Ro­mance Aplenty

Where Berlin - - WELCOME TO BERLIN - SOLVEIG STEINHARDT ED­I­TOR, WHERE BERLIN

What makes love so unique is that it comes in all dif­fer­ent forms and shapes. Even if we of­ten lack the words to de­scribe it, we all know how it feels – and many of us spend our lives chas­ing it. It can be a per­son, a sit­u­a­tion, a be­lief, a song, a piece of art, or a place. And although Berlin is cer­tainly not the most ro­man­tic of cities, many of its cor­ners are im­bued with a his­toric sig­nif­i­cance and sym­bolic beauty that makes them the per­fect back­drop for ro­mance. Take a Sun­day morn­ing at the flea mar­ket sur­rounded by the pretty build­ings of Arkon­aplatz, or a rich break­fast at Potemkin on Vik­to­ria-Luise-Platz in Schöneberg. Or an in-depth ex­plo­ration of the Hack­esche Höfe court­yards, fol­lowed by an even­ing spent ice skat­ing at the Horst-Dohm Eis­sta­dion in Wilmers­dorf. This city can of­fer many ro­mance-in­spir­ing ac­tiv­i­ties, and Fe­bru­ary is the right time of year to ex­press the love you feel to your part­ner, your best friend, or even just your­self.

Lots of kisses,
