Camp Nou Stadium Tour Guide: How to Visit Camp Nou in 2023


Camp Nou Stadium tours are the best way to live Europe’s largest, most historic football stadium.

Home to legendary FC Barcelona, aside from taking the field yourself (you actually can!) the Nou Camp tour is the best way to experience world class football.

In fact, this Barcelona stadium tour is the second biggest tourist attraction in Catalonia behind the epic Sagrada Familia.

Here’s everything you need to know about how to visit Nou Camp in one handy guide.

Camp Nou Tour Tickets: Where to Buy

ATTENTION: from May 29th 2023 Camp Nou will start an aggressive renovation project. During the renovation it won’t be possible to book traditional Camp Nou tours.

From June 7th, the only tickets you can get are for the Immersive Tour, which includes the museum visit with English audio guide + access to the audiovisual space Spotify Camp Nou Live.

You’ll find many online ticket resellers, but we recommend relying on our collaborator Tiqets, which help us to keep this blog (which we’ve dedicated 1000’s of hours to) free 🙂

Here’s a link to book the only current Camp Nou tour left:

Every Camp Nou booking helps us get closer to doing this blog for a living, so thank you 🙏

The Camp Nou Museum

It’s here in this modern and interactive space that you appreciate just how good this club is.

You’ll start off listening to the team anthem with a translation in just about any language needed.

It’s in the museum where you can flip through touch screens with tons of info on the club’s greatest players. You’ll also get a great snapshot into the team’s history watching a video presentation of some of the club’s biggest moments on a massive screen.

⚠️  Warning ⚠️: Barcelona’s top two attractions must now be booked in advance.

You can book fast track tickets to both individually or get them as part of a discount pass:

You will not be able to book these tickets on site – lock in your tickets ASAP or you could miss out.

You can take a selfie with the 22 League trophies and 4 Champions League trophies on display – there’s just a ton of memorabilia and equipment spanning the club’s 100+ years of history.

Top it all off with a visit to the largest official FC Barcelona team shop.

Adding the Camp Nou Museum Audio Guide

The audio guide, available in English, is not included in the standard ticket and must be added during the booking.

It costs €6.00 and I recommend it only to those who are truly interested in curiosities about Barça.

You can request earphones or bring your own headphones.

The duration of the audio guide is about 1 hour and is concentrated in the museum part, so if you are accompanied by someone who has little patience, perhaps it is not for you.

Expect the audio guide to go into deep detail about:

  • Paulino Alcantara’s shoes (the first Messi of 1910)
  • The history of the first FC Barcelona stadium
  • What happened during the Franco dictatorship
  • Anecdotes about the goalscorer Kubala in the 1950s
  • The construction of Camp Nou
  • Tidbits about Johan Cruijff, Maradona, Ronaldinho, and Messi
  • Much more.

This is our favorite part! Here you can try to beat the world’s best keeper – which is actually a robot.

Three shots cost €6.00 and you can pay it straight to the guy at the start of the queue.

There’s really only one way to score here, and that’s burying it Beckham-style into the top corner 😉

In fact, there’s a video online of Messi and Neymar missing – so good luck!

Oscar naturally buried his first shot, then decided to retire.

Final score: Barcelona Hacks 1 – FC Barcelona 0.

Spotify Camp Nou Hours

FC Barça stadium tour opening hours and accessibility vary depending on scheduled matches (more info below).

Once you’ve entered there is no time limit on your stay within the opening hours.

Last entry is 90 minutes before closing time.

Entrances times are staggered every 30 minutes (9:30, 10:00, 10:30 etc.).

The stadium portion of the Camp Nou tour is closed to visitors the day of La Liga matches.

For Champion’s League matches the stadium is closed both the day before and day of the match.

In both cases only the museum and the stadium panorama (until 6 pm) remain open.

How to Get to Camp Nou

You’ll find the stadium in the upscale Les Corts neighbourhood about 5 km from the city centre.

It is strongly recommended to visit Barcelona using the best discount Barcelona transport passes.

The address of Camp Nou is C/Arístides Mallol 12.

🚌 Heading to Camp Nou? Make sure you know how to get around Barcelona on public transport first.

Getting to Camp Nou by Metro

The quickest way to get to Camp Nou is via one of the three Barcelona metro stations: Palau Reial (green line L3), Les Corts (green line L3), or Collblanc (blue line L5, orange line L9S).

If you’ve found a place to stay near La Rambla and the Gothic Quarter your best bet is the green line.

