Best thing we did in Madrid, you pay 5 or 6 euros dependent on age and the views are brilliant. If your feet are tired this is brilliant and you can see so much of Madrid. If you feel energetic you can hop off and do a walk and then return later. We stayed on and it was great value for money.

Tip: Book your ticket before and you can go to the right hand lane and get to the front quicker, we didnt and only took 5-10 minutes to get in. #1 thing we did.

Longest teleferico we've seen so far. Great views. Not much to do on the el campo side other than picnic and playground. Bring a lunch and enjoy the views before heading back! It would be great if they rented bikes on the el campo side as it would give people something fun to do there. Nothing fancy, but worth the roundtrip. teens really enjoyed it.

Loved it. Great fun, great views, great value (7€return). To be clear though, the cable cars dont take you through or into the city, but rather ou of the city into a sort of national park. Also a cafe or similar is badly needed at the other (think there might have been previously, but definitely closed when I visited).

The teleférico provides beautiful 360 degree views from 4 person cable cars that traverse Madrid from the Rosales Station near the Templo de Debod to the Casa de Campo. We bought round trip tickets because we didn’t have another way to get back. The park, Casa de Campo, is above the city with wonderful views, and areas to picnic, hike, or bicycle. The eating area at the top was closed and we did not explore other options. This is a good way to see more than the old part of Madrid from above.

This is a fun way to see Madrid from above. It is especially great if you have children, as there is a fun park at the top to play in before making the return trip down.

We were pleased we used the cable car for a different perspective of Madrid. Opens at 12 midday and what seemed like a long queue went down very quickly. Got off at the park. The only thing available to do there was walking. The cafe was closed. There are toilet facilities at either end of the cable car.

The cafe is currently closed for refurbishment meaning there is no cafe anywhere near the cable car so there is no where to get refreshments if you are meeting up with friends to travel together. It took over 45 minutes of queuing before I got onto the cable car to go back to the city from the park. This was partly due to the reduced number of cars in operation as it was nearing the end of the day and solo travelers being put in a car on their own (as I was). When the queue is so long it leaves the building I would have expected to share a car with someone else. A lovely scenic view from the cable car though.

We flew into Madrid early and didn’t want to go to sleep so we walked in a daze over to the park and took the Teleferico. It’s nothing fancy but the views are great. You go right over parts of the city then the Campo is below. It’s really pretty. Perfect for tired don’t-want-to-think times. After we walked in the gardens where it starts. Peaceful city oasis.

Worth trying it out for an overview of Madrid. Not many sights to see though as just passing over houses and railway lines. You can get out at the other end and have a walk round. Nice little gift shop too.

We got a one way ticket, loved crossing above Madrid in the cable car. The queue for the car is very slow and people who booked on line join the queue at the front. We tried to book on line whilst in Madrid and weren't able to do so, book online if you can is my advice. We only stayed at the top for a short time and then walked back down through the park, really pleasant walk. Very reasonably priced.
