Trains to Madrid
Madrid by train booking guides
Travelling to Madrid by train is straightforward from almost everywhere in Spain thanks to the continued expansion of Spanish high-speed rail. Trains are fast, frequent and among the most comfortable trains among Europe's high-speed rail.
The impressive AVE network has cut journey times from Barcelona to just 2 and a half hours, while Alvia and Arco trains operate between Madrid and Spain's northern cities like Bilbao and San Sebastian. Even the coastal resorts of Alicante and Malaga are only 3 hours away. Internationally, Madrid is served from Paris by the Elipsos night train, and the TGV with a change at Figueres Vilafant.
