Germany is one of the most romantic countries in Europe. The country of medieval castles, fairy tales, old-world architecture and lovely scenic drives through beautiful forests is made for romance. Much of Germany’s romance lies not in the big cities but in exploring hidden, unique, small towns and villages. With all this said, why not book your honeymoon in Germany?
Traveling to Germany can be an exciting and enriching experience, with a wealth of cultural and historical attractions to explore, as well as scenic landscapes and delicious cuisine to savor. Here are some things to keep in mind when planning a trip to Germany:
- Entry requirements – Before traveling to Germany, make sure to check the entry requirements, such as visas and travel restrictions. Depending on your country of origin and the purpose of your trip, you may need to apply for a visa or other special documentation.
- Public Transportation – Germany has an efficient public transportation system, with trains, buses, and trams connecting cities and towns throughout the country. It’s also possible to rent a car, although driving in Germany can be challenging for those not used to the autobahn and other German driving customs.
- Language – While German is the official language of Germany, many people speak English, especially in major tourist areas. However, it can be helpful to learn some basic German phrases and customs to make the most of your trip.
Honeymoon Destinations in Germany
Here is a list of our favorite romantic places in Germany for a destination honeymoon:
Heidelberg is the most romantic place in Germany for many reasons: the chief amongst them being Heidelberg Castle. The ivy-clad Castle is ideal for leisurely strolls and the views from the castle are great. The Castle’s Elizabeth Gate is a beautifully carved stone gate and is associated with tales of historical romance. The town’s Old quarter is picturesque with its cobbled alleys and unique love padlocked ‘Love Stone. The street named ‘Philosopher’s Way’ is a romantic stone paved path that slowly climbs the hills.
Monschau has all the ideal prerequisites for a romantic holiday – a narrow winding river, a fairytale castle, and the old Medieval town area. Monschau is particularly popular in summer when music is in the air and patio seating areas of restaurants are filled with couples. In winter Monshacu is home to a spectacular Christmas Market.
Tubingen has been declared one of the most picturesque towns in Germany by magazines and travel shows. Located in South Germany, this traditional university town is especially romantic in winter months. Neckar riverfront is perfect for a date with views of colorful houses dotting the riverbank. Holderlin’s Tower, a small museum, is quaint and worth a visit. Flower shops can be found in plenty and add charm to the town.
Bamberg is the perfect romantic getaway in Germany. This quaint little town is full of postcard-perfect houses and winding up and down roads and has charming views of the surrounding Bavarian mountains. Bamberg is a UNESCO World Heritage Site mainly due to the area called Little Venice – a strip of buildings that was formerly a fishing village.
Goslar is a historic town located in the Harz Mountains. The historic town center, another German UNESCO World Heritage Site, is very well-preserved with half-timber houses and perfect for a romantic stroll. Goslar’s Imperial Palace is a beautiful Roman architectural monument. The nearby Rammelsberg Ore Mine and the Brockenbahn train journey are the area’s most popular tourist attractions.
Rothenburg ob der Tauber’
No list of romantic honeymoon destinations in Germany can be complete without the walled town of Rothenburg ob der Tauber. It is by far the most popular attraction on the famous Romantic Road and over 2.5 million visitors come to see this fairytale town year round. This town was the setting of Disney’s Pinocchio and served as inspiration for many other movies. The whole town transforms into a Christmas.
Traveling for a honeymoon is a special and exciting experience, as it provides the opportunity for couples to celebrate their love and create unforgettable memories together.
While places like the Bahamas and the Caribbean are popular destinations, Germany should be considered for the culture, adventures and once-in-a-lifetime experience.
