About Us

Our story

Michael and Christian are the founders of The Barcelona Feeling: “We left Germany 23 years ago and have been living in Barcelona for more than 12 years. We are experienced world travellers having visited more than 40 countries on all continents.

When coming to Barcelona we developed a passion for its architecture, the rich history and the many legends that can be found all over the city. Turning passion into a profession we became tour guides and founded The Barcelona Feeling, specialising in small private groups, off the beaten path tours and historic walking routes.

So join us and discover your own Barcelona Feeling!”

OUR MISSION: Building memories

The experience my wife and I had on our tour with Christian is one that we continued to talk about for days. What I expected to be just another tour turned out to be an experience that made us understand what made Barcelona such an extraordinary city”, Michael/New York (January 2020)

Christian and Michael are both from Dortmund, Germany. Both are passionate world travellers having visited 40 countries on all continents. In 2010 they did an all-around-the-world trip in six months. Having left Germany in 2000 they spent many years in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, before settling in Barcelona.

Michael graduated from the University of Dortmund with a degree in social sciences. His hobby is photography. Many of his photos are displayed on this website.

Christian holds a dual degree in International Business and Management and has worked for many years in international companies: “In 2017 the idea developed that we would like to share our fascination about Barcelona with other travellers from all over the world. It was the moment when The Barcelona Feeling was born.”

Christian´s passion is history and during his walking tours you will be able to listen to his fascinating story telling. “We focus ourselves on small, personal groups or private tours in Barcelona and surrounding areas in order to provide the best experience to our guests.”
