If you're still looking for a gift for your sweetheart, take a look at our 11 Valentine's Day gift tips.
And if you're not in the mood for romance and togetherness, you'll find plenty of ideas for a day full of variety in Berlin on our blog.
Tip 1: Start the day together
Start the day in a relaxed way with a cosy brunch or an extensive breakfast. For example, try the cool Frühstück3000 in Schöneberg or the sumptuous brunch buffet at Café Morgenland in Kreuzberg. Or enjoy one of the fine breakfasts at one of Berlin's luxury hotels. And if you have to work on Tuesday, why not bring brunch forward to Sunday?
Tip 2: Discover romantic places
Where is it particularly nice in Berlin for a walk for two or a trip into the blue? We have put together a few places for you to go for a walk, to unwind together - and of course for a declaration of love. The hearts of all lovers will beat faster ...
Tip 3: Immerse into Klimt's world
Klimt's gold Art Nouveau painting "The Kiss" is probably one of the most famous depictions of a kiss. In the immersive multimedia exhibition, you can immerse yourself in the painting and lose yourself in it together ... The exhibition takes you on a journey through time to Gustav Klimt's life and work, which comes to life thanks to state-of-the-art technology.
Where: Musikbrauerei, Greifswalder Str. 23 a, Prenzlauer Berg
When: until 10 April
Tip 4: Stroll the Walk of Fame
Do you adore Hollywood's great love stories? Then let's go to Kantstraße ... The exhibition Walk of Fame in the Camera Work Gallery shows around 60 photographs of famous Hollywood screen stars. Marilyn Monroe, Clark Gable, Marlene Dietrich ... they all embody the glamour and grace of Hollywood. In addition to the well-known iconographic photographs, there are also portraits shown for the first time that offer you completely new insights.
When: 11 February - 22 April
Where: Camera Work Gallery, Kantstraße 149, Charlottenburg
Tip 5: Try something sweet with your sweetheart
If you're not so keen on the classic box of chocolates and would rather try something new, head to one of the many cool dessert shops. Homemade Baumstriezel, churros, original waffles or delicious cookies will melt in your mouth and make you happy.
Tip 6: Discover the beauty of Schadow's sculptures
Delicate and graceful they look at you: the princesses Luise and Friederike of Prussia, captured forever in the famous princess group by the sculptor Johann Gottfried Schadow. The Alte Nationalgalerie (Old National Gallery) is dedicating its first retrospective in around 30 years to the sculptor and is showing his most important major works - including, of course, probably his most beautiful work, the sculpture of two young princesses. After visiting the exhibition, you can still stroll through Mitte and marvel at other important sculptures in the Friedrichwerdersche Kirche.
When: until 19 February
Where: Old National Gallery, Bodestraße, Mitte
Tip 7: Enjoy Cosmic Kisses
Love is all you need. Listen to the most beautiful love songs from six decades at the Valentine's Day Special in the Zeiss Planetarium while the starry sky passes overhead. And maybe your most beloved song will be among them.
When: 14 February, 7 and 9 p.m.
Where: Zeiss Grossplanetarium, Prenzlauer Allee 80, Prenzlauer Berg
Tip 8: Swing with Max Raabe
"Max Raabe & Palast Orchester - Who's in a bad mood here?" is the translation of the name of the new programme by the popular singer with the inimitable voice. You won't be in a bad mood at the show, as Max Raabe has put together a lively programme with all-new songs and some classics from his repertoire. So get dressed up for a stylish evening with great music and lots of good humour.
When: 14 - 25 February
Where: Admiralspalast, Friedrichstraße 101, Mitte
Tip 9: Enjoy a delicious dinner
The way to a loved one's heart is through his or her stomach. So what could be more natural than enjoying love - and a delicious meal - over dinner. Especially for Valentine's Day, the Caual fine dining restaurant The CORD on the EUREF campus in Schöneberg opens its doors and serves you a special menu for your dinner date with the best that winter has to offer - and a view of spring. Osteria Maria in Steglitz, for example, offers a 5-course candlelight dinner for those who are newly in love, have been together for a long time or are still looking. ALvis in Mitte also serves a fine candlelight dinner with three selected courses, including the dessert "Sweet Seduction for Two".
Tip 10: Descend into the hell of harmony
Every relationship has its moments of conflict. And so the Museum of Communication is about quarrels and love. After a guided tour of the exhibition with the beautiful title "STRUGGLE. An Approach", the theatre group Gesellschaftsbühne will improvise with you about relationship issues. And after all the arguing, you can then reconcile by dancing together. After Les Belles Magnifiques have put you in the mood with a glamorous 1920s show, you will then float together across the dance floor - and end the evening in harmony.
When: 14 February
Where: Museum für Kommunikation, Leipziger Straße 16, Mitte
Tip 11: Compete in the Valentine's Run
Although not directly on Valentine's Day, the Valentine's Run through the Gardens of the World starts on the following Sunday. You can choose between the small (5km) or the big love (10km) and also participate as a walker, Nordic walker and baby jogger. Please register in advance.
When: 19 February
Where: Gärten der Welt, Blumberger Damm 44, Marzahn
