Weather Averages for Madrid in April
Averages for Madrid in April
It is fairly quiet in Madrid during April with a minimum of festivals. For some who would like to avoid crowds this is the best time to visit and explore the city. The weather is also perfect during this time for strolling with an average daily temperature of 110 C, meaning not uncomfortably chilly. Besides, the sun will be out for an average of 7 hours making the days warm enough.
Buen Retiro Park is one of the largest and most popular parks in Madrid. This park is full of beautiful sculpture, landscaping and monuments. The Royal Botanic Garden is awesome with its collection of 90,000 plants and flowers and 1,500 trees in a 8 hectare area. Last but not the least is the Campo del Moro which follows the layout of 19th Century English gardens, thus, explaining the English romanticism impression of the garden.
Madrid is also famous for its active nightlife and indeed it has numerous pubs and discos that are open until the wee hours of the morning. Some of the liveliest after dinner parties are in Olé Lola, Marula Café, and Museo Chicote. A variety of entertainment is available from flamenco bars, live bands to dj music. When you’re done partying, go for a tapa before going back to the hotel for a much needed shuteye. Coco Loco Hostel would be the perfect place for accommodations because of its proximity to clubs. It is also very affordable.
Bring your dancing shoes in April because for this month Madrid has two major dancing festivals: Klubber’s Day and Madrid en Danza. Klubber’s Day is a two day event held at the Madrid Arena where local and international dance steps mingle. Dancers from all over the world participate in the Madrid en Danza together with local dancers to showcase their talents in contemporary dance. You just might want to participate in some workshops and live exhibitions.
