Since 1984, the Madrid-Aranjuez route has been honoured with the Strawberry Train, whose atmosphere is reminiscent of 19th century travel. The wooden carriages are an exact replica of the originals and the stewardesses are dressed in period costumes.
The Strawberry Train departs in the morning from the old Delicias Station, today the Railway Museum, and arrives at Aranjuez Station, where a guided tour of the city and the Royal Palace begins. Then there is free time to visit the gardens and return to Madrid in the afternoon. Transportation and entrance fees are included in the overall price.
Line C-3: Aranjuez - Atocha - Sol - Nuevos Ministerios - Chamartín - El Escorial
Trains run regularly in both directions. Although the most central station is Sol, it can be taken from any of the stations on the line. We recommend that you consult the timetables in the search engine that you will find on the website of Cercanías-Renfe.
