Those who only connect the legendary Guggenheim Museum with Bilbao, will be very surprised by the visit. The city is one of the most innovative and colorful in Spain. Due to its location in northern Spain and its changing history, the metropolis has a very individual identity. It is the most important industrial and port city in the Basque country and has a population of almost 900,000.
Boom through infrastructure
In the 1990s, the city seemed to face a slow downturn due to the high unemployment, the population figures declined steadily. But by some spectacular investments in the infrastructure, the decline could be halted and turned back. The boom known as the "Bilbao effect" was supported, among other things, by the construction of the Guggenheim Museum, according to the plans of US star architect Frank O. Gehry. Even more decisive for the positive development was the construction of the 28-kilometer-long metroline. This made it possible to integrate the districts of the river Nevión, which had previously been disjointed. The stations were designed almost entirely by Sir Norman Foster and provide the best proof for the importance of design and architecture in regards to the identity of a city.
A lively atmosphere
Bilbao has more to offer than some of the best-known examples of avant-garde architecture of the 20th century. The many parks and green areas and the promenade along the water contribute significantly to the lively atmosphere of the city. And finally, it is the warm, open and helpful inhabitants who can make any city to a dream location.
World famous gastronomy
The Basque cuisine is world-famous and the bar is particularly high in Bilbao due to the innovative young star chefs - relying on creations from fish and seafood. Apart from fishing, cattle farming and vegetable farming are the agricultural activities in the Basque Country. In Bilbao you can dine from traditional to fancy. For many gourmets, this alone is a reason to visit Bilbao.
