    Countryside in the city?

    by nhcram Updated Feb 6, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    On the outskirts of the city to the west is the Casa de Campo. Formally hunting grounds it is now a 1800 hectares site of shrubland containing a zoo an amusement park, swimming pools, tennis courts and plenty of places to sit and picnic with friends and family.
    The most fun way to get there is by the Telerifico. A gondola style cable car. It rises high above Madrid and the trip from the city to the park is 11 minutes. It seemed more like 111 minutes to me but it was worth it for the photo opportunities. You can also get there by metro and bus.

    For a great view of the Casa de Campo

    by Jefie Written May 13, 2008

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Casa de Campo used to be the royal family's hunting estate. It is located close enough to the Royal Palace, on the other side of the Manzanares River, and it was turned into a public park back in 1930. To enjoy a great view of the park and of the city, it is possible to go on a telepherique ride (aerial tramway) between the Parque del Oeste and the Casa de Campo. The two stations are 2.5 km apart, so it's just long enough to take a few pictures and admire the scenery without becoming boring. There's also a pre-recorded tape that plays during the ride to describe the landscape and buildings that can be seen.

    From April to September, the teleferico is open every day from noon to sundown. Round-way tickets cost 5 Euros.

    Teleférico de Madrid (Madrid Cable Railway)

    Great place to relax while taking in the views of Casa de Campo. I could see as far as Parque de Atracciones, Almúdena Cathedral and the Royal Palace. Inside the cabin there's an audioguide (in Spanish only) that tells you where and what to see. Perfect after a day of walking.

    Should hunger attack, there's a cafeteria where you can enjoy a good meal. There's also a souvenir store.

    A place to relax

    by barbskie Updated Feb 13, 2009

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I think it is the largest parkland of Madrid. Commonly, a getaway from many Madrilenos but for sure also for local and foreign tourists. For kids and sporty, a great area and also for picnicking. There is also cafeteria nad restaurant at the cable car station. It was not one of my major listing to visit but since we were just close to the area walking at the Paseo Pintor de Rosales, we decided to have a cable car ride and spent some short tranquil moments in the park. We stayed there before sunset to catch a nice capture of the setting down of the sun at Devod Temple. Now i may say, it is a must!

    Housing over 2000 species of mammals, a visit to the zoo is an excellent day out in Madrid. They have 70 varieties of poisonous snakes, including vipers from Gambon and the black mambo, which is considered the most dangerous snake in the world. Dolphins, seals and sea lions give regular performances throughout the day.

    ride over a huge park!

    by mindcrime Written Sep 3, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    One nice half day in the city can be done with a visit to Casa de Campo, the biggest park of Madrid that was formerly a hunting spot. The best way is to use the cable teleferico that rides for about 15 minutes over the park and the Manzanares river and you can enjoy the nice view from up there. The windows weren’t clear enough though for great pics. The park is peaceful with only a few people that cycle or running. There is a lake with some cafes, an aquarium and a zoo (a big one, with pandas, snakes etc).

    Address: west side of madrid

    Directions: by Metro to Lago station or by funicular (at Paseo Pintor Rosales, near parquet del Oeste).

    Its main highlights are:
    - The lake with terraces for food and drinks
    - The zoo
    - The theme parks (Parque de Atracciones)
    - The swimming pools (from June to September)

    Directions: You can get here by Metro (Lago) or by funicular (take it at Paseo Pintor Rosales, near Moncloa Metro).

    A ride with the Teleférico gives you some great views over Casa de Campo and Madrid in general.

    A single trip with the Teleférico takes a bit more than 10 Minutes and covers a dictance of about 2,500m. When I used it in February 2005, the price for a round-trip ticket for an adult was 4.45 Euros.

    I loved every second of the trip and took some great photos (there are small windows to use your camera).

    Parque de Atracciones

    by marielexoteria Updated Aug 6, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Now that I had a roller coaster buddy, of course I had to visit Parque de Atracciones (P de A)! I bought the tickets online on their website, and upon collecting our bracelets we got our picture taken.

    Then we proceeded to ride the ferris wheel, roller coasters and free fall ride (Lanzadera). The park is big and didn't feel crowded, it had lots of green spaces and shadow and several fountains with drinkable water, so you could buy one bottle of something and refill it for free.

    One thing I have to say about the roller coaster rides in Madrid is that they go up rather fast, so when you come down or twist and turn, you do it with force!!!! My favorite ride of the park was Abismo.

    P de A is inside the Casa de Campo area and is a place where you could bring your own food and have a picnic at.

    Address: Casa de Campo

    Directions: Metro: Batán.

    Casa de Campo - choose your day out there

    by malaga-girl Written May 18, 2010

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Casa de Campo is a huge parkland just outside of the city centre. It includes a boating area on the lake, cycle tracks, walking areas, cafes, the teleferico, zoo and the parque de atraciones.
    The area was known for prostitution, but this is no longer the case. The teleferico is a relaxing ride and it is a great area for a picnic at the end of the ride (make sure you get a return ticket or you have a VERY long walk!).
    The park, I believe, used to belong to the royals, but it is now public parkland with a number of parking areas and three metro stations (all on line ten) depending on which area you want to go to. Near the lake there is an information hut about the grounds. (metro lago)
    If you go to the Zoo or the atractions park, the metro is casa de campo, a short walk to the park and some fifteen minutes to the zoo. Most of the park does not allow cars, so it is safe to cycle and walk.
    At the weekend the area is full of locals relaxing and enjoying the nature.

    The Zoo of Madrid, at Casa del Campo, next to the Lago metro station, in the western outskirts, shouldn't be overlooked, either; it is one of the largest in Europe, with natural animal habitats and two pandas (which seem to sleep all day).

    Casa De Campo is a pretty area of parkland and forest which is in the west of Madrid. The zoo and aquarium are located here.

    It is a large area and so good for walking. However, watch out for the numerous prostitutes that can been seen standing around various parts of the park.
