History and description

In 1924, Real Madrid first played at Campo de O?Donnell, and then moved to the larger Campo de Chamartín in order to accommodate their growing fan base. In 1943, Santiago Bernabéu, club-president of Madrid, decided that a new and modern 100,000-stadium was needed for the city. Chamartin had already become too small again.

This new stadium was built at the same site of Campo de Chamartín. Construction began in 1945 and on December 14th, 1947, Estadio Santiago Bernabéu officially opened with a match against Portuguese champions OS Belenenses (3-1).

The stadium was initially still called Nuevo Estadio Chamartin, but received the name of the club-president eight years later.

At the time, Santiago Bernabéu Stadium only had two uncovered tiers that could only hold around 75,000 spectators. Capacity was increased to 125,000 in 1954 when one of the long sides got expanded with a third tier.

When the Euro 1964 Championships were underway, the Bernabéu played host to one of the semi-finals and the final between Spain and the Soviet Union.

In the 1970s, the stadium was already starting to age and club officials started making plans to build a new stadium in the north of the city.

However, with the perspective of the 1982 World Cup, it was decided to renovate the Bernabéu, which included the construction of a roof over the three two-tiered stands and the installation of seats in half of the stadium. As a result, capacity was reduced to 90,800 places.

During the 1982 World Cup, the Santiago Bernabéu Stadium hosted three matches in the second group stage and the final between Italy and West Germany (3-1).

Club president Mendoza therefore initiated an extensive redevelopment project that included extending the third tier over the entire stadium, the creation of corporate facilities, and four access towers in each corner of the stadium. Works started in 1992 and were completed two years later.

The Santiago Bernabéu Stadium underwent a refurbishment project from 2001 to 2006 which focused on improving corporate facilities. The project was completed in 2006 with the construction of a roof over the one remaining uncovered stand.

The Santiago Bernabéu Stadium has hosted four European Cup and Champions League finals in its history.

Four architects were asked to present designs, from which the winner was chosen later in 2013. However, due to an investigation of the European Union into the granting of illegal state aid, the project was first put on hold and later rejected by the Madrid city council.

In 2019, Real Madrid began work on a new stadium that was planned to be completed in 2½ years. However, when the Covid-19 pandemic hit in 2020 and matches had to be played behind closed doors, the works were accelerated and the team moved their home games to Estadio Alfredo de Stefano of their reserves team.

How to get to the Bernabeu

The Santiago Bernabéu Stadium is located in central Madrid on the Paseo de la Castellana, one of the city's principal avenues. It is about 4 kilometers north of Plaza de Cibeles, where the Paseo de la Castellana originates. It is similarly distant from Puerta del Sol, one of Madrid's main squares. The stadium can be reached by metro line 10. The stop Santiago Bernabeu is located right next to the stadium. In the centre, line 10 can be caught at Plaza de España or Tribunales, but it can also be reached by transferring (e.g. line 1 from Puerta del Sol or Atocha train station).

From Atocha, Paseo del Prado, or Plaza de Cibeles one can take bus 14 to get to the stadium. Bus 14 will take you in the direction of Avenida Pio XII. It will pass the stadium on the Paseo La Habana.

From there, it is a short walk to the cathedral. From the Metro Callao station in the city centre, one can take bus 147. Take the bus in the direction of Barrio del Pilar and get off at Plaza Lima. From there, it is a short walk to the Cathedral.

From there it is a short walk to the basilica. From Puerta del Sol, one can take bus 150 in the direction of Colonia Virgen del Cortijo. Again, get off at Plaza Lima. From there, it is a short walk to the basilica.

Address: Avenida de Concha Espina 1, Madrid

Eat, drink, and sleep near the Bernabeu

The Santiago Bernabéu Stadium is located on the Paseo de la Castellana avenue, one of Madrid's major arteries. The area around the stadium is a mix of mostly offices, shops, and residential buildings. There are enough bars and coffee shops to find something to eat or drink. As you walk south, the number of bars and restaurants increases. Most nightlife is located in the northern parts of the centre.

There are a number of hotels in the vicinity of the Bernabeu. The Holiday Inn Madrid, AC Hotel Aitana, and Rafaelhoteles Orense are all good options and have many positive reviews. However, they are not inexpensive.

Further away are Espahotel Plaza Basílica, Hotel Gran Atlanta, Hostal Falfes, Hostal Los Ángeles, and Sunotel Amaral. They have good reviews, are all close to several metro stations, tend to be reasonably priced between ?50.00 and ?100.00 per night, and are no further than 20 minutes walking from the Bernabeu.

