Things to see and do with kids in Madrid
Madrid Kids Attractions
Madrid has endless fun and entertainment to offer kids on
holiday. While it is a bustling city, known for its art galleries
and nightlife, it is also very family-friendly. The variety of
children's attractions in Madrid is profuse, enough to keep
everyone happy (parents included!).
Attractions range from palaces and markets to parks and playgrounds. One of the favourite palaces to visit is Palacio Real, with its vast treasure collection, and kids also love seeing Santiago Bernabéu stadium, home to another of Spain's 'treasures' - the Real Madrid football team. The Teleférico, a cable car from Paseo del Pintor Rosales to the Casa de Campo, is another exciting Madrid adventure for children.
The best time to take kids on holiday to Madrid is in spring or autumn, when the weather is at its most pleasant and there aren't too many tourists around. However, in May there are a couple of events that attract quite a crowd and families may need to book accommodation and hire cars well in advance.
