Christmas in the center of Madrid
Christmas in the center of Madrid
Spend a weekend or your Christmas holidays in Spain’s capital at the most beautiful time of the year. Undoubtedly, there is no better season than Christmas to enjoy one of the most metropolitan cities in Spain.

We tell you the best plans on this magical time of the year and we suggest you what to do and what to see at Christmas in the center of Madrid. Stay at our Hotel Cortezo, in the heart of the city, and enjoy the following plans.

Lit Nature in Madrid
Enrique Tierno Galván Park
will host this year 2023 one of the most beautiful Christmas shows in Madrid: the Lit Nature. An outdoor show that will take you through a fantasy world full of majestic butterflies, giant dragonflies and cheerful bumblebees. Enjoy the exhibition from November 21, 2023 to January 21, 2024.

A dream experience full of lights and color to live the magic of Christmasat sunset. Because in this experience, when darkness floods the city, Lit Nature shines.

Christmas Market in the Plaza Mayor
One of the oldest Christmas markets in Spain is the one whic is held every year in the Plaza Mayor in Madrid. You will find Christmas items such as ornaments, lights and trees and figures for the nativity scene. A free activity really enjoyable for these days. It will be open from November 24 until December 31.

And what do you think if, after your Madrid Christmas Market tour, you approach to San Ginés cafeteria for a delicious snack of churros accompanied by a warm cup of hot chocolate? There is no better afternoon plan!

Ice rinks
Sport and fun in one sentence? It is possible when we talk about skating on ice rinks. An activity that, although it can be enjoyed throughout the year, is more popular at this time of year. And Madrid has placed several ice rinks around the city so that everyone can experience this activity.

In Plaza España
we’ll find the first one, a small rink that will be located right next to a Christmas market. In Plaza de Colón we’ll find another one and by Matadero cultural center’s foot there is also a gigantic rink of 600 m2. Which one will you go to?

Christmas plans a little further away from the center of Madrid
We could not miss the opportunity to recommend these two Christmas activities.

Magical Christmas and Christmas Park of Torrejón de Ardoz
If you love Christmas, Christmas lights and decorations, snow and Santa Claus, you can not miss the Magical Christmas of Torrejón de Ardoz! The fairgrounds of the town becomes, from November 30 to January 7, a real village taken from the North Pole. You will find Ferris wheels, an ice rink, shows, statues and monuments, a Christmas market and a floating lantern festival.

A festival that has been declared a Festival of Tourist Interest for its quality, originality and cultural importance, a must-visit for anyone who loves the holidays and the Christmas atmosphere!

Magic Forest of Madrid
There are few things more Christmas-like than lights. Therefore, we want to recommend the botanical garden of San Martin de Valdeiglesias, a magical place to visit both day and night. A tour through a garden full of animal figures, goblins, dragons and dinosaurs that will enrapture young and old. Our tip: visit the garden in the evening, when the statues are lit up with hundreds of lights and the whole tour takes on a magical aura!
