Get on a segway and enjoy with us the biggest urban park in Europe.
Casa de Campo (House of the fields), before the royal hunting ground, became a public park in the early 1930s. It is located on the west side of the city, and on its more than 1700 hectares today is a home to a remodeled artificial lake, a cable car (the Teleférico), a theme park, and a zoo. Combined with its many trees, paths, outdoor sports areas, and unforgettable views, create today a unique space in Europe’s green areas. The history of Casa de Campo begins when Felipe II decides to move the Court to Madrid and use this area as his hunting grounds. Later a manor house is built there and farms and fields from the surrounding areas are added, making the park as big as it is today. After the proclamation of the Second Republic, the State donates Casa de Campo to the people of Madrid, and today it is the biggest public park in the city. During the Spanish Civil War, many battles were fought there, and we can still see the damages of the bombings in some places, or we can find old military buildings and bunkers around the area. This all makes discovering the big park on a Segway a very interesting, special, and easy experience.
After your arrival to the meeting point one of our guides will make sure you learn how to use the Segway correctly, and guide you through a short safety briefing and practical training. Once you feel comfortable, we will start the tour to see the Royal Theater of Madrid at the Opera Square, the Royal Palace and the Cathedral. Afterwards we will ride down through Athens Park to the river Manzanares. We will cross the river at the King’s Bridge and have a chance to visit a great view spot in the garden of Huerta de la Partida. We will then go deeper into Casa de Campo, where we will visit the artificial lake, ride around the calm green areas, get to view panoramic views next to the cable car, where you can admire the magnitude of the Spanish capital, and have a chance to see a bunker, remaining here from the Spanish Civil war time. We will also visit more of the Riverside park going along it’s bike lane, passing interesting old and new bridges, all the way down to the famous Matadero, the old slaughterhouse now turned a cultural center.
Leave us your number. We will call you within 30 minutes (in work time) and help you make a choice.
