Top six things to do in Madrid

1. Explore the Royal Palace of Madrid

Madrid’s Royal Palace – Palacio Real in Spanish – is synonymous with regal grandeur. As one of the largest royal palaces in the world, it’s a testament to Spain’s rich history and royal legacy. Explore 18 halls decorated with tapestries, frescoes, and chandeliers. Admire the Throne Room and Royal Armory, where you can see original armor and weapons up close. The Royal Palace, with its baroque façade and Plaza de la Armeria – bookended by the Almudena Cathedral – offers a glimpse into the world of Spanish royalty. This major Madrid landmark is a must for any visitor.

2. Discover Spanish art history at the Prado

Step into a treasure trove of art at Madrid’s Prado Museum. This world-famous institution is home to a vast collection of masterpieces and is a must for art lovers. Admire the renowned works of Spanish greats such as Velázquez, Goya, and El Greco, which showcase their unparalleled talent and vision. Don’t miss Las Meninas, Goya’s oppressive black paintings and Bosch’s surreal Garden of Earthly Delights.

3. Contemporary art at the Reina Sofía Museum

Located a stone’s throw from the Prado, the Reina Sofía Museum displays an impressive collection of modern and contemporary artworks, including Picasso’s haunting anti-war masterpiece Guernica. Explore the thought-provoking installations, avant-garde sculptures, and groundbreaking works by artists such as Dalí and Miró. In the Reina Sofía Museum, you travel through the evolution of modern art, so to speak. A visit is a must if you want to discover the latest developments in the field of artistic expression.

4. A day of adventure at Parque Warner

About a 40-minute drive or an hour by public transport from central Madrid you can experience a day full of adrenaline and fun at Parque Warner. With an abundance of rides, live shows, and much-loved cartoon characters, it’s a great outing for kids and adults alike. Brace yourself for hair-raising rollercoasters like Superman: La Atracción de Acero and explore themed areas such as Gotham City and Hollywood Boulevard. A day at Parque Warner promises endless excitement, fond memories, and an escape from the busy city.

5. Experience the soccer madness in Madrid

With several professional clubs in LaLiga, Madrid is a place of pilgrimage for soccer fans. The first stadium on everyone’s list is the Santiago Bernabéu. This ground has witnessed many historic soccer moments for both Real Madrid and the Spanish national team. Explore the trophy-laden museum and take a tour of the highlights of the stadium. (Due to construction work to improve the fan experience, the tour is currently shortened.)

A second stadium not to be missed is the Cívitas Metropolitano of Atlético Madrid. In the Territorio Atleti Museum, you can learn all about Real Madrid’s bitter local rivals. You can also visit the dressing rooms, press room and the pitch.

6. Admire the collection of the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum

Discover an extraordinary collection spanning centuries of art history at the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum in Madrid. From Renaissance masterpieces to modern marvels, the museum presents a wide variety of artistic styles and movements. Admire works by Van Gogh, Monet, Degas and more. Must-see artworks include part of Duccio’s Maestà, Caravaggio’s Saint Catherine of Alexandria, and Hopper’s Hotel Room.

Get ready to visit Madrid

When’s the best time to visit Madrid?

Spring and the fall in Madrid are mild and sunny, which is why they are the best times to visit the city. July and August are considered low season because the high temperatures make walking about uncomfortable. Many attractions adopt summer schedules as locals go to the beach, leading to stores and restaurants closing for the holidays. But, if the heat doesn’t bother you, then summer may be the best time to explore a quieter, less-crowded Madrid. Winter, except for the Christmas period, is another great time to catch Spain’s capital when less crowded. It’s quite cold, but temperatures rarely drop below freezing. Also, ticket and accommodation prices are lower, making the cold even more bearable.

How many days should you spend in Madrid?

Three days will give you enough time to visit Madrid’s most famous sights and get a feel for the city and its different districts. But if you can make it a five-day trip, then you’ll have the chance to explore even lesser-known sites and experience the madrileño lifestyle – with late meals, siestas, and, of course, fiestas. Take a stroll through Madrid’s charming neighborhoods, enjoy the Retiro Park, experience the famously late nightlife, get a taste of the city’s tapa scene and even take a day trip to one of the nearby historic cities, such as Toledo, Segovia or Avila.

Where are the best places to stay in Madrid?

Neighborhoods in Madrid come in all shapes and sizes, fitting everyone’s needs. And thanks to an excellent public transportation system, it’s easy to get around the capital. Sol is the historic center, where popular attractions such as Plaza Mayor and the Royal Palace are within easy walking distance. If you want to experience Madrid’s student atmosphere, stay in Malasaña, a fairly central area, where you’ll find the city’s trendiest cafés and nightlife. If you’re looking for a more exclusive atmosphere, stay in Salamanca, with its trademark wide avenues filled with designer stores and culinary hotspots. Finally, for a combination of urban green spaces and culture, head to Retiro, where you’ll find the city’s largest park and the Prado Museum within walking distance.
