How to get to Sabadell

Sabadell is one of the largest cities in Catalonia and is located just 20 km north of Barcelona. For this reason, the easiest way to get there is to travel first to Barcelona and then to Sabadell. There are many combinations to get to Sabadell from Barcelona, but here we propose some of the easiest options:

From the Josep Tarradellas Barcelona – El Prat Airport:

The best option is to take the Aerobús (A1 if you arrive to T1 or A2 if you arrive to T2; check departure times and fares here) to the center of Barcelona (Plaça Catalunya).

Once at Plaça Catalunya, you may take the train of Ferrocarrils de la Generalitat de Catalunya (FGC line S2; check departure times and fares here) that will take you directly to Sabadell city center (Sabadell Plaça Major station). Note that in Google Maps the location of the stations in Plaça Catalunya are imprecise, and therefore we recommend you to use this map:

The whole trip from Barcelona airport to Sabadell city center using the Aerobús and the Ferrocarrils de la Generalitat de Catalunya should take from one and a half to two hours.

A cheaper, but somewhat slower way: In Terminal T2 of Josep Tarradellas-El Prat airport, take the train of Rodalies de Catalunya (RENFE line R2N; check departure times and fares here) to “Barcelona-Sants”. In case your flight lands in Terminal 1, there are free shuttle buses to go from Terminal 1 to Terminal 2. See next option on how to continue your trip from Barcelona-Sants to Sabadell. 

From Barcelona-Sants Train Station:

Take the train of the RENFE line R4 towards Terrasa or Manresa to the station "Sabadell Centre".

To go from Barcelona to Sabadell you must buy the 2-zones ticket, either if you take RENFE or FGC trains.
