Climate in Madrid, Spain

The best time to come to Madrid is at the beginning of the summer, from May to the start of July, when most days are clear and sunny, but when the heat isn't quite as fierce as later in the season. This is also the time when a great deal of the city's outdoor festivals like San Isidro and Feria Taurina take place. During heat-waves temperatures soar as high as 40°C in July and August, and rain is almost unheard of. But a little earlier in the season you can enjoy being outside without feeling like you have escape the sun the whole time. Autumn arrives by late-September when it becomes a bit wetter again and temperatures start to sink back towards the low 20s. September and October is also a very comfortable time to be outdoors in the city. You might escape the tourist crowds if you’re lucky!

Madrid has a Mediterranean climate but being in the middle of the Iberian Peninsula and a long way from ocean or sea makes the weather different from coastal cities like Valencia. Summers in Madrid are just as warm, if not hotter, but winters are normally cooler. From December to February temperatures will only get up to about 10° and there are around 10 rainy days a month in this season. Temperatures climb quickly through spring - a typical day in April will get highs of 17 degrees Celsius, but by June temperatures are pushing 30 degrees Celsius.

Skip the Line Prado Museum Private Tour

My husband, myself and our niece had just arrived in the morning in Madrid. After flying all night from the US. When it was time for our tour we made to the museum and found Iker right away. Immediately we were met with excitement and enthusiasm from Iker. He noticed we were jet lagging hard, and offered us some time to have a coffee at the museum cafe. We chatted a bit, got to know each other and our life stories. Then we began our tour. Iker was very informative and passionate about the history and the story behind each painting of Velasquez and Goya. The details of each painting are amazing in their own right but Iker just enhanced everything for us. Made us feel and understand how the painters felt during that time. I cannot recommend Iker highly enough. One of the greatest tour guides we have ever had. He shared with us some must see places and restaurants to visit in Madrid. He helped make our few days in Madrid that much more fun.

Madrid by Bike: The Local Way

When a guide fell sick Rosen took his tour and guided us through Madrid by bike. He showed a lot of flexibility on the timing by starting the tour early. The tour along the river brought us to parks and many bridges as well as the Matadero cultural center. We enjoyed ourselves a lot since Rosen had lots of interesting things to tell us about this area. We ended the tour in an old traditional bar with a glass of delicious cider before we parted ways. We had a really nice and interesting afternoon with Rosen!
