1. Take a trip to the theater
Is there anything more romantic than a trip to the theater? Dress to the nines, grab a drink, and enjoy a stunning show on the biggest stage in the world. The famous Friedrichstadt-Palast will dazzle you as over a hundred artists, dancers, and musicians bring a moving story to life. Sit back, relax, and admire the spectacular costumes and light show.
2. Dine in style under the stars
What better way to set the mood than to take your date for a meal under the stars? Gaze over Berlin’s skyline while enjoying a three-course meal at the Käfer Restaurant. Head to the top of the glass dome of the Reichstag (Germany’s parliament), to soak up some breathtaking views. That is, if you can tear yourselves away from each other’s eyes.
3. Sing in perfect harmony
Put an ear-to-ear grin on your date’s face as you (attempt to) harmonize to ABBA classics like “Dancing Queen”’ at this worldwide-acclaimed musical. Sing along to 22 hits while you feel your own heart skip a beat. And if that isn’t enough entertainment for a loved-up weekend, why not experience the sensational Blue Man Group? This iconic foursome promises a heady mix of music, comedy, art, and science.
4. Pedal through the city
Explore the city on two wheels and see why Berlin is one of the best weekend getaways for couples. Your tour will take you through glitzy Prenzlauer Berg, along Museum Island, and past the Berlin Wall. As you stop for photos next to iconic landmarks (the Brandenburg Gate is a must), your guide will teach you all about the city’s history.
5. Enjoy sights and bites
If sitting together in a restaurant sounds a bit cliché in Europe’s trendiest city, take your culinary experience on the road. Get acquainted with German cuisine on a secret food tour and immerse yourself in delicious tasting sessions in different eateries. From fresh cheeses to classic pastries, and — of course — the famous currywurst, your taste buds will be tantalized.
6. See the city atop an icon
Looking to take your relationship to new heights? Travel 200 meters above street level to the top of the TV tower. It’s a must-see for Berlin visitors and visible from just about anywhere. Added bonus: if you’re short on time, zipping to the top of the TV Tower is a good way to spot Berlin landmarks at once.
7. Channel your inner royal
Enjoy a night parading around like a royal couple in the Baroque splendor of Charlottenburg Palace. Travel back in time with the Berliner Residenz Orchestra as costumed musicians play masterpieces of Frederick the Great’s court. We guarantee the romance (and champagne) will be flowing.
8. Glide along the River Spree
Looking to get to the heart of the city? The most graceful and scenic route has to be a cruise along the river Spree. There’s nothing glamorous (or romantic) about working up a sweat on foot — so opt to glide gently downstream instead. While you float, you’ll see Bellevue Palace, Berlin Cathedral, Museum Island, and more.
9. Say “prost” at Berlin’s Icebar
No trip to Berlin would be complete without experiencing its legendary nightlife. With 24-hour trains running over the weekend, this is truly a city that never sleeps. But where should you start? For novelty fun, head to Icebar. Here, everything (including your glass) is made of ice.
10. Travel through time
When you need a break from running around Berlin, why not time-travel together back to ancient Greece or Egypt? With the all-exhibitions day ticket, you can impress your date with your cultured side as you explore five outstanding museums on Museum Island. Round it all up with a romantic picnic next to the River Spree.
