What to do in Madrid during September

Now that summer has come to an end, Madrid is welcoming back all those who left the capital in search of a holiday abroad. The city is preparing for a new cycle, without even leaving behind the good weather. During September, a transition occurs at the end of many summer activities such as summer theatres, swimming pools, terraces and outdoor living and instead, a new agenda that includes gastronomy, sports, culture, and general leisure starts emerging. 

In the field of art, the most important exhibition is held until September 25th at del Prado Museum. "El Bosco. La exposición del Centenario” commemorates the death of the great Flemish painter Hieronymus Bosch from the 5th century. For this exhibition, el Prado welcomes 65 artworks from its own collection, along with other paintings from museums like Albertina and Vienna Kunsthistorisches, Fine Arts of Boston, Metropolitan New York, National Gallery in Washington and the Parisian Louvre.

Madrid's music scene continues its activity in the last throes of summer, taking advantage of September to celebrate the open-air festival DCODE for the sixth time. The concert is held in the Campus of the Complutense University. To keep up with the same style of large European festivals, on Saturday September 10th, 18 hours of non-stop indie rock music from both national and international bands will march the streets, with singers like Eagles of Death Metal, Bunbury and Love of Lesbian.

In fashion, there are some great offers from designers in and around the famous Salamanca district's "Golden Mile". On the evening of September 18th, you can enjoy a special event, such as Vogue Fashion Night Out. During this night, more than 180 shops, hotels and restaurants stay open until midnight to offer shows, live music and unique discounts.

The Spanish cuisine has two dates to mark in Madrid. On the 9th and 10th, plaza de toros will host the exhibition called “Cómete las Ventas”. This is where more than 80 food producers in the region offer their best products. For those who prefer foreign products, between 22nd and 25th September, the Barclaycard Center, better known as the Palacio de los Deportes, will become the little Munich to celebrate "Oktoberfest Madrid 2016", as organised by Paulaner.

In sports, in addition to traditional activities and with the permission of Football Champions League, cycling will take up an important role. At beginner level, Matadero Madrid will host the “Festibal con B de bici” (Bike Festibal with a B) on September 17th. There will also be various events to raise awareness about Madrid's bicycle transport network. We should also not forget the “Vuelta Ciclista a España” (a cycling tour) which is at its last stage and the winners announcement will be held in the streets of the capital.
