InterNations — A Community for American Expats in Madrid

Hello to all Americans in Madrid! Are you interested in getting to know fellow expats in Madrid? Looking for advice from other Americans, e.g. wondering if there are any bars in Madrid which will be showing your favorite baseball or American football team’s upcoming match or where to go in town for st■ turkey?

There’s no doubt about it: Madrid is a lively city with a lot to offer. The Spanish capital is a vibrant city known for its impressive architecture, art galleries, delicious food, and much more! With the bus services, metro, trains, and taxis, navigating your way around the city from one place to the next is simple. This also means that if you don’t want to live among the hustle and bustle of the center, you can enjoy a quieter life in La Moraleja or San Sebastian de los Reyes, for example, which are both approximately a 30-minute train ride away from Madrid’s center.

Although Madrid has lots to offer, you might be wondering where and how you can meet other Americans in the city. Luckily, InterNations is here to make this easier for you! You’re warmly invited to join the InterNations community. Within our international network in Madrid, there’s a vibrant circle of American expats from all regions of USA, including New York City, Los Angeles, and beyond.

    Thanks to InterNations, I found a good language school for expats to take intensive classes in Spanish and socialize a bit more.
