There are so many things to do in Madrid at every time of the year that it is difficult to compile everything in a single space. But if you are looking for plans for the month of September, here are the activities you cannot miss.
Madrid does not always have to be seen from a heritage point of view, there are other things to do that are just as interesting and much more fun. Take note of these alternatives!
If you have been out of Madrid during the summer or you have not dared because of the heat or some other reason, in September you have no excuse to make that visit to the Parque de Atracciones Madrid that you had pending.
The most fun and refreshing day, with a huge range of themed rides for all ages, can be enjoyed without leaving Madrid. You can get here by car, metro or bus because you do not have to go far to discover the most magical place.
The park is divided into four themed areas that have rides for all tastes: roller coasters, free falls, carousels, rides ... up to more than thirty options with different intensities, suitable for all ages. You cannot miss Abismo, La Jungla, Aserradero, La Lanzadera, Los Fiordos, Los Rápidos, the Virtual Simulator, Top Spin, Tornado and, in short, any of its incredible proposals to spend an amazing day.
But, in addition, to make the most of the month of September, you can enjoy all the musical and non-musical shows that we have prepared for young and old. For example?
And to all this you have to add the possibility of eating in any of its themed restaurants, where they serve menus for all tastes: sandwiches, a la carte menus, pizza, fast food...
There are few things as complete and fun to do in Madrid in September as enjoying Parque de Atracciones. You can make the most of the whole day to not miss any ride and any show and, if you are also from outside, you have the option to book a hotel with the park entrance, so you can rest after a day of strong emotions. Are you still thinking about it?
Open House Madrid is the international architecture festival organized in the capital once a year. It is an initiative that offers guided tours of more than a hundred buildings and architecture studios that are usually closed to the public.
This year 2021 is held from September 24 to September 26 and consists, basically, of open days in which to discover Madrid's architecture through its buildings.
These are free visits, which can be an incentive to enjoy this activity, which you can find out about on their website to plan in advance those places you are interested in knowing.
The Reina Sofia Museum, La Casa Encendida, White Lab, the Palacio de Liria... These are just some examples of all the buildings that open their doors to visitors at the end of September.
There are places in Madrid that, for their beauty or cultural value, are a must-see at any time. But they also keep secrets that are a gift for the senses. Here are very original places to visit in September in Madrid and enjoy a perfect excursion.
September is a great month to start making outdoor plans. It is not so hot anymore and you still feel like going on a getaway. But, if you do not want to leave Madrid for that, there is an incredible place to enjoy the best possible weekend.
It is located very close to the town of San Agustín de Guadalix and offers one of the most spectacular landscapes that can be found in the Sierra Norte. We are talking about the route of the Cascadas del Hervidero.
It is an ideal hiking plan for the beginning of autumn and the end of summer. And it is a fairly simple path, so it can be done with kids.
The route begins in a recreational area that is very close to the industrial estate El Raso, north of San Agustín de Guadalix (exit 36 of the A-1, Burgos bound). From that point you can follow the banks of the Guadalix River until you enter a canyon formed by the river to reach a double waterfall that will leave you stunned. This place is known as the Charco del Hervidero and is well worth visiting.
Another of the best plans that can be done in September in Madrid is to visit some of the charming villages that exist in the province. One of those privileged enclaves where you can enjoy a very original visit is Manzanares El Real, a town located in La Pedriza, at the foot of the Sierra de Guadarrama, where you can see its impressive castle.
It can be one of the most entertaining excursions to do with the family in September. You can even go hiking in the area and visit the town on the same day.
It is essential to visit the Mendoza Castle, the best preserved of all the Autonomous Community of Madrid. It is a fortification of the fifteenth century that mixes medieval and Renaissance features and demonstrates the power that the Mendoza family had in the town at that time, as they had strong ties with the Reyes Católicos.
It can be visited in its entirety and has gardens that are a delight, where you can relax and enjoy the views.
If you choose the right day, you can also attend the theatrical performances, children's workshops and other alternative activities that are made to publicize the castle.
Madrid is wonderful to visit at any time of the year, but September has that special smell of coming home, and there is no shortage of special and fun plans to enjoy any weekend and make a getaway.
