Madrid is a vibrant city: life floods all over it and it is impossible not to have something to do! In this article, we’d like to introduce you to the many possible activities you can do in each season in our Madrid!
- Stroll around the Parque Quinta de Los Molinos: this is a beautiful park in the neighborhood of San Salvador and it has been declared a «historical park». February is the best moment to visit it: almond trees bloom and all the park is painted in pink. A magical place in which it is mandatory to take some photos!
- Visit the many beautiful museums of Madrid: since it’s cold and going out could not be that pleasing sometimes, why don’t you enjoy the cultural offer of this city? Apart from the most famous Museo del Prado, Museo Reina Sofía and Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza, the Museo Municipal de Arte Contemporáneo, the Museo Cerralbo, the Museo del Romanticismo and the Museo Lázaro Galdiano are waiting for you!
- Do some physical activity in one of the many parks in Madrid: life blooms and it is so nice to breathe some fresh air! Try to go jogging in Casa de Campo (around its beautiful lake) or Parque del Retiro: you won’t regret it!
- Drinking something in one of the many rooftops are a great way to enjoy your summer free time in Madrid! Open air grants some refreshment from the baking hot temperatures of the city during summer days! Some of the best views can be seen from the Hotel Riu, the Azotea of the Círculo de bellas Artes and the Picalagartos!
- Outdoor cinema in La Casa Encendida
- Leaves start to fall, temperatures start to get low… and theatres start their new seasons! The theatre environment in Madrid is vibrant as the city itself! Check out the websites of the main theatres in Madrid as well as the off theates: the Teatro Español, the Centro Dramático Nacional ( Teatro María Guerrero and Teatro Valle Inclán) or the Teatro Off La Latina offer great plays!
- Madrid Salvaje: one of the main musical events in Madrid, this one aims to bring the best of reggae, rap, and trap to the capital!
