Exploring Madrid with children

Madrid is a city well prepared to meet children's needs and tastes. It is a city that offers children and the entire family all-year-round activities, with the assurance that the kids will have fun safely in a number of different attractions.

Madrid's own natural environments offer many entertainment possibilities for children. with parks such as Retiro, a natural jewel in the capital where they can ride on a boat or visit the emblematic Palacio de Cristal. Madrid Río is another great waterside park with different areas for children's entertainment. It is an excellent choice for playing sports and cycling. Last but not least, Casa de Campo has a forest with its own lake for kayaking or canoe riding.

In Madrid's Casa de Campo resort, there are two major theme parks. Here you can visit the Zoo Aquarium, one of the best European zoos with more than 500 animal varieties and species. The other is Madrid's Theme Park (Parque de Atracciones), which is ideal for a fun day out on the rides. Faunia is another excellent theme park that lets your children get to know the life of different animal species in their own habitat. There is also Warner Park, which spans over 30,000 square metres and consists of 2 wave pools and interactive attractions that are based on movies such as Batman.

The cultural aspect of Madrid is also very well covered. Among the many museums in the capital, some are specifically dedicated to children. Near Puerta del Sol, there is the interesting Museo del Ratoncito Pérez, where children can learn surprising details about cartoon characters. There is also the Wax Museum in Plaza de Colón. It has many galleries that reflect childlike figures in highly accurate detail. Other museums such as the Ciencias Naturales, el Arqueológico, and del Ferrocarril offer workshops and activities that your children will love.

In addition, leisure activities will never end in Madrid. For the more curious child, the city has a planetarium that broadcasts astronomy, with interesting stellar projections. Those who enjoy winter activities, even in mid-summer, the Ice Palace (Palacio del Hielo) offers an Olympic skating rink. If you want to afford skiing without traveling to a ski resort, head to Madrid Snowzone. This is an indoor resort with less than 23 kilometers long. And, of course, those who want to cool off, there are many private and public pools in the city. Try the water slides at Aquópolis water park in Villanueva de la Cañada or in San Fernando.
