How to get to Madrid Zoo, what options do we have and which is the most recommendable? The animal park is located in the western part of the city, in the Casa de Campo area (it is next to the Parque de Atracciones de Madrid). We have these options for how to get to Zoo Aquarium Madrid, of which we recommend public transport for its ease, flexibility and so you don't have to worry about your vehicle afterwards, as well as being a more environmentally sustainable option:

  • By car. The quickest way to get to the park is to take the M-30 and then the road to Extremadura (A-5/N-V), from where you take exit 5A and follow the signs to the zoo (the Zoo Madrid direction is very well signposted). Once there, what options do we have for parking at Zoo Madrid? The Zoo Madrid car park is free and municipal and is not managed by the park.
  • By underground. The underground train is a good option if you don't want to worry about leaving your car at the Zoo Madrid car park. It leaves you just 900 metres from the entrance and can be reached on the following lines: Line 10 and Line 5. Consult the underground map and timetables to plan your departure time and return to the hotel.
  • By bus. Another option for getting to Madrid Zoo is to take the EMT bus line 33, a regular line that runs daily. This public transport alternative stops at the entrance to the site and connects with the Príncipe Río interchange and the Casa de Campo metro station.

A day at the park can be very intense, so at some point we will have to stop for lunch at Zoo Madrid. There are different options, from sitting down and eating a plate to sandwiches and hamburgers, to treat yourself. What do you prefer to eat at Zoo Madrid?

There are several Zoo Aquarium restaurants: two express restaurants for a quick bite to eat, the Cafeteria Principal and the Hamburguesería Virunga for eating outside; the Aquarium and Australia kiosk-cafeterias for a snack or refreshment, or for when we are looking for something cool on hot days, such as an ice cream. As for the restaurants at the Madrid Zoo, we have an option to sit down and order à la carte: the Bagaray Restaurant, where you can enjoy its dishes in a relaxed atmosphere. It has rice dishes, meat dishes, salads, pastas, fish, hamburgers... as well as a children's menu and vegan, gluten-free and allergen-free options, for everyone!

On the other hand, apart from the Zoo Madrid restaurants, the site also offers visitors some picnic areas to eat Zoo Madrid whatever you have brought from home, a more economical option to enjoy your recipes without having to leave the park.

The first thing we recommend when you go to the park is to get the Zoo Madrid map, which you will be given at the ticket offices at the entrance (you can also consult the Madrid Zoo map online). With the Zoo Aquarium Madrid map you can easily find your way around the different ecosystems of the park, as well as consult useful information during your visit, such as where each animal is, where there are exhibitions, places to take photos with animals, and easily locate restaurants, shops and services (such as smoking areas or picnic areas).