If you're looking for a hotel near Estadio Santiago Bernabeu, you've come to the right place. Here you can find listings for all of the hotels near the stadium, as well as other options in the city centre.

Real Madrid Tickets

Tickets for Real Madrid games can be bought online, at the ticket windows (tickets) of Estadio Santiago Bernabéu, or through the official website. Tickets that are bought online can be picked up from the printing kiosks at the stadium.

Tickets for Real Madrid's regular matches tend to go on sale in the week before the match. However, VIP tickets are available earlier and are typically more expensive. There is rarely a good reason to buy a VIP ticket for a Real Madrid game, as they usually sell out very few times per season. If you want to buy tickets, they are generally available much earlier if purchased through the club's website.

The likes of viagogo and Stubhub offer good options and tend to be reliable, though they can get expensive. Prices for regular matches tend to be fairer though or even lower than face value, and can offer an alternative for those wanting to book their tickets longer in advance.

Price tickets for games vary depending on the opponent but typically start at $30.00 for a seat behind the goal and $40.00 for a seat at one of the sides.

Stadium tours

Real Madrid offers self-guided stadium tours, during which you follow a route through the stadium. The route includes the dugouts, presidential box, press room, changing rooms, players' tunnel and trophy room, and ends in the club shop. The stadium opens Monday-Saturday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Sunday and public holidays from 10:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. On match days the tour is open until 5 hours before kickoff (though with limited access).

No reservations are required, though the tour can be booked online. The entrance costs ?25.00 with further premium options available.

Useful websites

Real Madrid Official website. official guide for the city of Madrid. Travel information for the Madrid metro. Public transport information for Madrid. I found the atmosphere to be good and quite relaxed in comparison to the big British derbies. The stadium is superb, but it's starting to look a bit dated. The upcoming renovation is needed, and it's a must if you're in Madrid.

Hi!

Although your stadium review is comprehensive, I have noticed recent information you might want to take into account in order to provide the most accurate picture possible.

That last step is said to be done in a very short period of time, likely within weeks or months, so that construction work would start in the summer of 2018 and be finally finished by mid-2020. Once we are authorized to renovate the Bernabéu and manage to finish the renovation, we could be talking about one of the best stadiums in the world (if not the best).

The renovation will not interrupt football-related activity in the stadium. Work that inhibits football activity will be done in winter and summer breaks so that the stadium will always be ready to host matches except for those periods of time. Apart from that, the renovation will also affect Esquina del Bernabéu shopping center and Paseo de La Castellana. The renovation will create a new 6000 Sq Plaza de los Sagrados Corazones and another green zone between the stadium and Paseo de La Castellana.

This paragraph provides a summary of the stadium renovation in active voice using formal tone. The stadium will be both an architectural jewel and a Mecca for football fans with the renovation. Additionally, it would be helpful to include information about the design, capacity distribution and opinions of locals and fans on the renovation.

It is worth mentioning that free match day programmes are available from inside the stadium. The support was not the best. The stadium itself is beautiful and well worth visiting.

It is a massive stadium and even if you are seated at the very top you still manage to see everything as the upper tiers go up. The support from Real fans was good, but Ajax fans were amazing! It is a great place to go.

The most beautiful stadium I have been to. It is great location. I went to watch Real against Ajax in Champions League. I bought the ticket at the ground for 35 Euros. It is massive and even if you are sat at the very top you still manage to see everything as the upper tiers go up rather than up and back.

Graham wrote: I agree that the stadium is wonderful and right in the city center. It has a bit of a Newcastle-St James Park feel to it, except that it seats 80,000 plus and the climate is better! I watched Real come back to win against Espanyol and the atmosphere was electric - the match ended around 11:30pm. After that, we had a few bars, and then made it back to our hotel in time for breakfast.

I agree that the stadium is wonderful and right in the heart of the city. In some ways, it resembles St James Park in Newcastle, except that it seats 80,000 people plus and the climate is better! I watched Real come back to win against Espanyol and the atmosphere was electric - the match ended around 11:30pm, then we spent a few bars night and returned to our hotel room for breakfast the next morning.

The Santiago Bernabeu is a fantastic stadium to visit in Madrid! I watched Real Madrid play against Real Zaragoza last year (2011) and they lost 3-2 but still the experience of watching Real Madrid was amazing and Fantastic!

The tour at Manchester United is much better in these respects. I had an excellent tour guide, Marianne.
