barcelona. The park is magical with Gaudi's creations. The paths and trails are long, so wear comfortable shoes. Wheelchair accessible.

    Sit back on the bench surrounding the main square. The design with lumbar support is amazing! Find out about the water filtration and other "green" things Gaudi did, too! Way ahead of his time!

    The house where Gaudi lived is free to visit on Sundays (until 6 pm). Go in the afternoon to also watch a scenic sunset from here and enjoy the glinting masterpieces in the garden.

    Don't miss rest of the park while being fascinated by the Gaudi's works. Climb to the top so you may see a local musician playing by him/herself.

    Buy tickets online and skip the line. Or do wait in the line and spend some time in the free area of the park while waiting for accessing the monumental zone. Online tickets are € 1 cheaper.

    Beautiful views of Barcelona. Didn't get to see the monuments coz the guided tour timings were too far. Hate that we came all the way & didn't get to see the most important attraction.

    Beautiful park - but very crowded already in April - you have to walk around and up to get the best views of Barcelona and amazing photo-spots. When going down take the left walkway!

    Great view of Barcelona! Easiest way (less walking) to get there is to take the 24 bus from Plaça Catalunya. Drops you off outside the entrance, then a nice 10 minute walk to Gaudí's work.

    Must see! Make sure to come right at 9am so you can avoid the huge tour buses unloading waves of people. Also, if possible buy tickets before hand.

    Amazingly beautiful park and view. Incredible design by Antoni Gaudi. A must see. Pack a picnic of wine and snacks and enjoy your afternoon.

    Once you've entered the paid-for part of the park you're free to stay as long as you want, even past the official closing time. Nonetheless, be aware that the gates might be closed before you leave!

    this place is awesome and I'm strongly recommend to visit it, you will see a unique architectural engineering from inside & outside, it's worth buying a ticket to have a tour in this fabulous park.

    Best thing in Barcelona. Go in the middle of the afternoon and watch the sunset from the top of the park. Best view of the city.

    No trip to Barcelona is complete without seeing the innovative works of the architect Antoni Gaudi. Evidence of his work is spread throughout the city, none more than at the Parc Guell. Read more

    Crowds start arriving at 9:30-10:00 in September. Book ahead for the 9:00 AM slot at the latest, it's worth getting up early to beat the crowds and have nice photos :)

    Beautiful park! Beware though, the ticketed monumental area can get really crowded! I'd expect an early morning visit to be best in order to avoid taking photos of people rather than Gaudi's art...

    It's a very beautiful place but everyone want to sell you things you don't need and the salamander statue isn't free anymore (you should "climb" the mountain to have a 360º view of Barcelona)

    The public part is a great walk. Private paid part is a bit overpriced but bring your walking shoes and really go through the paths. About 1-2 hours. Lots of great pooches!

    Something like out of fairy tales. Buy tickets earlier online. Bring comfy shoes, Check out the free areas. Lots of climbing, majestic views.

    Open air museum...beautiful gaudi`s art and views in a sunny day. Free entrance, no audioguides, better read a bit before going. Small cheap museum where Gaudi used to lived, furniture art, beautiful!

    Visit in the morning (it opens around 8am normally) to escape the crowds. You'll easily be able to take photos of the lizard and the view from the peak with the crosses if you do!

    Very far from the center of Barcelona and you will have a serious walk toward the hill. I wasnt fascinated by it, I thought it was better and more beautiful. If you have an extra time you can visit it
