Pretty little towns full of medieval houses and narrow lanes, palaces, parks and gardens for majesty and magnificence, or secluded sandy beaches along the coast.
Germany offers romantic destinations to suit all tastes – the perfect choice if you’re
planning a dream honeymoon or a holiday for two.
So you want to begin your new life together in surroundings fit for a King, then
spend your honeymoon in one of the Sightsleeping Hotels in Bavaria. Thirty-four
hotels from medieval Rabenstein Castle, which overlooks a valley on a mountain
plateau, to Pommersfelden Palace in all its 18th century splendour, have teamed
up under this banner. Wake up together in a historical palace, then go for a post-
breakfast stroll in the surrounding park – can you think of a better way to begin
married life? Grace and grandeur can also be found in Saxony, and particularly in
Dresden. A suitably spectacular hotel is easily found in this baroque city and you
can time your visit to coincide with the Semper Opera Ball in one of the world’s
most famous opera houses. Even sightseeing in Dresden has a touch of romance
about it. The horse-drawn carriage rides will make you feel like a prince and
Less extravagant but equally elegant are Germany’s ‘Romantik’ hotels, which
number more than one hundred. These small, privately run hotels offer modern
luxuries and impeccable service in historical settings – from a lovingly restored
medieval house in the UNESCO World Heritage town of Quedlinburg to charming
city residences in northern Germany.
Many of these hotels also double as venues for the big day itself. Can you think
of anything more romantic than getting married at a castle or palace and holding
your reception there afterwards? Different regions cater for different needs, some
of them highly specific. In northern Germany, for example, couples can tie the
knot in a lighthouse, and other places to exchange vows include flower-filled
parks, beaches, ships, a windmill and even a cable car to a backdrop of panoramic
views. Heide-Park in Soltau gives a new meaning to having butterflies in your
stomach. ‘Honeymoon’ rollercoaster rides at the theme park are a common sight
and provide a white-knuckle start to your new life as a couple!
Or why not spend your big holiday together in one of Germany’s cities? Musicals,
theatre, concerts, exhibitions and the fantastic nightlife give you plenty of
opportunity to enjoy quality time as a couple.
