I don't know of any cheap flights to San Sebastian from anywhere, but to Bilbao you can fly from Amsterdam or various places in Germany (Berlin, Hamburg, Frankfurt-am-Main) with Air Berlin and from Stuttgart and Cologne/Bonn with Tuifly.

Hi:
You can flight with Ryanair from Frankfurt (Hahn) to Santander and then by bus to S.Sebastian

PS According to this you can only fly to San Sebastian at all with Iberia: http://www.spanish-web.com/airports/san-sebastian.php. So you would have to look at flights to nearby airports like Bilbao and Santander instead.

That was my experience several years ago in that only Iberia went to SS. You may also want to try Biarritz and then bus down or Vitoria Gaetiz (sp?) which is relatively close by and is more of an industrial town in the Basque area and thus possibly have more flight alternatives. Karl

Bilbao is much closer to SS than Santander, actually Bilbao is just half way from both cities. I would suggest to fly to Bilbao, and take a bus, just one hour.

This is a bit late but might be useful to other travellers.
Currently, low cost flights to Bilbao from Brussels are operated by Brussels Airlines (inherited from Sabena that went bust), from Germany you can fly Air Berlin. Most of them involve going via Mallorca!! but they are cheap. Lufthansa has several flights a day linking Bilbao with Berlin, Frankfurt, Munich, Cologne, Dusseldorf. Although it is a regular airline, they will have special offers on the smaller airports like Dusseldorf, so you can get good deals.
No direct low cost or other flights from Netherlands as yet.

Travel Tips for San Sebastián

Udaletxea (Council house)

by Peret

For historical and geographical reasons, Donosti's architecture has the influence of english, french, spanish and basque style. An exemple is the council house (Udaletxea), near to old town, and the sea. Beautiful building with a beautiful garden in front.

Place to enjoy the sweet life

by alweis about Barrenetxe

Great place to have a cup of coffee (or tea) in downtown Donostia. There are several locations of this pasteleria. We enjoyed one at Plaza de Guipuzkoa. This is a favorite local place as we saw drinks were getting prepared the moment locals coming through the door and when they sit down at the bar their drinks were ready.
We, the tourists, had to wait for our turn but we didn't mind. No rush!
Check the website.

English Cemetary

by mikey_e

Spain and the United Kingdom have a long history of mutual aid, despite the ravages of mass tourism and the long-standing dispute over the status of Gibraltar. In fact, the rise of Revolutionary France and its threat to the established order of hereditary monarchies and quasi-theocracies pushed the crowns of England, Spain and Portugal into greater cooperation than ever before. When Napoleon invaded the Iberian Peninsula and established his own puppet governments in Spain and Portugal, the British came to the aid of the absolute monarchies and launched successful invasions along the Spanish and Portuguese coasts. Together with Iberian armies and guerrillas, they pushed out Napoleon’s army and restored, in Spain at least, a brutal and repressive monarchy (the Portuguese underwent far more profound political changes, not least because of Brazil’s declaration of independence). The result is that all throughout coastal cities in the Iberian Peninsula there are memorials and cemeteries for the British soldiers who lost their lives in the name of Spanish and Portuguese independence. In Donostia, the British cemetery lies on Monte Urgull, on the slope that faces the sea. It is clearly marked, but unfortunately not well maintained, so seeing the graves and the massive memorial can be quite tricky. The cemetery was opened to the public in 1924, although it dates from 1813. The official guides lead one to believe that this is a general military cemetery, but I found only graves belonging to British soldiers who died in the battle of 1813.

Santa Klarako Uhartea

by mikey_e

Santa Klarako Uhartea, or Santa Clara Island, is the beautiful green island near the mouth of the Concha Bay. For some reason, I was always under the impression that the island was some sort of refuge and that you could only visit it with a permit. This is not at all true – the island has a small beach at low-tide (no beach at high tide) complete with lifeguard, showers and a bar. There is regular ferry service from the docks to the island every half-hour. Apart from the beach amenities, the only other construction on the island is a lighthouse that sits at the very top. There are plenty of picnic areas, but of course you must do your part in helping to keep the island clean and litter-free.

San Sebastian

by gaston_febus

San Sebastian or Donostia is a very interesting town. It lies on the Spanish Basque coast and is steeped in history. Go and wander around the old town eating tapas and drinking beer and in summer go swimming off one of the beaches.
