It’s true there’s no beach here. And while we know Madrid isn’t the world’s no. 1 summer destination, with its high temperatures and scarce swimming pools, one thing is certain: you’ll never get bored. There’s always something new to discover, and there are those who take advantage of the summer months to explore the city in a more relaxed way, with no crowds, long lines, or traffic jams. Suddenly, you fall in love with the city all over again, despite the 97° heat. We at UNOde50 want to show you that the city is also for summertime. Don’t believe us? Check out all it has to offer.

 

Jewels of Madrid to enjoy in the summertime

 

OUTDOOR CONCERTS

Music is an essential part of summertime in Madrid. At night, the city fills with outdoor concerts to fight the high heat. Musicians of all kinds gather at a unique venue, the Alfonso XIII Royal Botanical Gardens, for Noches del Botánico. Flamenco, reggae, pop, rock… there’s something for every musical taste.

SUMMER CINEMA

Setting aside the typical outdoor summer cinemas, another interesting option for cinephiles is the drive-in, a novel plan for hot summer nights in the city. Madrid’s drive-in, Autocine Madrid Race, spans 27,000 m2 with capacity for 300 cars. It has a giant 250 m2 screen with digital projection. The venue also features a new hammock area during the summer months and dining options.

MUSEUMS

Spending the summer browsing the city’s best museums is an appealing plan. You avoid the heat, the crowds, and the endless lines. You can also check out some museums that are less well-known but equally as interesting as the Prado and the Reina Sofia, such as the Garment Museum, the Museum of Science and Technology, and the Decorative Arts Museum.

SHOPPING

Another perfect plan for summer is a shopping spree. Skip the lines and find great discounts at many stores. One shopping hotspot is Calle Serrano, also known as the Golden Mile, where shops of all kinds are interspersed with restaurants and cafés. One mandatory stop on Calle Serrano is UNOde50. Why not?!
