How to Visit Camp Nou: Barcelona Stadium Visit Info 2024

| 61 comments

Wanna know how to visit Camp Nou? Camp Nou Stadium tours can take this already historic stadium to a new level.

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.

Can You Visit Camp Nou?

ATTENTION (01/29/24): On May 29th 2023 Camp Nou started an aggressive renovation project. During the renovation it won’t be possible to book traditional Camp Nou tours. There is only one, which I’ll get to below.

Yes, you can visit Camp Nou, the iconic home stadium of FC Barcelona.

There are several ways to visit Barcelona football stadium:

  1. Camp Nou Immersive Tour: This is the only way to visit Camp Nou in 2024. It includes access to the museum, an audio guide, some looks into the construction, and the Spotify Camp Nou Live immersive room.
  2. Match Days: Attending a live football match at Camp Nou is an incredible experience, but in 2024 you won’t be able to! They’re currently playing at the Estadi Olímpic Lluís Companys until November 2024.
  3. Guided Tours: Opt for a guided tour if you want a more in-depth and informative visit. These will return in November 2024!
  4. VIP Experience: For a premium visit, consider VIP packages that offer exclusive access, premium seating, and hospitality services.

How to Visit Camp Nou: Visiting Barcelona Football Stadium

Again, from June 7th 2023 the only tickets you can get to visit Camp Nou are for the Immersive Tour.

This includes the museum visit with an 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:

Visit Nou Camp: The 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 visit Barcelona football stadium and take a selfie with the 22 League trophies and 4 Champions League trophies.

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 to visit Nou Camp, 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.

During this visit of Barcelona Football Stadium it’ll 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.

Robokeeper

This is our favorite part of the Camp Nou visit! 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.

Camp Nou Visiting Hours

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

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

Visit Barcelona Football Stadium 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 Match Tickets + Seating Chart

A ton of you have been asking how to buy tickets for FC Barcelona matches and I must say that first of all the city’s season ticket holders have been holding on for generations and especially for bigger matches you may be out of luck.

That said, if you’re going to find any at honest prices they’re going to be through tourist ticket giant Tiqets. You’ll find a list of matches for sale and ticket prices by clicking the button below:

How to Use your Match Tickets

If you’ve bought your Barcelona match tickets using the link above make sure you arrive at Camp Nou about 30-45 minutes in advance – or get there really early for some romantic time between you and the field before crowds arrive.

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!

So, make sure to make your Barcelona football stadium visit in 2024 count 🙂

      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: https://visitenglish.barcelona.ticketbar.eu/en/fc-barcelona/ 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

    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: https://www.fcbarcelona.com/tour/services/get-your-picture-here-fcb-photo-online 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. https://www.barcelonahacks.com/barcelona-city-pass/ OK, any other questions I am here :) Ash
