This is nice place for a stroll along the river. There's often not much water in the river, especially in the summer, but the landscaped areas around the river are great, good for cycling or jogging too. Lots of cafes and play areas with swings...More

Don’t doubt it. It’s absolutely worth it. A walk from Plaza de España to Principe Pio, and to step in to the riversides is really nice. You can have a drink in some of the many terraces you find along the river, which ultimately has...More

We visited on our first full day in Madrid. The kids loved the water features and we hired a sunbed next to the water jets that the kids could run in to cool down. There was plenty of cyclists and joggers too so it has...More

We biked down one side of the river and back up the other. The infrastructure is perfect for biking and walking and they have done a great job with the gardens and greenery. We passed lots of children’s playgrounds too. We wish we stayed closer...More

Assuming you will be staying around downtown, the best option is metro Piramides (Line 5). Go out of the metro station, cross the street and you will be at Madrid Río. Hope you have a great time in beautiful Madrid!
