Experience driving a Segway through one of Europe´s largest urban parks with an expert guide.
What to Expect
Casa de Campo is the largest urban park in Europe with more than 1750 hectares. Casa de Campo means “country house” and gets its name because it was once a royal hunting ground. A public park since 1931, it houses an amusement park, the zoo, an artificial lake and a cable car just to name a few of the things located in the park.
Our journey begins in the Royal Palace, once home to the Spanish kings and their court. Passing by the gardens of Sabatini, where you have a beautiful view of the Royal Palace and going through Cuesta de San Vicente, you will reach the San Vicente Gate, one of the remaining gates from 18th century city wall.
After seeing the river and crossing the Bridge of the King, you will reach Casa de Campo. For about an hour, you get to see what the park has to offer. After passing by Sabatini’s aqueduct, tour around the lake and enjoy its nice atmosphere and beautiful view. Afterwards, head towards the little hill from where you can enjoy the view and see the skyline of the city. Finish in Huerta de la Partida, a restored XVI century vegetable garden built to produce food for the disappeared Casa de Campo palace.
