Romantic Spots for Valentine’s Day

Tips for 14th February

There are many romantic spots in Berlin – in summer, for example a camp fire on the beach at Wannsee or the Gendarmenmarkt in the warm summer rain. For Valentine’s Day on 14th February, going for a walk in the snow-covered forests of Berlin, enjoying an evening meal by candlelight in a cosy restaurant, or just an intimate meeting to drink glühwein (mulled wine) are all great ideas. We would like to present you here with three ideas for spending Valentine’s Day in Berlin that are all about love:

This is the time that light powdered snow covers the shallow hills of Havelberge. Why not go for a small walk of discovery starting from Pichelsberg S-Bahn station in the direction of the banks of the Havel below the Rupenhorn colony with its beautiful villas build in the Bauhaus style. For many years, a rather elderly ship has been lying at anchor there, its onboard restaurant enticing guests with outstanding meals and warm drinks – all this with a wonderful view of the frozen-over Havel. And the name of the ship is also well suited to Valentine’s Day: also when love should still be young.

For many decades now, the cinema has been a popular spot for a first date. The cloak of darkness provides wonderful possibilities – especially if the film isn’t that interesting! A particularly suitable cinema in this regard is the “Pärchenkino” (Couple’s Cinema), the 2nd of the double Kant cinema complex in Charlottenburg. There are double armchairs here in a small, cosy plush red cinema room available for visitors – especially visitors in love. It’s very possible that there will be a film especially suitable for Valentine’s Day on the programme. It’s difficult to imagine a more romantic way to round off the day.

Outside it’s freezing and windy. So, after a romantic stroll along Friedrichstraße or Museum Island, you’ll be looking for a cosy little place to warm up again. The Tadzhikistani tearoom in the former House of German Soviet Friendship not far from Hegelplatz in Berlin-Mitte is the perfect place: sitting cross-legged on soft, fleecy cushions on warm carpets by candlelight, you can choose from over twenty kinds of freshly brewed tea out of a samovar. And for those who like it even warmer, there’s a drop or two of “far eastern fire water” to add to the tea.
