Madrid, city of history and of culture, of monuments and of rich gastronomy, of elegant boulevards and of expansive parks. Madrid, city of art and of cinema, of zarzuela and of night clubs. Madrid, city of cooking challenges and of survival activities, of historical gymkhanas and of musical workshops. Yes, we too have left our stamp on the city. Thanks to our central agency, Es.cultura Events plans all types of incentives and team building in Madrid. If you are thinking of organising a team building in Spain, don’t overlook Madrid. Read on to discover some of the activities that we organise in the Spanish capital.
#1 Team Building in Madrid : historical gymkhanas
There is no better way to discover Madrid than with a guided tour of the city. And there is no better way to optimise your teamwork than with one of Es.cultura Events’ historical team building activities. Challenge your team and delight them all at once thanks to our “Madrid of the Austrians” team building. Participants need to complete a series of tasks while they discover the city’s monuments, heritage, and secrets. A group of actors guides you through the city, taking you to the Plaza de Oriente, the gardens of the Palacio de Oriente, the Almudena Cathedral, the Convento de la Encarnación, and much more. Contact us to find out more information on the “Madrid of the Austrians” event. This team building activity is 100% our own production – no other event planner in Madrid plans gymkhanas like Es.cultura!
You can also discover Madrid from a different angle thanks to our Zarzuela Route, very popular amongst DMC in Madrid. Centred around the famous musical genre, the Zarzuela, this historical and musical team building activity combines a guided tour of the city, live street performances, and guided tours of the museums and historic sites. Our Zarzuela Route is a delightfully entertaining and creative team building in Madrid that is 100% customisable to match our clients’ needs.
#2 Team Building in Madrid : survival team building
Pretend to be participants of the famous television show “Survivor” thanks to our survival team building event just outside Madrid, in the natural park of Alcalá de Henares to be precise. Put your team through a series of survival challenges in the great outdoor; you will improve team cohesion and build the motivation of your workers. Our team welcomes you in the centre of Madrid and takes you to the natural park where we begin our day of surviving the elements. No doubt you will greatly appreciate the rich biodiversity and heritage of the park!
Divided into groups, participants need to put to work simple values and tasks that are part of working as a team: assigning tasks, active listening, concentration, orientation, coordination, and a number of other skills. Groups accumulate points in each challenge that they complete. But beware! All challenges are timed, and only one team will be crowned champion at the end of the day. The keys to success are to be able to work well as a team and to complete all the challenges faster than all other teams: orientation circuits, building shelters, etc.
#3 Team Building in Madrid: “Master Chef” cooking challenge
How about trying a team building cooking challenge in the format of the famous television show Master Chef to empower and unite your team? This is the perfect setting to let your team’s imagination run wild, to optimise teamwork, and to immerse your workers into Spain’s fine cuisine. Upon arrival, our team will welcome you and the challenge starts under the guidance of a professional chef and of an actor impersonating the role of a demanding chef. Participants are divided into small groups and each group needs to appoint a lead chef for their team.
In this team building in Madrid, participants are required to prepare recipes using only the ingredients and utensils provided for the challenge. Just like in the television show, only one team can be crowned champion. In order to win, teams need to finish preparing the recipes within the time limits, show creativity and a good presentation, and above all… work well as a team. Our clients and the DMC in Spain that we work with love adding this team building activity to their incentive travel in Spain.
