If you’re looking for the best panoramic views of Madrid, look no further!

Hop On the Teleférico for the Best Views of Madrid

Hop on the Teleférico de Madrid or more simply put, the cable car in Madrid that transports you from Parque del Oeste over the Manzanares River into Casa de Campo Park. This short ten minute ride offers spectacular bird’s eye views of Madrid and Casa de Campo, one of the city’s largest parks. The ride costs 4 euros for a one-way ticket and 5.8 euros for a round trip. To make it even cheaper, look for coupons in booklets handed out at hotels/hostels.

Crossing the Manzanares River offers impressive views of the Royal Palace and Almudena Cathedral sitting atop the hill (white buildings in the picture below).

Moving farther over Casa de Campo gives you an idea just how massive the park really is – about five times the size of Central Park in New York! There are trees covering the ground for as far as you can see.

The ride ends at a building with a bar and restaurant, we grabbed some ice cream, sat, and enjoyed the lovely views of Madrid before hopping back on the Teleférico and heading toward the city again. The Teleférico is a fun, affordable way to get stunning views of Madrid and explore part of the city’s largest park.
