10 Tips for Special Romance on Valentine’s Day in Berlin

Use Valentine’s Day in Berlin for a special romantic experience with the woman or man of your dreams.

Rose Dream

It is and remains the classic declaration of love through a flower: the rose. And nowhere else in Berlin can you find it in such variety as at Rosentraum am Ku’damm, the big shop for the flower of love.

  • Where: Kurfürstendamm 162/163, 10709 Berlin, Wilmersdorf, U7 Adenauerplatz.
  • Open: Mon-Sat 7am-8pm.
  • Tel. 030 89 40 81 81

Television Tower

According to psychologists, dating supposedly goes better at high points. The reason: the excitement because of the height transfers to the romantic situation. The highest place in Berlin is, of course, the platform of the TV tower and if the view is good, you have a really breathtaking view of the city from here.

However, it’s best to book tickets in advance if you want to avoid long waits, especially if you’re also planning a romantic meal at the Sphere platform restaurant.

  • Where: Panoramastraße 1A, D-10178 Berlin, Mitte, S3, S5, S7, U5, U8, U9 Alexanderplatz.
  • Open: Nov-Feb 10am-2pm, Mar-Oct 9am-2pm.

Alternatively, you can reserve a seat in the Skykitchen. Here, the Urberliner star chef Alexander Koppe presents his exquisite new interpretations of Berlin cuisine to guests in a dignified ambience.

As the name of the restaurant suggests, you can also look out over the rooftops of the city from high above, namely from the 12th floor of the Andel’s Hotel.

  • Where: at Vienna House Andel’s Berlin, Landsberger Allee 106, 10369 Berlin, S8, S9, S41, S42 Landsberger Allee.
  • Open: Tue-Sat 6pm-2pm, Sun 11am-3pm.

Trip to Peacock Island

Peacock Island is arguably one of the most romantic places in all of Berlin. When the sun shines on Valentine’s Day, it is an ideal destination for an excursion for lovers.

With its picturesque little castle and 67-hectare landscape park, the idyllic island in the Havel is rightly a UNSECO World Heritage Site.

On Valentine’s Day, the Valentine’s Day Special Crime Theatre takes place here. The show including a 4-course menu costs €69 per person.

Ghost – The Musical

The musical fans among you are in luck: for the occasion, the musical Ghost – Message from Sam is also playing in Berlin on Valentine’s Day. As in the film of the same name, it is about nothing less than the power of true love, which can even call the dead back into the realm of the living.

Valentine’s Day Comedy

If you prefer comedy on stage and are rather slightly ironic about Valentine’s Day anyway, the Anti Valentines Day at Bämeräng is just the right event for you.

This rock pub rolls out the red carpet for couples with style on Valentine’s Day from 20:00 and offers a biting comedy programme to celebrate the day. The alternative event for all couples who have little use for classic romance.
