Best Places to Spend Valentine's Day in Germany
Take a romantic stroll in Heidelberg, enjoy local cuisine at Bamberg, or walk along the famous Krämerbrücke or Merchants' Bridge in Erfurt. Get ready to explore one of Europe's most clean, friendly and, believe it or not, romantic countries.
Located in the uber-German state of Bavaria, Bamberg is a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site. This cobbled city is home to well-preserved buildings from the 11th to the 19th century, scattered around the city across beautiful bridges and islets. Make sure you try out the local auchbier (smoked beer). For some, it is an acquired taste due to its smoky flavor combined with an afternote of bacon - but if there's anything you should trust the Germans with, it's their quality beer. Include a visit to Rathaus (City Hall) and it's magnificent painted facade in your itinerary.
This destination is a lover's haven. Take in the sites by strolling along the pedestrian streets, visit Heidelberg Castle for an excellent view of the town, and pretend you and your lover are German royalty for the day. Crown it all with a cozy dinner in the perfect ambiance of Schnitzelhaus Alte Münz.
Erfurt is home to the must-visit Krämerbrücke or Merchants' Bridge. Enjoy the architecture of the half-timber houses, one of the most well-preserved and beautiful old architecture examples of Germany. Walk along the bridge's magical string lights for that straight-out-of-the-movies feeling.
4. The Island of Sylt
This place is fantastic if you want to visit beaches, with breathtaking landscapes, and gourmet seafood. These beaches have white sand with a backdrop of red cliffs, which are still beautiful, even in February.
An island on Lake Constance. You get to enjoy gorgeous beaches, dabble in some history in the medieval villages, and marvel at nature's handiwork at the butterfly sanctuary. The harbor is guarded by a Lighthouse and Bavarian lion, the perfect backdrop for romantic selfies. There's also a variety of restaurants for intimate dinners.
