Santiago Bernabeu Stadium
Founded in 1902, the club's teams had to play in a variety of venues throughout the city until this stadium, Estadio Santiago Bernabeu, was built in 1947. It holds a capacity crowd of 75,342 and has become world famous due to Real's success in international competitions over the years. It is named after the chairman of the Board of Directors, Santiago Bernabeu, who had the vision to borrow the money, buy this plot of land, and start building. At that time, it was the most modern stadium in the country and it has since undergone various expansion and improvement projects. The club's museum includes the trophy room.
the experience was great the atmosphere was great i want to the the super classico madrid vs barca this season!
best stadium and best team in the world in my opinion followed by camp nou of barca
Home of the best soccer team in the world. Seeing Beckham in person has been a dream come true. Go there with family, friends, etc. A very secure place, you'll enjoy the tour, and best the real madrid if it is game day. I highly recommend it!
A great stadium in a friendly capital, which is why we cose it for dad's 80th birthday treat. The stadium is impressive, but I don't think any more than others in Europe, including the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff.
Too many steps for the 80 year old, but it took a freiendly local to sort out a trip in the lift - albeit the stadium staff were frienly enough. Being 'visitors' we were high up with the gods, close enough to make-out the Becks haircut and the Zidane swerve. Nobody, including the goalie, saw the two Roberto Carlos blasts! I think I saw Ronaldo break sweat, but I am not sure.
Dad didn't stand up with the rest when the four goals went in, but there was a grin and smile - after all not everybody gets a trip like this, let alone at 80.
Becks did his best to liven up the crowd, and the cheers at the end were testiment to an hour and a half of effort and skill. It is surprising that the loudest noise of the night was the whistling off of an opposition player for demonstrating his 'Henry Cooper skills'.
All in all a night to remember, and the stadium emptied quickly to enable some flash photography as momentos.
Oh yes, it seems that Spanish refs are no better than the ones in the premiership - or at least that lot behind the goal seemed to think so. Ah well, some people are never happy!
It was cool to be there! Me and my family had fun but the workers there werent that nice! There was a woman, she was a guard and she was very unfriendly like the guy in the cafeteria, he just kept looking at his watch because it was almost tme to leave!!! We couldnt eay peacefully!!! But anyway if you go there just dont talk to the people there hahahahaha
If you are a footbal fan and you lile the exclusive restaurants, you should know Zen MArket Restaurant, located in the boxes of the Stadium.
If you decide to do that, the best option is getting a plan with planinthecity , because they offer you a menú with fixed price including a bottle of red wine.
A good plan to do with your wife or your friends.Look fot it in the website.
This was a fantastic stop in Madrid. My fiancee is into soccer (football) more than I am but I still enjoyed the experience. The stadium was ernormous - comparable to a ProNFL stadium in the states. The musuem was modern and stimulating with sound, video and tons of memorabilia. The curator has done some really unique things with trophies, cleats and much more. It cost about 15 Euro to do the self-guided tour, which still took us about 2 hours on our own. Definitely a worthwhile experience, if you're interested in football!
For any football fan like myself the name of the Santiago Bernabeu stadium sets bells ringing. It has hosted great clubs like Manchester United, AC Milan, Bayern Munich and other european greats. The Stadium tour lets you wander around the ground into the away dressing room and even sit where many a manager has sat and cried as they watched their team dismantled by the great Real Madrid I am of course talking about the away bench. The Trophy room holds many an interesting trophy including nine champions league replica and other objects. The club shop after the tour is a minefield for football fans I spent way too long and way too much money in it.
Madrid hosted an exhibition on the Philippine Islands in 1887, and the same architect who created the nearby Palacio de
Velázquez was hired to design this greenhouse to hold all the flowers brought over from the islands. It's an ...
