Christmas is coming! Days filled with joy, friends and family. It’s the perfect time of the year to take a breath, plan a small getaway and gather strengths to fulfil all your New Year’s resolutions. And what about you? Do you already have plans for this year?
If you still haven’t decided, we recommend you come to Madrid to and spend with us the most enjoyable night of the year. Do you want to discover why?
New Year’s Eve in Madrid
Madrid is a city with a wide variety of things to do, people, leisure… And during the Christmas season, you will enjoy the busy capital together with the fabulous Christmas spirit, making this the perfect time of the year to discover the city.
In Madrid you will find many plans to enjoy a different type of Christmas: starting with the traditional visit to Sol to enjoy the 12 strokes of midnight, continuing with dinners in theatres, original restaurants, karaoke’s, night clubs… limitless options so you can enjoy this special night with your friends or family.
Puerta del Sol in the New Year’s Eve.
We’ve all surely spent at least one New Year’s Eve in front of the TV. In Spain, we live this joyful moment, eating one grape at the sound of every chime.
Imagine the sensation of discovering this event live. The sound of the 12 strokes of midnight, the atmosphere at Puerta del Sol, the contagious happiness surrounding you, the fireworks…
It’s an unforgettable experience. If this year you decide to live it from up close, take into account our following suggestions:
1. Go with enough time. Many people go to Puerta del Sol that night, where the security measures are very strict. If you want to avoid any last minute nerves, the ideal thing is for you to go with enough time.
2. Take only the essentials. In spite of the security measures, there’s a lot of people, and sometimes pickpocketing can happen. Be careful and don’t carry any valuables to avoid any annoyances.
3. Don’t forget the grapes! Remember to take 12 grapes with you! And if you don’t like the seeds, take them already prepared. If you don’t have any grapes, don’t worry, there’s many shops around where you will be able to buy a prepared kit for that night.
New Year’s Eve with kids.
If this New Year’s you’re travelling with kids, you will also be able to enjoy many plans in the city for everyone.
Start with a walk around Plaza Mayor, so you can buy some nice costumes. In this time of the year, there’s many Christmas markets throughout the city, the most important one being the one in Plaza Mayor. You’re surely find the most enjoyable style for each and one of you.
You can continue your afternoon with a walk in the centre and enjoying the Christmas lighting. In this time, Madrid is filled with lights and garlands, and joyful Christmas figurines.
Also the shopping centres in the city make the most out of this time to entertain the smallest ones of the house with activities and shows. So… if you still have some strength, go to one of them so your children can have even more fun.
And what about dinner? You can choose amongst one of the thousands of restaurants of the city, where you will find children’s menus and even magic and comedy shows after the strokes of midnight, or you can look for an alternative activity. There’s thousands of options!
For example, a different plan that your children will love is going to see the Lion King’s play. The Lope de Vega theatre hosts a special edition on December 31st at 10:30 PM. The ideal plan to enjoy with your family. The play has a duration of 2h 45 minutes with a small recess.
Another great option is the New Year’s Eve Gala at Santiago Bernabeu, for the whole family. It has adult and children’s menus, and after the grapes there’s a party for all ages.
