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, famous for its art galleries and nightlife, it is also very family-friendly. Kids will enjoy many of the main sightseeing attractions, and will revel in the many fiestas and events held in the city streets. The variety of attractions aimed specifically at children is also impressive and should keep the whole family happy.

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 (kids always seem to love castles and treasures), and certain little boys and girls will 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 Madrid Zoo and Aquarium are perennial favourites and there is a Safari Park for additional animal viewing. One of the other highlights for children (and many adults!) is the Parque de Atracciones amusement park, which is large and modern and offers plenty of thrills as well as amusements for younger children.
