New Years Eve Madrid 2017 Countdown and Fireworks Parties
New Years Eve 2017 Madrid will, as in past years, attract an incredible crowd of both locals and visitors alike on the popular Real Casa de Correos.

As the crowds eat the 12 grapes, Madrid’s massive golden ball starts to drop, marking the end of 2014 and the start of 2017. All ages are welcome to the festivities and after the countdown is complete, the adults who are ready to party break open a bottle of the bubbly in one of the many fun local bars. The New Years Eve parties in Madrid often last until dawn and the bars usually keep their doors open until the last patron has left.
