Arriving in Jerez de la Frontera

Most visitors begin by exploring some of Jerez’s famous wineries, then moving on to relax within Hammam Andalusí, the city’s Turkish-style thermal baths.
Your Jerez de la Frontera
Don’t let the numerous sherry-focused attractions deter you from booking flights to Jerez de la Frontera with your family. The city is home to Zoobotánico Jerez, an excellent zoo and botanical garden, as well as Aqualand Bahía de Cádiz, a water park located in nearby Puerto de Santa María.
Making the Most of Your Jerez de la Frontera Holiday
If you are intending to take one of the sherry production tours, do not travel to Jerez de la Frontera in August, as the industry largely shuts down at that time. Look for flight deals to Jerez de la Frontera in June and arrive in time for International Sherry Week. If you are not interested in wines, the off-season can be a good time to find cheap hotels in Jerez de la Frontera. Experience a memorable start to your trip by flying with airberlin.
