Among the many tourist attractions, the Casa de Campo is a must-visit place during your Madrid city tours if you are into beautiful nature and an amazing ecosystem. Located in the west of downtown Madrid with a total area of 1750 hectares, La Casa de Campo is one of the biggest public parks in Europe. Surprisingly, this park is twice as bigger as the Bois de Boulogne Park in Paris.
While strolling through the park, you will be able to see many species of animals, enjoy the nature, practice sports, or eat and drink while having fun all along the way. Obviously, this park is a great place for kids as well as adults equally. Given below are few of the many fun things that you can do in the park.
Visit the Zoo
In the Zoo Aquarium of Madrid, you can see many incredible animals like the giant panda, Asian elephant, monocle cobra, dolphins, and Siberian tigers. There are around 6000 animals of 500 different species here.
Have Fun at the Theme Park
Parque de Atracciones is a theme park located inside Casa de Campo. The theme park is mainly divided into four zones: Zona Tranquilidad, Zona del Maquinismo, Zona de la Naturaleza, and Nickelodeonland. Each of these zones has different varieties of rides to offer.
View the City from a Cable Car
You can travel in Teleféricom, a cable car that takes you through the woods of the park. Additionally, you can also listen to the city’s history and explore the monuments as you pass along. During evenings, you can capture the beautiful view of the sunset from the cable car.
Explore the Bike Trails
Though running is a good option, bike trailing can save you a lot of time and effort. With its perfect ambiance, trailing along the woods in Casa de Campo will be an amazing activity for adults as well as kids. You can rent a regular bike or a mountain bike according to your choice from the rental shops, and start trailing on your own.
Do Some Kayaking
There is a small lake at just a five-minute walk from the park’s east gate, where you can do many aquatic activities. Kayaking is the most famous water activity here; you can even join classes to learn to paddle along 300 km from the seashore. Alternatively, rent the equipment and embark on your own adventure.
