Sunday's 1-0 win over Germany, courtesy of a goal from Liverpool striker Fernando Torres, gave Spain their first major tournament victory in 44 years - they claimed the 1964 European Championship by defeating the Soviet Union.
Earlier, German fans turned out in huge numbers despite seeing their side slip to defeat to welcome their players home when they arrived back in Berlin on Monday.
An estimated 300,000 people were in front of the Brandenburg Gates, after 600,000 fans had cheered their country on the night before.
"I don't think we'd have gone so far without these great fans," said captain Michael Ballack.
"We all saw the TV pictures of what was going on back here and it felt like we had an extra man on the pitch all the time."
