Casa de Campo, Madrid

4.1
#11 of 56 in Parks in Madrid
Park · Historic Site
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.

  • This is an absolutely stunning park. I ran around here for 16 miles and did not cover half of the trails/paths available. There are lots of picnic areas as well as drinking water fountains dotted...  more »
  • We walked for 3 hours through the park and only scratched its surface, it is so huge. Its an amazing, calming place to take a lengthy stroll.  more »
  • I thought the park was decent. I'd say that Parque del Buen Retiro is definently way more interesting to walk through, however the view of the city of Madrid and the amusement park is pretty cool...  more »

  • Beautiful place. We were in the ZOO. There are dolphin shows. I have a picture with a dolphin. You can see pandas too. It is the best zoological garden I saw to date. Great place for whole family. If you want to visit, plan for the whole day, the ZOO is huge. If you buy tickets online you won't have to wait in queue.
  • A wonderful part to hike, run, or bike ride for hours. I hiked to casa de Campo I was impressed with the beauty and cleanliness of the park. I couldn't believe I was in the middle of Madrid. If you have the time, go get a street bike and take a tour. Or go pack a picnic basket and go for a leisurely walk, picnic, and nap in the park.
  • The place is huge. Animal enclosures are very well maintained. Lots of things for the kids to do and see. The food is the worst I have tasted in Spain. You see the local people take in there own food and you quickly find out why!
  • Good routes for cycling. Many are unsuitable for road bikes, though. Google Maps could do with adding a choice between bike types, as it kept telling me to turn onto rocky paths.
  • Nice place to have a good dinner near the lake. And yes you can park the car. And surprisingly not so crowded. Must be that everybody is on holiday. Worth repeating to do a nice dinner. During the day for lunch to hot in my opinion. Just my 2cents. Going there around 18:00 and make a long walk and than have a great dinner with friends & family. I recomend to visit it when you are in the Madrid area
