Plans to enjoy Madrid with your family during Christmas

Like every year in December, the agenda of activities in Madrid is filled with Christmas events such as street markets, miniature nativity scenes, traditional gastronomy …

From URSO Hotel & Spa, we want to propose several activities to enjoy as a family during your visit to the capital on Christmas.

Our first proposal is a walk through the well-known Plaza Mayor and its Christmas market, the most famous in the city, where you can buy handmade figures for the nativity scene, home decorations and even Christmas trees.

Another activity of great interest are the exhibitions of small nativity scenes organized by the City of Madrid every year in the Cibeles Center, Casa de la Villa or San Isidro Museum, where you can admire compositions and models that recall the history of the Christian Christmas.

If you like the idea of spending a day of Christmas shopping, the downtown area -Sol, Gran Vía, Plaza Mayor and Callao- has a wide variety of stores, where you will find from the best-known brands to small boutiques of new designers. For the youngest ones, the downtown area hosts in the afternoon the visit of royal pages and Santa Claus, who collect the requests of the children organizing some activities and games.

The ice rinks are another fun alternative to enjoy an afternoon with friends or family. Accessible from December, you will find them in Plaza de Colón or Plaza de Soledad Torres Acosta, and everybody is welcome!

Furthermore, in Plaza de Colón there is a Christmas bus, which makes a closed circuit through the main streets of Madrid’s downtown, and allows you to enjoy the Christmas lights.
