I can't access a confluence space even though I am the administrator and there are no restrictions for that space??

Navigate to General ConfigurationSpace Permissions. At the bottom of Space Permissions you can see a list of each space. Find the space in question and press the Recover Permissions to grant your account VIEW + ADMIN permissions to that space.

Hello Sandra,

Does the space show as restricted? Are you a Confluence Admin?

The space is not restricted and I am an admin

Admin doesn't mean "automatically see everything".  As an admin, you should be able to see the space permissions at least, then you can check that you have the access to the space to see it
