Burgos Guide

Car Hire

Burgos is one of Spain’s lively cities, with roughly 175,000 inhabitants, and is conveniently situated within reachable distance by car from the capital Madrid in addition to the cities of Bilbao and Santander. As a popular tourist destination, Burgos offers UNESCO World Heritage sites, fine architecture and plenty of lush green parks.

Who to Book With
There are five car hire companies for tourists to choose from, the majority of which accept online reservations. Alquiler Clásico bodas Burgos is the most centrally-located company while Hertz and Avis are also within reach of the city centre of Calle Madrid and Calle Maestro respectively. Europcar and Conalrent are located east of the city centre.

Best Time to go
As Burgos enjoys a typical Spanish climate, there is no 'bad' time to visit weather-wise. Those that wish for the city to be less busy than other periods should probably opt to book outside of the months running from June to August.

- Valid driving license from home country or International Driving Permit

Driving
Driving in Burgos is a lot less stressful than in larger Spanish cities and those with rental vehicles should not encounter difficulties. Finding a parking space in the centre can be excruciating, however, unless the vehicle is left in a private parking lot.

See our guide to Spain for more information on driving in this country.

Transport

While it is generally advised to navigate Burgos via a private rental car, there are plenty of other options given the city's expansive public transport network. While there are no trains around Burgos, there are plenty of buses, taxis and even bicycles that can be rented easily.

Trains
Trains to Burgos are possible from both Spanish and European cities. One of the most popular overnight routes runs from the French capital of Paris and stops in Burgos before eventually terminating at Madrid. Trains from Paris to Lisbon and Porto in Portugal also make stops at Burgos. Domestically, rail transport is possible to and from Barcelona, Madrid, Bilbao, Vigo and Corunna. These services are mainly supplied by Spanish Railways RENFE and TGV.

Taxis
Official taxis are painted white and also have a red-coloured stripe on their front doors. Tariffs are clearly stated and vary depending on the time of day or week. While taxi ranks can be found all over the city, there also a few private hire companies, such as Abutaxi, Fidel and Rual Ortega Gutierrez Taxis.

Buses
Burgos boasts a vast network of buses, on which tickets can be purchased for around ₤0.75. These cover practically every corner of the city and its suburbs. Transport from other cities such as Bilbao and Madrid is possible with Alsa.

Exploring

While in Burgos, tourists can enjoy marvelling at fine architecture such as the Burgos Cathedral, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, as well as shopping and fine dining in the old quarter before relaxing in any one of the various parks within the CBD. Those that are fans of both history and science usually pay a visit to the Museum of Human Evolution, which was opened in July 2010.

Recommended Drives

Madrid - This can be reached by completing an idyllic journey of 160kms. Once you have arrived in the Spanish capital, you can enjoy attractions such as the Royal Palace and the El Prado museum prior to sampling some of the world's most renowned nightlife. Watching the world-famous Real Madrid football team is a not-to-be-missed option for sports fans.

Bilbao - To get here head along the picturesque BU550. Before reaching the capital of the Basque region, quaint villages such as Ona and historical cities including Segovia can all be enjoyed easily.

Granada - Nestled at the base of the Sierra Nevada mountains, Granada is a picturesque city of winding hills and mountainous terrain. As the journey down the N432 is slow due to windy conditions, this means that there is plenty of time to absorb all of the spectacular scenery on show.
