Here are our top tips and ideas for celebrating Valentine’s Day while you’re living in Germany!

1) Visit your local florist.

Stock up on gorgeous flowers for your sweet or treat yourself! The flowers are incredibly fresh and well priced, especially compared to most stateside prices.

2) Try some wine.

Head to your local grocery or beverage shop and pick up some wine or beer to celebrate Valentine’s in Germany. Again, the prices will floor you compared to the states and it’s the perfect way to celebrate European style!

3) Make a reservation.

Restaurants can get pretty packed during special events, so call or stop by and make a reservation for your special night.  Find a great restaurant near you using the Find-It Guide (click here).

4) Take a romantic walk.

Head to your local pedestrian streets of the closest town or city and wander around, hand in hand.

5) Take to the road!

Jump in the car and just drive. Get a little lost and stop in some cute town for dinner or to shop.

6) Plan for the future!

Sit over dinner or in a romantic cafe and plan a future trip or present then a gift of tickets for an upcoming concert (for listings, click here).

7) Find an event to attend.

Check out the event calendar and find something to do near you!
