Bernabeu Stadium Tour

What to expect on Bernabeu Tour

The Bernabeu Tour begins at the highest part of the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium, with stunning panoramic views of the field from the second stand.

You get a sense of the massive Stadium that can seat more than 80,000 spectators. 

You then continue the tour to the ‘Best Club Ever Room’ to see the collection of objects and trophies won by Real Madrid over the years. 

After seeing the silverware, you will understand why Real Madrid is known as the ‘Best club of the 20th century’. 

You learn about Real Madrid’s history at the Sensations Room through its past legends and titles won.

In this room, you can see the current first team’s skills and goals and see them interacting in an audiovisual presentation projected on an 11-meter (36 feet) screen.

After taking photographs and selfies with your idols, you move to the ‘Kings of Europe’ room to see the 13 European Cups won by Real Madrid. 

Santiago Bernabeu Tour then takes you to the team benches, where you can try being in the Real Madrid coach’s difficult shoes.

From near the benches, you also get a privileged view of the play area, which usually only the players experience. 

Next, it is time for the dressing room, which is the most important place for any soccer team, for it is here that they receive instructions from the coach and prepare for the match. 

Finally, you head to the press room, where the team’s coach handles the media’s questions.

You get out of the Tour del Bernabeu feeling like a Real Madrid player.

How long does Bernabeu tour take

Real Madrid fans are known to spend at least three to four hours on the Santiago Bernabeu tour.

That’s because fans spend a lot of time taking pictures, taking official pictures ‘with’ the players, sit in the club seats on the field to soak in the experience, spend time in the shop looking at souvenirs, etc. 

Tourists in a hurry are known to finish their Real Madrid stadium tour in 90 minutes or so. 

The guided tour of Santiago Bernabeu Stadium, where an official Real Madrid CF guide takes you around, also lasts 90 minutes. However guided tours are not highly rated.

Self-guided vs. Guided Bernabeu Tour

Both the tours follow the same route, and visitors can see the same places of interest within Stadium Santiago Bernabeu.

All visitors on a Santiago Bernabeu Tour get to see and experience the following – 

  • Panoramic view of the Stadium
  • The ‘Best Club in History’ room
  • ‘Sensations’ room
  • Video and photo-montages with players
  • Walk around the perimeter of the playing field.
  • Virtual reality area
  • The Presidential Box
  • First team dressing room
  • Players’ tunnel
  • The pressroom
  • Official souvenir shop

However, on a guided tour, Real Madrid’s official guides make the visit far more memorable by sharing history, narrating anecdotes, etc. 

They also ensure that you don’t miss any of the important exhibits and experiences.

On a self-guided tour, the Bernabeu Tour audio guide available in ten languages helps you through. 

Another difference is the timing of your visit – self-guided tickets are available all through the day while the guided tours are available only during four times a day. 

From Monday to Saturday, Guided Bernabeu Tours start at 10.30 am, 12.30 pm, 3.30 pm, and 5.30 pm, and on Sundays (and holidays), the tours begin at 11 am, 1 pm, 3 pm, and 5 pm.
