Berlin is at its most beautiful when experienced together. Since we know that people in love often like to enjoy spending time alone as a couple, we have set out to find the best places for cosy togetherness on Valentine's Day. We have compiled for you ideas for beautiful excursions, but also unexpected romantic places in the middle of Berlin, in the heart of the city, so that you also on cold winter days warm your heart.
We hope you have a romantic time!
Tip 1: Park Glienicke
In the very south of Berlin, it is easy to dream of Italy: Glienicke Palace with its extensive park was built in the style of an Italian villa. Stroll through the enchanting grounds and enjoy the view of the water. The enchanting mansion is open on weekends, but the park alone promises pure romance - even in winter. And then you can also visit the Glienicke Bridge and stroll along the banks of river Havel.
Where: Glieniecke, Königstraße 36, Zehlendorf
Tip 2: Charlottenburg Palace
If you want to feel like a prince and princess, then visit the magnificent Charlottenburg Palace. The Golden Gallery and the White Hall in the playful rococo style are undoubtedly among the most beautiful halls in all of Europe and will take you back to times gone by. Also take a look at Antoine Watteau's painting The Embarkation to Cythera, which perfectly matches the romantic mood with its gallant feast in Arcadian landscapes.
Where: Charlottenburg Palace, Schlossstraße 1, Charlottenburg

Tip 3: Lake Tegel
Are you drawn outside for a long walk in the cold winter air? Then a trip to the lake Tegeler See is worthwhile. Here you can walk together along the waterfront and then warm up with coffee and cake in the cafés along the Greenwich Promenade.
Tip 4: Panoramapunkt
The Panoramapunkt at Potsdamer Platz takes you up high. Europe's fastest elevator whizzes you up to the viewing platforms on the Kohlhoff Tower. There, a breathtaking view of the entire city and its sights awaits you. In the glazed café you can strengthen yourselves and look together into the sky over Berlin.
Where: Panoramapunkt, Potsdamer Platz 1, Mitte
Tip 5: Königliche Gartenakademie
Right next to the Botanical Garden in Dahlem is the Königliche Gartenakademie (Royal Garden Academy), a hidden gem. Here you can escape the gray winter weather and let the scent of lemon in the central aisle whisk you away to Italy. The first early bloomers, which are opening their buds, promise a touch of spring. And in the café, surrounded by the fragrant plants, you can enjoy fine cakes or a delicious breakfast.
Where: Königliche Gartenakademie, Altensteinstraße 15a, Zehlendorf

Tip 6: Alte Nationalgalerie
Visit the most beautiful paintings of the Romantic period together. In the museum Alte Nationalgalerie on Museum Island you can immerse yourself in such wonderful works as the paintings of Caspar David Friedrich and Carl Blechen and lose yourself in their nature experiences together. The Alte Nationalgalerie still holds many treasures, so take your time to look around and discover your own personal favorite painting that you will always remember.

Tip 7: Extraordinary cinemas
For a nice evening for two, it should not only be the right film, but also the right cinema. Instead of a soulless multiplex palace then rather visit one of the many charming movie palaces. The Cinema Paris on Kurfürstendamm and the Kino International near Alexanderplatz date from the 1950s and 1960s and are in the elegant style of the New Objectivity. The Zoopalast and the Astor Filmlounge are also among the most beautiful halls in the city - the perfect setting for a date.
Tip 8: At the opera
Great passion reigns on the opera stage: Don José is hopelessly in love with the beautiful Carmen, Mimi dies in Rudolfo's arms and Tosca tries everything to save her lover. And so the Berlin opera houses are the perfect places for a romantic evening with great emotions. By the way, here you have the choice of three opera houses, all of which offer a fascinating repertoire. The orchestras in the Philharmonie and the Konzerthaus am Gendarmenmarkt will make you dream.
Tip 9: At the piano
Tip 10: At the fireplace
Baby, it's cold outside. When it gets uncomfortable outside, make yourself comfortable inside - preferably by a crackling fireplace. Enjoy the warmth of the fireplace in the rustic Café am Neuen See or try Georgian specialties at Restoranti Tbilisi in Prenzlauer Berg. As the name suggests, the Schneeweiß is stylishly decorated all in white, where not only the fire but also the hearty cheese fondue will warm you up.

Tip 11: In a stylish Bar
If you want to end the evening together and are looking for a nice place to do so, then the city's wine and cocktail bars are the place to go. At the chic Bonvivant in Schöneberg, you can get not only excellent cocktails, but also fine food. Very elegant, of course, are the bars and lounges in the city's big hotels. The Provocateur Bar in Wilmersdorf is very seductive and wicked in the burlesque style of the 1920s.
