Real Madrid is the main soccer team in Madrid and the sport is considered a religion! A colleague here in the US told me to take a tour of the stadium and I am glad that I did. It's a 10 minute cab ride from the Westin where I was staying. The tour is not guided so you can go at your own pace. To see some of the trophies/memorabilia/trophies/etc. at the museum inside was amazing. Also, the stadium is a wonder to see! Some of the greatest soccer players from all over the world have played for Real Madrid in this stadium! The history is amazing. The only places that were off limites were actually on the field and in the home team's locker room(though I did get to see the visitors locker room!) I walked back to the hotel(appr 30-40 minutes) and that was also a nice trip through that part of Madrid. I would def recommend! The price was 10 Euros when I visited.
We took the metro to Santiago Bernabeu Station. Real Madrid's stadium is right next to the stop. You can tour the stadium for 16 Euros. We just walked round the outside of the stadium, took some photos and visited the club shop. There were a couple of restaurants, bars in the stadium, too.
The Santiago Bernabéu Stadium was inaugurated on 14 December 1947 with a match between Real Madrid and the Portuguese club Belenenses. At that time the stadium was considered the best and most modern stadium in the world. With it’s first expansion in 1954, it also became the biggest stadium in the world. The man who led this project and made it successful was Santiago Bernabéu, after whom the stadium was named.
It has 80 400 seats and is the club arena for Real Madrid.
Don’t miss the Real Madrid museum which is located in the stadium.
This was my #1 thing on my to do list while in Madrid. I have never been to a european Footbal(soccer) match. First off we had to get tickets and after the concierge at the Palace Hotel tried to make us pay him 175 euro's each we decided to goto the stadium (took the subway right to it). There were still tickets for sale and the line was about 100ft long so we decided to buy them from a scalper. We paid 60 Euro's for face value 45 euro tickets and did not have to wait inline. The tickets were on the third tier out of 5 tiers and were good seats.
If you feel like snacking while you are at the game you might want to buy you're food outside and bring it in(it's allowed). There are no vendors walking around in the stands during the game so if you want a snack you have to go get it yourself and the selection is not great, they do have bacon sammy's and hotdogs, also beer. Its a fun atmosphere, and very safe.
