If you want to actually watch the Running of the Bulls®, it is essential to rent a spot on a private balcony. At street level, there are barricades at certain intersections along the bull run route, but getting a view from the top rail is difficult. Thousands gather around 5am to stake out their spot – and only the top row gets a view. In addition, the front barricades are strictly for medical and safety personnel, leaving the view from behind partially blocked.
The best way to watch with a clear view and a comfortable spot is to reserve a balcony space on the bull run route. Prices vary widely, based on the dates and the balcony level. Prices are highest on the first bull run of the festival, on July 7th each year.
Our balconies below include an English-speaking guide to welcome you, coffee and light pastries to help you wake up in the early morning, as well as our Trip Plans app to help you navigate straight to the door of the balcony.
