Nothing opens children’s minds like new experiences, and Madrid is perfect for that. The capital of Spain offers a combination of museums, historical monuments, amusement parks, shows, green areas, and many other outstanding activities your children will not forget.

Planning your trip to Madrid with kids

Visiting Madrid with kids is a wonderful and rewarding experience, but it can be overwhelming without proper planning.

When I travel with my daughter, I try to be always ready for the unexpected. Good planning helps you to react better and faster against any setback and do not ruin your family holidays. I always think, what could go wrong?

With some previous research, your family trip to Spain will be relaxing, enjoyable, and filled with fantastic new family experiences.

Traveling with children always requires extra time, no matter the destination. Therefore, it is worth taking some time before the trip to scout out hotels, restaurants, and attractions.

Try to keep your schedule loose and leave enough room for adjustment, a flexible schedule will generate less stress for your children.

The key to a successful family trip to Madrid is finding plenty of fun activities to keep your children happy. Keep the planning relaxed, do not overload it with sightseeing activities, and save enough time for breaks, playgrounds, pools, and to try Spanish candies.

It obviously depends on how old your kids are, but it is usually helpful to involve them in the planning. Let them choose between several activities and this way they will be more excited about the trip.

Likewise, you can give them their own suitcase and empower them to choose the clothes and goodies they want to bring on your family vacation.

Traveling to Madrid with babies, toddlers, or teenagers

Children have different needs depending on their age.

Babies

Traveling to Madrid with babies can be the easiest and the most difficult.

At this age, you can take them anywhere and keep them happy as long as you create a comfortable environment for them and keep them on their routine.

On the other hand, special care is required as they are more vulnerable and dependent.

Traveling to Madrid with babies can be the easiest and the most difficult

Toddlers

Toddlers are a little bit more autonomous and they usually have fun with all the new experiences.

But it is also true that when building your itinerary, you will have to leave enough downtime to let them refuel their energy, hit a playground, or eat ice cream.

A critical decision when traveling to Madrid with kids is if you are carrying a stroller.

I usually do, as strollers are extremely convenient for longer distances and for a mid-day nap.

Besides, the storage basket underneath is really handy for carrying snacks, water, sweaters, and many other articles you could need along the day.   

I use the Bugaboo Ant as it is compact, lightweight, and can be taken right up to the gate of the plane. Similar lightweight or umbrella-type strollers should be excellent choices too.

Teenagers

Visiting Madrid with teenagers should be quite fun.

They will probably need some space so it could be convenient to book a hotel room just for them or rent an apartment where they can have their own room.

Visiting Madrid with teenagers should be quite fun

A mix of activities and sightseeing will be necessary so they do not get bored as well as some internet and social media time.

They should be also involved in the planning of the trip and take some decisions like the restaurants, shows, or activities.

Booking the flights to Madrid

The cost of the flight will probably be one of the highest expenses on your trip to Madrid, especially if you are traveling with family.

When traveling to Madrid with kids, it is important not to focus just on cost but also on convenience.

When traveling with my daughter I would most times choose a direct flight

For instance, when traveling with my daughter I would most times choose a direct flight although it is more expensive. The more connections you have, the more delays and travel hassles you are likely to encounter.

Although it might be tempting to make use of a low-cost airline, take into account that they often fly into remote airports, which could mean more travel and additional transport expenses.

Besides, they usually have fine-print additional charges for baggage, choosing seats, meals, … which will make the final price difference minimal.

The time of the flights is important too. If you get a night flight to a distant destination, your child could spend the whole journey sleeping.

Seat kids away from the aisle as the food and beverage cart can be dangerous for them.

If your child chooses the journey to throw a tantrum try to keep calm

If your child chooses the journey to throw a tantrum try to keep calm. A few passengers will probably be bothered but most will empathize with you as they are parents and know perfectly how it feels. Some of them will even try to help you entertain your baby.

This is why you do not need any cheap flight but a good flight at the cheapest price. If you can get the very same flight at a lower price, savings can multiply by 3 or 4.

Do not overpay for your plane tickets if you are traveling to Madrid with kids with my step-by-step guide to finding cheap flights to Madrid.

Best accommodation in Madrid with kids

The accommodation offer in Madrid is wide, diverse, and for all budgets. That’s why it can make it tricky you find the right place that fits your style, interests, and budget.

In my opinion, having visited many cities around the world, accommodation in Madrid is quite affordable and has very good quality. You will find big price differences though, depending on the season.

Castellana, Princesa, Chamberi, and Argüelles are excellent neighborhoods when traveling to Madrid with kids. You will not be in the historic center but the excellent public transport will be your ally to visit the best attractions in Madrid.

The main discussion when visiting Spain with kids is usually choosing between hotel and apartment.

There is not a right answer, as it depends on each person. In my case, I would go for an apartment when traveling to Madrid with family.

They are as clean as hotels, and they usually are cheaper, more spacious, and have a kitchen, which gives you more flexibility for meals and allows you to cut down on the costs of dining out.

Deep winter is cold but not extreme. Rainy days are not usual and the city center rarely receives snow. As thermometers don’t usually go down from 0 ºC / 32 ºF, you should be fine with just a coat.
