With so many people flocking to explore the intriguing beauty of Park Güell, the on-site ticket counters are almost always found at the end of a long queue. You can skip these long lines by spending almost the same amount on your tickets by booking them in advance. Another way of escaping the wait is to go for one of the guided tours.
You can choose the day of your visit and the time slot of your preference and book a ticket to Park Güell even three months before your trip. The online ticket will be sent to your e-mail which you can display before entering the estate. Remember that you will still have to go through the security check before stepping into the park.
A guided tour of the park is the best way to explore this fantastic Catalan landmark. An expert guide will take you around and show you all the major highlights of the park. Booking a guided tour also gives you priority access to the park, allowing you to skip the ticket line and head straight inside with your guide.
Park Guell opens at 8:00 AM everyday and this is when the crowd is at its least. It's not absent, since many people do get there before the gates have opened. However, you do get to enjoy the basilica with a comparatively lesser crowd around.