If you’re near Sagrada Familia or in the Eixample neighbourhood consider the blue line.

Each metro station is approximately 8-10 minutes walking from the stadium.

It’ll take about 25-30 minutes door-to-door from anywhere central.

Getting to Camp Nou by Taxi

A standard Barcelona taxi fare from most city centre locations to Camp Nou runs about €10.00 – €14.00.

Since Camp Nou is a bit out of the way this is a great chance to take advantage of my €5.00 discount on Spain’s taxi app program: Free Now (formerly MyTaxi)

For more information see how to sign up with Free Now.

Expect to pay €7.00 or less using this offer – almost as cheap as the metro if you’re travelling in a group!

Getting to Camp Nou by Bus

Camp Nou is also reachable by buses 50, 54, 57, 70, 75, D20, H8, H10 and V3.

It is strongly recommend to consult with your hotel, Airbnb discount homestay, or Barcelona holiday apartment owner before taking a bus as any misadventures finding stops can add a lot of time to the journey.

Getting to Camp Nou by Tram

The tram station for Camp Nou is Trambaix Avinguda de Xile. It is served by the T1, T2, and T3 lines.

The tram service is primarily for outside neighbourhoods like San Joan Despi, San Just Desvern, and Cornella. The Barcelona stops include L’illa (home to a large Barcelona shopping mall) and Plaça de Francesc Macià.

Camp Nou Experience Hacks

  • Get there as early as possible to avoid the crowds (just after lunch is the busiest).
  • Leave 90-180 minutes for the tour depending on your football love.
  • If you want to tour Nou Camp don’t wear green if you want a picture with the pitch!
  • Bring comfortable shoes (not flip flops or heels) cuz you’ll be walking a lot.
  • If there’s a chance of rain dress accordingly (the stadium has no roof!).
  • Get the audio guide for the full experience.
  • The massive club shop has everything but watch the prices.
  • Don’t eat there – go to the best restaurants near Camp Nou.
  • If you have restricted luggage for the flight there’s an FCB shop at Duty Free.

Camp Nou Stadium Tour History

By the late 1940’s rising football power FC Barcelona had outgrown the Camp de Les Corts and needed a new stadium to house all the new fans generated by star striker Ladislao Kubala.

Cue the aptly named Camp Nou (‘New Camp’).

The city broke ground on this UEFA five star stadium on March 28th, 1954.

When the last brick was laid Camp Nou had a capacity of 99,354. The ground was set for some of the greatest teams in football history to frustrate opponents – like hated rivals Real Madrid.

Long before any tours of Camp Nou the stadium hosted the Olympics, World Cup (with 120,000 spectators including added standing tickets), the Champions League Final, and even the Pope.

A €600 million Camp Nou renovation project is currently underway – but the games go on!

Can I get to Camp Nou directly from the airport?

Yes, simply take the L9 metro (orange line) to Collblanc stadium from either terminal.

Can I bring my camera to Camp Nou?

The only prohibition expressed by the stadium is that no professional cameras are allowed. This would mean massive telephoto lenses that could obstruct the view of other spectators.

A friend brought his SLR camera with a 200 mm lens and encountered no problem, though bigger than this you may want to urge caution.

Where is Camp Nou in Barcelona?

Camp Nou is found at C. d’Arístides Maillol, 12 in the Les Corts district of southwest Barcelona.

Is Camp Nou pitch bigger?

The pitch at Camp Nou complies with FIFA regulations and clocks in at 105 m x 68 m: the same as Premier League clubs like Arsenal and Manchester United.

It is relatively small compared to Spain’s biggest pitch in Elche which measures 108 m x 70m.

Where to sit at Camp Nou?

Football fanatics should look to sit in the Gol Nord Zone because it’s the closest area to the pitch where you won’t spend a ton of money.

It’s also home to some of the most enthusiastic, flag-waving supporters which create an authentic, exciting atmosphere.

How are Camp Nou seats numbered?

The are four main sections of the stadium: Tribuna, Lateral, Gol Nord, and Gol Sud.

Each section is served by multiple ‘ACCES’ areas from the street (numbered 1-22 on your ticket). From these areas you’ll scan your tickets at a designated ‘PUERTA’ (entrance).

Once inside you’ll access your seats going to the correct ‘BOCA’ (pitch entrance) and finding your FILA (row) and SEIENT (seat).

Camp Nou or Nou Camp?

Locals call it Camp Nou. The name Nou Camp is an anglofonized version so if you want to say it correctly then go with the Catalan version.

