Listen to the crowds roar at midnight when fireworks erupt from casino roofs around the city.
On New Year’s Eve, the talented and award-winning team of Trump Hotel will give a perfect stay.

The 1.2 mile stretch between the Victory Column and Brandenburg Gate is the place to celebrate Silvester – the German word for New Year’s Eve. Live bands and fireworks highlight this notorious outdoor party.
If you want an unforgettable night in Berlin, the Radisson Blu Hotel is a perfect choice.

Hotel Acontraluz is a wonderful place in Valparaíso to spend New Years Eve!
5. Reykjavik, Iceland
After sunset at around 4 pm, visitors in Reykjavik bide their time while locals enjoy mass, neighborhood bonfires and an annual comedy show on T.V. Come midnight, though, Iceland’s capital explodes with 500 tons of fireworks. If you’re lucky, the Northern Lights will blaze above the city, too.
The perfect place to stay in Reykjavik is a member of Design Hotels, 101 Hotel.
4. St. Petersburg, Russia
The grand boulevards and bridges of St. Petersburg will be at their most beautiful covered with a layer of snow and illuminated by holiday lights. The lavish Hermitage Museum is particularly striking on December 31, when it’s surrounded by crowds waiting for the fireworks show over the partially frozen Neva River.
So luxurious, W Saint Petersburg is the perfect hotel to celebrate 2015!
3. London, UK
London lights up as fireworks shoot from rafts on the Thames and the foot of the London Eye. Best spots for watching: Victoria Embankment and the South Bank. Better yet if you hire a barge for exclusive views, then head for the pubs to sing Auld Lang Syne. But don’t stay out too late; the New Year’s Day parade is one of London’s major events.
If you want a party in style, memorable, different and unique, you should choose the Royal Horseguards hotel.
2. Sydney, Austrália
More than a million people gathered to be among the first to usher in 2015. For an unforgettable front row seat, grab tickets for one of the city’s best events with a view — we suggest the Royal Botanic Gardens or the La Bohème gala at the Opera House.
To stay at night, Diamant Hotel is our suggestion.
1. Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
Rio is one of the most stimulating cities in the world. So grab yourself a Caipirinha and sink into the massive crowd of over two million in Ipanema beach. Set dramatically between jungle-covered mountains, famous beaches and Guanabara Bay, Rio seemingly has it all: gorgeous views from Sugarloaf Mountain, some of the world’s sexiest people and to-die-for restaurants for reveling.
The New Year’s Eve celebration at the Belmond Copacabana Palace is one of the best in Rio de Janeiro, with magnificent views of Copacabana fireworks.
