5 Top experiences for New Year’s Eve in Madrid

Madrid,it’s a city that comes to life in a big way on New Year’s Eve.  Locals always go out of their way to warmly welcome visitors and show them how to celebrate the coming of the New Year in the Spanish way by eating 12 grapes, one for every strike of the clock ( located in Puerta del Sol ) until the midnight hour strikes.


As the crowds eat the 12 grapes, Madrid’s massive golden ball starts to drop, marking the end of 2015 and the start of 2016. After the countdown is complete Partiers will move to a club. Remember, the New Year’s Eve parties in Madrid last until dawn and the bars usually keep their doors open until the last patron has left!
