Like the Christmas illumination, the Christmas market of the Plaza Mayor or the Navibús, the Christmas Train has become a part of Christmas in Madrid. It is one of the most classic and traditional events. Especially for families & the little ones. The train is a historical one made up of four wooden cars from the 1920s.
To make the experience even more sweeter, there will be theatrical shows, humor, games and Christmas carols, for the enjoyment of travelers and especially the kids. In addition, you can visit the Railway Museum of Madrid, as an invitation will be delivered to travelers (valid until January 31, 2018). On January 5, the Three Wise Men will travel on the Royal SSMM train, being able to deliver their letters personally.
These trains are organized by Renfe. This will be an amazing experience to enjoy with your friends & family. Also, you will see a different side of Christmas celebrations in this city.
