Madrid, Spain

When is the best time to visit the lovely city of Madrid? The best time to visit Madrid is in the fall season (from September to November) or spring season (from March to May), when balmy temperature blows through the city, making it come alive. But if you don’t mind cold weather and a rather listless Madrid, visit in the winter when hotels decrease their rates. Peak tourist season is during the summer season despite nearly unbearable heat but many Madrileños close up shop this time of the year and take vacations themselves.

Mild temperatures that range from the high 50s to the upper 70s in September and the low 40s and upper 50s in November make touring around Madrid’s El Rasro market and Retiro Park immensely enjoyable.

A key event you can enjoy during this time of the year is their Autumn Festival held in October.
