A fast paced weekend of completing challenges and puzzles in teams while exploring the city and finding the secrets of Barcelona.

Barcelona City Challenge

Are you ready to take on the challenge of nagvigating Barcelona and completing puzzles?

From the 3rd to 5th of November 2023 we will meet in Barcelona with teams from different countries to find the next winner in the series of City Challenges. So far there has not been a winning team from FDF, will that change in Catalonia?


During the weekend there will be challenges which will test your teamwork, logic, flexibility, agility and communication skills. Do not fall into the trap of thinking that this competition can be easily won by your vast experience. There are challenges that will defy what you know, and think is possible in Barcelona. One thing you will not need is luck! Nothing is down to luck! Its purely down to your performance, skill navigating the city and cohesion as a team.

No matter the result, you will return to your home with a new adventure to tell everyone of, and you will have experiences and ideas that you can utilize at home. You will meet new people and get friendships crossing cultures and borders.

Each edition of the City Challenge is vasty different from the last, so just because you have been to Berlin or Amsterdam city challenge, it does not mean you know what will happen in Barcelona. We have a new planning team who will learn from the experiences in Berlin and Amsterdam to make this the best city challenge yet!

If you want to take part but do not have a team to go with you, it is now possible to join the register of individuals looking to join a team. You can do so here.
