Bilbao may often find itself in the shadows of Barcelona and Madrid, but this Spanish city in the North has so much to offer. Known for its culture, world-renowned restaurants, and historical architecture, you really can’t go wrong in Bilbao.
As a cultural hub, the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao has helped curate a strong interest in art and history. The museum has hosted over 20 million guests since it opened in 1997. Not bad for a small Spanish town.
Another huge part of the Bilbaoan culture is the incredible food tradition that has sprung up in the area. If you’re a serious foodie, you can find it all in Bilbao. With over 40 Michelin-starred restaurants (more than anywhere else in Europe) and iconic Basque-style tapas, called pintxos, found on every street corner, your tastebuds will be in heaven. Splurge on fine dining at Azurmendi, Mina Restaurante, or go a bit further out into Basque country where you’ll find many more highly rated restaurants in San Sebastian. For a more casual pintxos experience, stop into any local cafe. Cafe Iruna, Bar Bacaicoa, and Guretoki are a few favorites.
Architecture is another massive aspect of Bilbao culture. From interesting bridges to modern city buildings, there are some incredible projects to see in the area. Zubizuri (or “white bridge”) is the perfect selfie companion and the Calatrava Bridge is a footbridge that’s just begging to be crossed. You’ll also see La Salve, the “red bridge” when you visit the Guggenheim as it’s right in front of the museum.
Fun Fact: Bilbao was named Best European City at the 2018 Urbanism Awards.
Bilbao is filled with deep cultural values in art, food, architecture, and more. Even if you’ve never considered visiting this northern Spanish city, you’ll be pleasantly surprised by its vibrancy.
If you need a few pointers, here are the top spots to check out in Bilbao:
Start your day in Plaza Nueva admiring the stunning architecture of this public square. On Sundays, it’s the site of a bustling market or if you need to send a quick email, there’s free wifi throughout.
Take a long stroll through Casca Viejo, the historical district of Bilbao, or take a break to feed the ducks in Dona Casilda Park.
Be sure to scope out the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao, a huge part of the cultural scene in the area, or the Museo de Bellas Artes which has a lot to offer as well.
Go shopping in El Ensanche complete with boutique shops and well-known brand name stores.
Check out Vizcaya Bridge, the world’s first transporter bridge built way back in 1893 nearby and other iconic bridges including Zubizuri, Calatrava Bridge, and La Salve.
Take in the mountaintop views via the Artxanda Funicular.
Experience Basque dining culture at Mercado de la Ribera (River Market) for local street food or book a table at Restaurante Mandoya. For an extra special occasion, spend the evening at one of the countless Michelin-starred restaurants in Bilbao like Azurmendi or Mina Restaurante.
Enjoy a boat ride with incredible views along the Nervion River.
Sip on a cocktail at one of the local bars in El Ensanche such as La Casa del Bandito or Abadia del Gin&Tonic.

You might be simply stopping through Bilbao on your way to Madrid. Or, your train doesn’t leave for another few hours and you want to explore while you can. Either way, you won’t want to carry all your luggage around with you.
Bounce partners with local businesses to provide affordable, convenient, secure luggage storage in Bilbao. Just download the app, search your location, and drop off your things with one of our vetted partners. It’s super easy and you’ll be ready to see the city, hands-free!
Once your luggage is safely stored and you’re no longer tied down to your stuff, you’ll be ready to experience Bilbao in all its glory. We suggest starting with the food.
Dining: Many people travel to Bilbao to experience its world-class fine dining and while in the city, it’s certainly recommended if you’re ready to splurge on a fancy dinner. Bilbao has the most Michelin-star rated restaurants in all of Europe, boasting 40 in all.
Most of these restaurants are outside the city in the heart of Basque country in San Sabastian. However, if you want to stay in Bilbao itself, go to Michelin-starred Azurmendi or Mina Restaurante for some of the best dining in the world.
Pintxos are traditional Bilbao tapas that are also worth a taste on your visit. They can be found in nearly every cafe in town. We recommend Cafe Iruna, Bar Bacaicoa, or Guretoki.
Architecture: Architecture is another huge part of the Bilbao experience and crossing a few of the iconic bridges like Zubizuri, Calatrava Bridge, and La Salve will be worth it.
However, one of the best ways to experience the architecture and landscape of Bilbao is by taking the Artxanda Funicular to the top of Artxanda mountain. Not only will you bask in the amazing views from the top but the ride itself is just as enjoyable. It’s a must-do.
Museums: Museum-lovers can check out the Guggenheim Museum Bilboa or the Museo de Bellas Artes, and the streets of Casca Viejo are sure to transport you back in time.

This was my first time using this service and it worked seamlessly. I had no problems at all dropping my bag off at NYC Racquet Sports and it was just as easy picking it up. This location is a couple blocks from Penn Station, so it was perfect for exploring Manhattan for several hours before catching the train to Newark Airport for a late night flight. Will definitely use this service on future trips!
Really excellent service, right around the corner from A/C/E trains at Penn Station in New York. Popular and busy restaurant, too — but no one kept me waiting to drop off or pick up a bag.
This place is awesome, it’s near Macy’s and other souvenir shops, nearby food outlets too and near the Penn station in New York. This is the best place to leave your luggage for last minute shopping before you head to the airport via Penn station. Plus the Employees are very courteous and kind
