10 original and fun ideas to propose in Barcelona

Surprise at Parc Güell!

The Parc Güell, a masterpiece by the brilliant Antoni Gaudí, is a place full of color and magic. How about organizing a treasure hunt where your partner finds clues until reaching the grand finale: an engagement ring waiting for them in one of the park’s most iconic spots? Make sure there’s someone hidden to capture that special moment in a photograph!

Reach for the stars at the Observatori Fabra

If your partner loves astronomy, you can surprise them with a visit to the Observatori Fabra. Reserve a romantic dinner under the stars at their famous restaurant, and at the perfect moment, have a telescope appear to observe an especially bright star. When your partner approaches to take a look, tell them that star bears their name and that you want to spend the rest of your life with them.

Float away at Port Vell

Rent a small boat and sail through Port Vell while enjoying the sunset and the city views. When least expected, bring out the ring and pop the big question. If you’re worried about the ring falling into the water, don’t fret, you can always tie it with a string to the bottle of champagne you brought along to celebrate!

You can also organize a romantic dinner on a sailboat, where under the candlelight and the starry night sky, you can get down on one knee and ask for your partner’s hand.

Live music at the Palau de la Música Catalana!

If your partner is a music lover, organize a concert night at the majestic Palau de la Música Catalana. Coordinate in advance with the musicians and staff to have them perform “your” song at a specific moment during the event. When it starts playing, bring out the ring and propose to the rhythm of the music.

Bird’s-eye view at the Montjuïc Cable Car

Surprise your partner with a ride on the Montjuïc Cable Car. Once you’re up in the air, enjoying the spectacular views of the city, take the opportunity to bring out the ring and ask if they want to spend the rest of

their life with you. A moment you’ll never forget!

A flashmob on Las Ramblas, Sagrada Familia, or a central location

If you enjoy grabbing attention and want an original and fun proposal, organize a flashmob on Las Ramblas, Sagrada Familia, or a central location in Barcelona. Gather a group of friends, family, or even professional dancers, and surprise your partner with a choreography to the rhythm of your favorite song. At the end, get down on one knee and pop the question.

Love at the Font Màgica de Montjuïc

Plan a visit to the Font Màgica de Montjuïc, a mesmerizing light and water show. With the help of the staff, synchronize the appearance of the engagement ring with the climax of the show. When the lights, water, and music reach their peak, get down on one knee and make the proposal. It will be magical!

Find the key to the heart at the Laberint d’Horta

The Parc del Laberint d’Horta is a place full of charm and mystery. Design a game where your partner must find a series of hidden objects within the labyrinth. The final object will be a key that opens a box hidden in the center of the maze. There, you’ll find the engagement ring together and you can make the proposal in the midst of that dreamlike setting.

High up on the Sagrada Família

Book a guided tour of the famous Sagrada Família and plan to climb one of its towers to enjoy panoramic views of Barcelona. At the top, with the city at your feet, seize the moment to bring out the ring and propose. A heavenly experience!

A romantic picnic at Parc de la Ciutadella

Organize a picnic at Parc de la Ciutadella, but add a special touch. Ask a friend to dress up as a mime and appear at the location at the right moment. The mime should hand a box to your partner, and upon opening it, they will discover the engagement ring. At that moment, get down on one knee and ask the million-dollar question.
