1. ‘WAH’ Dinner Show

The international ‘WAH’ show, which is every bit as good as a show in Las Vegas or Broadway, has arrived in Madrid for the first time (and is planning to stay until banned) to offer us a 5-hour jaw-dropping experience thanks to its spectacular proposal that combines theatre, music and gastronomy. Three perfect ingredients for enjoying different and original activities in Madrid.

2. Discover the ghost metro station

It may be an amusing activity to do in Madrid for many, but for others, it’s a plan only for really brave tourists…

Travelling back in time is possible, and you can do so in Madrid. The Chamberí metro station was once part of a line opened in 1919, but due to technical reasons, it had to be closed down in the 1960s, thus becoming a ghost station.

It has now been restored, so you can see “platform zero”, as it was back when it was opened. It even preserves some of the original ads built into the tile walls. 

Venue: Plaza de Chamberí, s/n

Opening hours: Friday from 4 pm to 8 pm, Saturday from 10 am to 2 pm and from 4 pm to 8 pm and Sunday from 10 am to 2 pm.

Price:  Free admission with prior reservation at


3. The 2 Ds: declutter and divide up your pantry

Sport is always a very good plan. No matter where or what time of year, given that you will be around Madrid, we recommend you visit Sharma Climbing, the largest climbing wall facility in Spain. 

It has about 4,000 sq. metres of climbing walls, where fun and adrenalin are guaranteed, for young and old alike, as they offer climbing lessons to persons over 4 years. 

And if the streets of Madrid, with their steep slopes and dips are not enough for you, the 19-m high wall with its almost 160 routes and 150 blocks is one of the many fantastic plans the city has to offer.

Venue: Julián Camarillo, 55

Opening hours: Monday to Friday - from 8:00 to 23:00. Saturdays and Sundays - 9:00 to 22:00.

Price: From €13

4. Free exhibitions at Casa Encendida


Among the many things to do in Madrid, letting your imagination run wild with art is one of the best plans. The city has countless cultural and art centres and many museums and exhibition halls, but one of the most interesting and original is La Casa Encendida. 

Its original name, which has nothing to do with fires, pays tribute to the book of the same name by the poet from Granada Luis Rosales. An avant-garde, modern centre with four exhibition floors featuring works by emerging artists of all genres. 

And not only that; with luck, you can go to a concert, see a play or even go to a film festival. The perfect plan to do alone or with your family. 

Venue: Ronda de Valencia 2

Opening hours:  Tuesday to Saturday from 10 am to 9 pm and Sunday from 10 am to 4 pm.

Price: Consult according to activity
