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. Need more ideas?

Lots of kisses,
