Experience Madrid’s Food and Culture with 'MadRitz' Packages

Hotel Ritz Madrid offers new packages allowing guests to immerse themselves in the local culture and cuisine of Madrid

Christmas at the Hotel Ritz in Madrid.

Hotel Ritz Madrid, an Orient-Express hotel, has launched a new "MadRitz" series of packages to help guests get a full experience of different cultural events in the city. Each package has a specific focus point, from art, historical architecture, and traditional cuisine in the "Mad for Spain" package to family-oriented activities and design-your-own menu options for kids in the "Mad for My Family" package. For the tapas fan, a new "Mad for Tapas" package offers a tapas cooking class as well as an Iberian ham tasting, and culinary gifts to bring back home. The "Mad for Spain" and "Mad for my Family" packages include accommodation and airport transportation, while the "Mad for Tapas" package is a separate culinary experience not including the stay at the hotel.
