Casa de Campo, Madrid

4.0
#11 of 40 in Parks in Madrid
Originally enjoyed by Fernando VI as a royal hunting ground, is now the largest green space in Madrid, with extensive bike and walking trails, a zoo and aquarium, sports arena, amusement park, and cable car. In contrast to the manicured grounds of Retiro Park, this area grows wild and allows visitors to see Madrid's ecosystem in its natural state. Scout out a picnic spot in the sun-dappled forest, walk along creeks, and read up on the local plant and animal life on the informational plaques. Watch for the bright green monk parakeets that flit among the treetops. Young visitors will love the many play areas and the amusement park. Finish off your visit with a ride on the cable car, taking in bird's-eye views of the Temple of Debod, the Parque del Oeste Rose Garden, and the Royal Palace on your way back to the city station, which is near Metro Argüelles.

  • We were a summer day and went out with a boat to take a walk around the pond. It gave us the Sun and the trip was pleasant, there were many people and some canoeists were training.

  • Huge park, with various species and of great antiquity most copies, making it a place of lush vegetation, with a huge Lake, very pleasant to walk or do sports. There are many areas reserved for parking on sand terraces, and also highly recommended if you go by public transport or bicycle. At the Lake you can ride boats to paddle. Very nice to enjoy it as a couple, with family or friends. The entrance is free. Within the Casa de Campo are the Zoo of Madrid and the amusement park, both with payment of entry, logically.

  • Nice and quiet place, just at the exit of metro Lake (linea10). Highly recommended, admission € 4.50 for a relaxing day just outside the city centre of madrid. P.s. the structure does not have a bar, there are fountains and picnic areas to have a meal.

  • This is a huge and pretty wild park right by the centre of the city. Yes there is a fun fair and a zoo and good bars and restaurants by the lake, but what I like best is just walking into the wilder parts where you are alone. Avoid the area immediately underneath the cable cars. It's a rent boy area that's not very nice. It's best in winter and spring. The summer is just too hot.
  • Casa de Campo Park is a huge and kind of a wild park. Is located right by the centre of the city. In this area is also the zoo of Madrid, nice pubs and restaurants. Its awesome to visit it in the fall.
  • Its.. Very dusty not a lot of green and a bit of a let down. But the good points are access to the zoo, animal park, amusement park and teleferico via metro
  • We accessed via teleferico. The ride is short (10min) and the views are ok. The restaurant is clean and has great views. The paella is specially nice and the portions are large. My kids (4 and 7) specially enjoyed the soft play area, it is NOT free, but worth it to keep them entertain ed before heading back. Nice little lunch time plan.
  • Beautiful park to walk and bike and lots of other things to do. Wonderful view the royal palace from the lake.

Where to stay in Madrid

The Spanish capital is known for its array of distinct neighborhoods each with its own appeal. An affordable and easy-to-navigate metro system, which makes it is easy to get around Madrid gives you more flexibility in choosing where to stay. Perhaps the most popular choice is Puerta del Sol, the heart of the city center and one of the main tourist attractions with its numerous shops, affordable hotels, and restaurants. Close by is Gran Via street, one of the city's main arteries, which is also home to a number of hotels. A short walk from here is Plaza España where the city's most iconic landmarks lie, including the Royal Palace and the Teatro Royal. For somthing outside the traditional tourist areas, consider staying in La Latina or Malasaña, two bohemian neighborhoods that offer a wide range of eclectic shops, quaint cafes, and lively bars.
