Travel Tips for your Honeymoon in Germany

Romantic Getaways

How does romance come to mind when you picture Germany? Think of watching the sunset over the Alpine peaks at Neuschwanstein Castle, taking in the breathtaking scenery on a river cruise past historical castle ruins and vineyards, driving along the Romantic Road through enchanting villages in a convertible or walking barefoot along the white sandy beaches of Germany's Baltic Coast hand in hand with your better half. Germany can be as romantic as you want it to be and leaves room for adventure.

River Cruising

Cruising along a river might be one of the most romantic honeymoon activities in Germany. Ranging from a few hours to several days or even weeks, German river cruises cater to every desire. There is a wide variety of German river landscapes to experience, such as the Middle Rhine Valley, which forms part of the UNESCO World Heritage or the Moselle River Valley nestled in vineyards and numerous other German rivers. While the character is always changing, the romantic atmosphere stays the same. Enjoy your honeymoon on a journey, following the flow of the water, peacefully floating down the rivers.

If you don't want to miss out on white sandy beaches during your honeymoon, Germany can present an eminent choice of pristine, mile long beaches on both, Baltic Sea and North Sea Coast. Especially in the fall, the long stretches of sand invite couples to a romantic stroll along the deserted seashore. Choose between luxurious hotels, charming bed and breakfasts and private holiday apartments, there is always the right accommodation that suits your needs and exceeds your imaginations of the honeymoon of your dreams.

Self-Drive Tours in Germany

Whether you favor themes such as wine, castles, cultural or natural highlights - each scenic road adds its little spark to your overall honeymoon experience. Visualize yourselves cruising down tree lined alleys, stopping by romantic castles, picnicking on a lush Alpine meadow and at the end of the day sampling first class wines. Choose one or combine several routes to create an individual itinerary that caters to what your heart desires. Most routes are also accessible for cyclists, so feel free to start your honeymoon with a green and active approach.
