Berlin is worth a visit 365 days a year. How about a romantic trip to Berlin? Doesn't matter if your perfect date includes action, wellness, candlelight dinner or a romantic walk: In this top 11 we present the most beautiful things to celebrate your love in Berlin.
1. Sunday brunch
There’s probably no better way to start the day than with a hearty brunch. How about brunching with some French style at Café Fleury, paying with the old German mark at Café Sieben, or enjoying a bit of Viennese coffee house tradition at Sowohlalsauch? More breakfast cafés can be found here.
2. Ice skating
Time to work off brunch with a bit of exercise! So what could be more romantic than going ice skating on one of Berlin's many rinks? You need an alternative tip for summer time? Then get off the well-beaten tourist path and explore Berlin's neighbourhoods by cycling! Pick one of our 50 bicycle tours. And for the romantics: don't forget the picnic basket!
3. Active date
If cycling or skating is not quite your thing, then you should consider one of the following: go to Bergwerk, Europe’s largest indoor and first adventure climbing park, play a round of mini golf in a room lit with black light, or run an obstacle course with laser beams at the SPY Museum.
4. Romantic stroll
It doesn’t have to be quite so active, of course: a leisurely stroll is just as romantic. Possible destinations could include the Insel der Jugend (Isle of Youth), the Modersohnbrücke (bring a lock to declare your love), or a trip to Little Venice in Spandau.
5. Love is in the air
Float on cloud nine with a balloon ride over Berlin. You can choose to ascend with the tethered ballon at Checkpoint Charlie or go for a proper balloon ride high up in the air.
6. Feel like a prince and a princess
Love was so complicated in the past. See how by exploring the many beautiful palaces in and around Berlin and Potsdam.
A beautiful panorama is twice as enjoyable when seen in the arms of your lover. Take something warm to drink and your camera and head out to Berlin’s best panoramic views.
