The largest zip line in Europe will be in Barcelona. This was announced today in a press conference where the bidding for the construction of a zip line that will connect the iconic Tibidabo mountain to the beach was confirmed, a journey that any Barcelona resident who has looked at the city from above has dreamed of doing at some point.

The attraction, whose construction will begin in mid-2024, will start at the Tibidabo amusement park, from where the brave ones who dare can ride a cable that will cover a distance of about 4 kilometers, crossing the entire city and ending at Nova Icària beach.

A zip line to cross the city at 100 km/h In the journey, lasting just a couple of minutes, areas such as Collserola or the Eixample grid will be flown over at speeds that can reach 100 km/h, overcoming the 500-meter drop of Tibidabo, to reach the final point installed on Nova Icària beach.

The ambitious project, aiming to become a new tourist attraction at the highest point in the city, aims to be ready for the summer of 2025 when the cable will allow flying over the sky of Barcelona to its sea.

During the press conference, Andreu Turmell, councilor of the Tibidabo-Collserola district, assured that the attraction will be a success, putting Barcelona on the world map of adventure tourism, as Barcelona’s zip line would take the title of the longest in Europe from the current holder, also located in Spain.

Meanwhile, Fina Canell, director of the Mountain Sports, Hiking, and Adventure Area, recalled that a similar project was successfully installed in the Euromast tower in the city of Rotterdam and that the goal is to follow the example of the Dutch city for this project.

It is often said that Catalonia is the southern Netherlands, so we hope that both there, if they hear the news, and here, the humor of this prank is understood.