Why the name Camp Nou?

Though the original name of Barcelona FC’s second stadium was the Estadi del FC Barcelona, it was more commonly referred to as Camp Nou (New Stadium) for obvious reasons – the name stuck.

It was only officially renamed Camp Nou for the 2000/2001 season, after 68% of the club members voted in favour of the change.

      Hi Bek's I would check back on the official website every day leading up to the match to see if any come available... in addition I promote a ticket broker which may put some on sale as well as reasonable prices: You can check back here every now and then as well. Other than this it's looking like you'll have to go to some of the more expensive resellers like Stubhub or Viagogo. They are both reliable but definitely out to make money on you! All tickets can be shown via mobile. Ash

    Great advice!! Thanks. I am planning to take Camp Nou tour on either April 20 and April 21, 2019 and need some guidance. Both show up as match days when I try to book a tour, but I don't see any matches in FC Barcelona calendar on April 20. Do you think we could still do the stadium tour (unaltered) if I book am AM tour for Saturday April 20?

      Hi VS, Which site were you looking at exactly? With the links I've provided below it is showing availability on April 20th for both the general tour and the stadium tour plus. Perhaps there was a momentary glitch in the system? If there is no match that day I don't see why it would be unavailable. Ash
      • February 15, 2019 at 7:39 am
        Thanks. I was looking on the FC Barcelona official site and it still shows April 20 as Match Day. Hence I was not sure. Earlier, I missed this note, in the above link: The coming dates the Camp Nou Experience is closed: 20th of January 2nd and 17th of February 10th, 13th and 31st of March 7th, 21st and 28th of April 12th of May

          Hi VS, This is strange and perhaps it's an error on their part? I again don't see any matches on the 20th of April. What you can do is call their call centre for the official word? +34 902 189 900. Please let me know how you get on :) Ash
          • March 28, 2019 at 12:43 am
            Match switched from 21st to 20th April just this week. Thankfully we are arriving a day early so can still attend match! Thanks for your great website!

    Hi Ash, I wanted to know what is the difference between the tickets sold at ticketbar and those on the official site of fcb? I think a lot more is included in the ticketbar's tickets than that of the official site for the same price (25 euros)? Thanks!

      Hi Darshita, Ticketbar is simply an independent broker which usually organizes better deals, addons, packages etc... which tickets exactly were you comparing? The guided tour or the general entrance? Ash
      • August 14, 2018 at 5:41 pm
        Darshita Ojha
        The general entrance tickets. So would you recommend using ticketbar's tour? It is reliable right? Thanks!

      Hi Kay Thank you for the comments on my blog, it is greatly appreciated :) To my knowledge only Camp Nou offers a photo service and I've heard it's really not worth the money at the end of the day. Here we're talking about group photos with a green screen behind where they put you into the team etc. Here's an example: As far as professional photos go you may want to get in touch with some independently on Instagram. There are a ton of great local ones like zuckerandspice who may negotiate for a price, but again I wouldn't have any idea unfortunately :( Please let me know how you get on, and I hope you have any amazing holiday! :) Ash

      Hi Maria, Thanks so much for writing. Camp Nou tour tickets with Ticketbar are only sold up to 3 months in advance. If you're going in February I would check back in November to book your tour. You can of course just book the much more flexible open ticket at any point, even now. That way you won't have to worry about any last minute changes affecting the tour. That said, good job on planning all this so much in advance! It's not my style and I am certainly jealous of your enthusiasm and work ethic ;) Any more questions I am here! Ash

    hi, I love your site. Its so helpful and fun to navigate through. I have a question... for all the main attractions (camp nou, sagrada, case batllo), you say get tickets online at ticket bar and then skip the line... I was just wondering is that any different from buying the tickets from each of those three places online at each one's official site? Does ticket bar have a better rate and is there skip a line with them that is not available from the official site tickets? thank you so much Stacy

      Hi Stacy, Thanks for writing. Ticketbar prices for Casa Batllo and the Camp Nou Experience are identical as are the line skipping capabilities. With Sagrada Familia it is cheaper going through the official site - I only suggest Ticketbar for people looking to book in their own language (if it isn't Spanish or English) and because the customer service in my opinion is better. For a real discount opportunity with these I suggest taking a look at the Barcelona City Pass - you'll get Sagrada Familia + Park Guell and can get 20% discounts on Casa Batllo, Camp Nou etc. OK, any other questions I am here :) Ash
