Camp Nou: Tickets and Tours
Camp Nou is the biggest soccer stadium in Europe and has been home to FC Barcelona since the stadium’s completion in 1957. The massive stadium has a seating capacity of just under 100,000 people and is by far one of Barcelona’s most visited attractions.
You don’t need to watch a soccer game in order to see the stadium for yourself. There are Camp Nou tickets and tours on offer that allow you to explore this historical landmark on your own terms.
Look forward to running through the players’ tunnel, taking photos on the pitch and visiting the Camp Nou Museum. Just remember to bring a little extra spending money for souvenirs.
When visiting Camp Nou, you’ll have to purchase general admission tickets to gain access to the stadium and the museum. General admission ticket prices are as follows:
Children under 4: Free
Buying tickets online ahead of time is actually significantly cheaper than purchasing tickets at the onsite ticket office. This is because of the €3.50 per ticket handling fee that is charged for offline tickets.
When you purchase tickets online, your tickets will be emailed to you and you can either print them or simply show them on your phone when you enter through Gate 9.
Online tickets have the additional advantage of allowing you to skip the queue, which can be very long.
Who is eligible for discounts?
Local students, who hold a valid student ID, only need to pay €20.00 per ticket as opposed to the standard €28.00 for adults. Pensioners over 70 also receive a discount, and they pay €21.00 per person for general admission.
Should you book in advance?
It makes sense to book your Camp Nou tickets online ahead of time as you’ll receive a discount and be able to skip the queue.
If you are not entirely sure when you’d like to visit the stadium, you can always pay slightly more for an open ticket, which provides you with more flexibility.
If you want to book a Camp Nou tour, with a professional tour guide, it is best to book in advance so that you can secure your spot on your preferred excursion.
