Santiago Bernabéu Stadium, one of the top destinations in the city
Real Madrid’s Home Ground
In 1947, the city celebrated the inauguration of their premier football team’s new home. It’s original name was Estadio Chamartén. However, this changed to Santiago Bernabéu Stadium eight years later in honour of the club’s president. Today it can seat 80.400 people, and sometimes holds concerts too.
A Tour Of The Stadium
Many people visit Madrid for the sole purpose of seeing the stadium. It has tours which offer a glimpse in to the magnificent grounds that have held so many important matches. It’s a great opportunity to walk around the pitch, see the (visiting team’s) dressing rooms, go through the player’s tunnel and look at the trophy room.
A Day Out For Everyone
Santiago Bernabéu Stadium is in the centre of Madrid’s business district, and is easily accessible with its own metro stop. It’s a great spot to visit whether you’re an avid football fan or not, and children will enjoy it too. Watching a live match in such an iconic setting is a thrilling experience!
