Visit to the most emblematic shops in Bilbao

Routes through the emblematic shops of Bilbao

BilbaoDendak resumes visits to the most emblematic shops in Bilbao through this initiative of guided tours open to the public and in person that highlights the value of local commerce. As a novelty, and in parallel, the in-person routes will be complemented on the social networks with a weekly space in which various shops will offer the public practical tips and tricks related to their respective specialities.

The popular HemenGO SHOPPING guided tours through emblematic shops in Bilbao are back and this time they are proposing plans and routes related to some of the events on Bilbao's socio-cultural agenda. In this edition, the routes are committed to 'signing up' for some of the most important events in the city, creating plans to round off an afternoon at the cinema or a day at the museums.

Thus, for example, the routes programmed for November and December will include routes linked to the Bilbao Zinebi Documentary and Short Film Festival, the 'Women of Abstraction' exhibition at the Guggenheim Museum and the Christmas campaign.  The proposal, which once again this year has the collaboration of the Basque Government, begins its new edition on Thursday 18 November at 18:30.

Practical online tips

This bilbaoDendak initiative aims to promote local commerce, while at the same time offering an original leisure alternative for both the local public and occasional visitors to Bilbao. An opportunity to see what is never shown, what is behind the scenes of the most unique shops in the city. And also secrets and anecdotes of local history that are rarely found in tourist guides.

As a novelty, this year the routes will be complemented by social networks, where, in keeping with the original spirit of this initiative, our shopkeepers will share tips on wellbeing, sustainability or trends and seasonal products.

It will be a weekly space on the web with practical tips ranging from how to make pizza dough fluffy, to removing wine stains from clothes or how to prepare footwear for rainy days.

This section, as varied as the commercial offer in Bilbao, will include all kinds of tricks and remedies as well as recommendations related to health and wellbeing, with a special interest in those recommendations that allow us to take advantage of these channels to disseminate consumption models linked to sustainability.

To participate in the routes it is necessary to register by sending an e-mail to or by calling 609 196 175
