We got the teleferico ( cable car) here. You get amazing views of the city and plenty of space and fresher air to that of the city. Unfortunately we were limited to time as we had our flight home that evening but I would love to return to spend longer here. There are many forest paths and it would be... More

I took the teléferico up there, which was pleasant. Once up, you are on your own, there are no indications or whatsoever.

Amazing expanse right in downtown Madrid. You can choose just to walk around the lake and have a bite to eat or a drink or you can do a VERY long walk deep into the park. If you go to the cable car station in the center, you will get a good view over the park and back over Madrid.... More

I walked to the river at the back of the royal palace and there, at the other site of the river, begins a big park, the Casa de Campo. Actualy you can walk from the city center into a countryside landscape: that is unique. I walked a morning into the park. There were not many people, even at the lake.... More

I have visited the Casa De Campo Madrid Zoo a few times and love it everytime I go.. the metro takes you to Casa De Campo metro and it is 10-15 minutes walk from there.. I love Zoos so loved this and had a great day in the sun.

I visited Casa de Campo over the San Isidro festivities in May. Whilst the centre of Madrid was alive with lot's of things going on I decided to take the metro to Principe Pio and then a 10 minute walk up the hill brought me to the cable car station. 4 euros 1 way or 11 euros return -- I... More

Just on the outskirt of downtown Madrid, you can get here taking the Madrid Teleferic for about $5 Euros roundtrip, great place to relax by the lake with some wine and tapas!

If you begin to feel closed in my the sprawling metropolis that is Madrid then head to this nearby get away. It was nice to walk around the lake on a comfortable Saturday afternoon with the locals and their children. We watched the boaters in the lake while having excellent Tapas and beer and a lakeside restaurant. There are beautiful... More

Grab yourself some nibbles and wine and catch the cable car to the park. Only a 11 minute trip from the city centre but a great place to "Chillax" away from the city hubbub.
