Our “Botxo”, or BILBAO as we call it, has something special that makes us recall the numerous plans and enjoyable moments with friends (your cronies, your “cuadrilla”) with Bilbao as the hub.
In BILBAO you can choose where to go, among an amazing Cultural agenda, a top ten of musical events, BBK LIVE, BIME, numerous concerts in BEC (Bilbao Exhibition Center) and in private halls, 2018 MTV Awards ceremony. In addition, there are sports events for all tastes: we hosted the world Basketball championship and now in 2018 we have hosted the RUGBY WORLD CUP, RED BULL Cliff Diving, races and marathons, (even at night-time, long live running).You will also get to know Basque Sport: we play Basque “pelota” (hand- and wicker-basket versions) in the “frontones” (courts), we lift rocks, we cut tree-trunks and we sail the waves in “traineras”. There is just one thing missing: that you decide what, where and who with. You will have endless opportunities to enjoy yourself to the point of exhaustion.
Ohhhh and don’t forget: a football team to cheer and support: our ATHLETIC DE BILBAO (don’t you know the red and white stripped T-shirts?) and the basketball team BILBAO BASKET (the colour is black). Just wait and see how you’ll get hooked and will cheer for our teams to win their place on the world map. Here in BILBAO is where we experience everything with intensity and passion. So, don’t hesitate, we’re waiting for you!
Bilbao Tourism and Bilbao International
Bilbao Tourism entices you to places so you get to know our city and surroundings better (Game of Thrones filming locations, Surf). And in Bilbao International you will discover activities that promote our image in the world map: BBK LIVE, MTV Awards, Rugby World Cup and World Chess Championship, etc.
Bilbao – mindful of its cultural leisure activities for university students
For only €5 a year? Amazing, right? In December 2017 an agreement was signed so that university students using their friendship card can get into exhibitions in the Guggenheim Museum, special price to sessions with DJ's, as well as discounts in the Fine Arts Museum, Arriaga Theatre and Bilbao Symphonic Orchestra (BOS in Spanish/Basque).
