What to wear in Barcelona in April

What to wear in Barcelona in April?


Temperatures in April can drop in the evening to 5 - 10 degrees Celcius (40 to 50F) and rise to 16-18C (60 to 65F) in the daytime. April is the start of spring in Barcelona. The weather can vary quite a bit. In April it can be cold, windy and rainy - or it can be sunny and hot dry.

In April we recommend you pack some summer gear like shorts and t-shirts and maybe sandals but you should only wear this in the mid-day sun. The mornings and evenings are much cooler and if rainy windy day can be very chilly.

So you must also pack some warm clothes like long trousers/jeans , a sweater, cardigan or light jacket and a cap, scarf and light gloves.

It can be quite a lot cooler at inland or coastal destinations so pack a few warm clothes and good walking shoes if you are going on day tours to Montserrat mountain or other day tours outside Barcelona to Tarragona, Girona, Pyrenees mountains etc.

What to wear for nightlife

Barcelona is generally considered to be a casual wear city so jeans and T-shirts are fine for most occasions.

But for top night clubs and dinner restaurants expect guests to be smart casual.

The top Barcelona night clubs have a very strict dress code, so pack nice shoes, long trousers and a shirt or polo-shirt.  If you need to pick up new clothes in Barcelona then here are the Barcelona shopping malls

Another dress tip for Barcelona. Wear clothes that are not too touristy when sightseeing. Looking too touristy can make you a easy mark for pickpockets in popular tourist areas.

Read our article about avoiding Barcelona pickpockets.

One of the safety tips is wear everyday clothes.

Read our Barcelona weather page for more weather information.

We hope you enjoy your stay in Barcelona in April. :-)
