How to get to Europa Park

Torrejón - Europa Park - Tower BridgeThe best way to get to. Parque Europa is by car. To do this, take the A-2 and take exit 18 towards Torrejón de Ardoz.

Once in the city you just have to follow the information that appears throughout the city to get to the park.

If you don’t have a car you can go by public transport as we explain later, but if you go from the center of Madrid it will take a long time to get there.

It must be said that most of the replicas are very well made and from a distance they can even be confused with the original, but there are others, such as the Eiffel Tower, that have nothing to do with reality. Without a doubt, it is a good place to spend the afternoon and also to enjoy with children.
