Welcome to Madrid
As a result of engineering work in Chamartín station, the services for mid-distance trains to and from the north of Spain will be disrupted. From 1 June, the following trains will depart from and arrive at Princípe Pío instead of Chamartín:
Madrid has a broad railway structure that allows access to the capital city from all points in Spain, and offers the possibility of comfortably traveling through the country. The two main stations, Atocha and Chamartín, receive medium- and long-distance trains, high-velocity trains and local trains. In addition, international trains travel to and from France and Portugal through Chamartín.
The medium-distance lines allow travellers to access the capital city from any point in Spain. Chamartín Station (Agustín de Foxa, no address number) and Atocha Station (Plaza del Emperador Carlos V, no address number) have daily departures and arrivals to and from the most important cities.
Trains to the north of Spain travelling throughout the night depart from Chamartín. The Trenhotel is a high-end overnight service where the traveller has his or her own room, including a bed. People can travel through the Trenhotel to Galicia and international destinations. Two long-distance lines connect Madrid with Lisbon and Paris. In both cases, there is Trenhotel service with departure from Chamartín Station.
The station has a wide range of commercial and catering services, as well as a bowling alley, Bowling Chamartin, and a large leisure centre on its upper floor, MEEU, which is devoted to a variety of leisure and gastronomy facilities, including a roller skating rink.
However, Chamartín station is an important interchange as it not only offers railway services, but also metro and bus services.
