How to get from Madrid Airport to Charmatin Train Station

by ncym09

Can you walk from the Madris airport to the Charmatin train station or is it safer and faster to take a taxi? OR, is there a better way?
How long will it take to walk or take a taxi?

Thank You

Uncovered the following, so you could do it in reverse.

Transportation from the Madrid Chamartin Train Station
To the Madrid Airport:

Cercanias regional train to Nueovs Ministerios Station, then Metro Line 8

Also, the train station is apparently 6kms from the airport.

From the airport: Metro line 8 to Nuevos Ministerios, then, line 10 to Chamartín.

walking from barajas to Chamartín could be potentially suicideal, given the traffic on the urban motorways and the style of driving.

Metro de Madrid Line 8 to Nuevos Ministerios, then RENFE local trains - Cercanías - up through the tunnel (Tubo de la Risa) to Chamartín.

Taxis are EXPENSIVE, and they POLLUTE.

The Metro is electric, hence cleaner. You can even get an Abono Turístico Regional de Transportes rover ticket (metropolitan area, one day) for just 5.20 euros.

As mentioned, don't even think about walking. The metro works well to Nuevos Ministerios in the Madrid central city and is cheap, the price of a metro ticket plus a small airport supplemental fee. However, if you have luggage you will be going up and down stairs/escalators, in and out of metro trains to get to Chamartin. Chamartin is relatively close to the Nuevos Ministerios station. We took at taxi and it was less than 5 euro. There are also shuttles and buses from the airport. Karl

Travel Tips for Madrid


by surferob

I arrived in Madrid on New Year's Day at about 8 o'clock in the morning. It ended up being a pretty quiet morning with lots of closed shops, but I will always remember there being young people scattered everywhere, dressed impeccably, making their way home from the previous night's celebratioins. And there I was, backpack on my back, map in hand, coming off a night of half-sleep on the plane, coooold, trying to find a place to stay. I took an extra moment to stop and notice the revelers, and be a bit jealous.

Eating Tapas

by roamer61

Tapas are the famous Spanish Hor'deuvres that everyone eats. Madrid has them all over the place. They come in small portions or larger portions. So you can order half or fill Racions. The larger order can make a light meal. Many people go to different Tapas Bars trying different Tapas. Examples can be olives, Calamare Frtos (Squid) or Albondingas (Meatballs). One cannot go to Madrid or Spain for that matter without trying Tapas.

El Valle de los Caidos

by ange_famine

The Valley of the Fallen is Colonel Franco's tomb. He ordered its construction as a monument to the memory of those who fell in the Spanish Civil War and the hall built inside the mountain now hosts his tomb.
The place is massive, as it contains an abbey, gardens and the hall itself.
The hill can be seen from far away as it is topped by a cross more than a 150 metres tall, the tallest cross in the world.
Because of its beauty as well as the controversy around its creation and the fact that it is now the resting place of one of the European dictators, the Valle of the Caidos should be a stop for the history-loving tourist.

Take the kids to Juan Carlos I Park

by SirRichard

If you have kids and a few days in Madrid, you can take them to this huge park where they have many activities. Ideal for bycicles.
To get there, take the Metro towards the airport and stop in the previous stop (Campo de las Naciones)

Great house music!

by Lizchiq about Pacha

There was a "puente" holiday and we went there two nights in a row once. We would go there quite often.
The dancing there is really fun, because there's all sorts of stages and platforms and all that. The music is great too, if you like electronica/ house/ techno. The club is very well-known for its music.
Oddly enough (if you have never been to Spain), the club gets good around 3:30 AM. Crazy, right? It's a mix.
