Welcome to Madrid
December is here and with it comes all kinds of magical events and activities that will provide a much-needed dose of festive cheer. Matadero Madrid is once again offering a rich and diverse Christmas programme, titled Madrid, Navidad de encuentro. Among other things it features a wonderful skating rink which will be open from 5 December to 10 January (closed 24, 25 and 31 Dec and 1 January).
The 600m2 rink will be open during the entire Christmas period giving adults and kids lots of opportunities to show off their best moves. Maximum capacity is set at 75 people.
The ice rink is now open, with strict social distancing and safety measures in operation to protect both visitors and staff.
Matadero have increased the number of staff members to ensure one-way flows are respected and staff members are following a robust cleaning regime. This year there are two areas for visitors to put on and take off their skates to guarantee social distancing and all the seats in these areas are numbered. Surfaces are disinfected after each turn and a number of hand gel dispensers have been installed on the premises. Masks must be worn at all times.
