Our favourite romantic German holiday destinations

Germany isn’t at the top of people’s list when they imagine a romantic trip for two. And yet the country has a lot of beautiful corners that are perfect for those in search of a romantic holiday, from dramatic coastlines in the north to sweeping vineyards in the south.

One of the perks of running The Staycation Collection is that I get to visit a lot of the properties (to check they’re up-to-standard!). I travel alone, with friends (and sometimes their dogs!), and with my partner, which allows me to get a true feel for which properties suit different needs.

After a year and a half of date nights at home (which, let’s face it, just aren’t the same as proper evenings out together), many couples could use a break to escape their routines together and re-connect with each other. With that in mind, here’s a round-up of some of the most romantic getaways I’ve visited in the past two years.

1. Müritz Water Tower, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern

Why I love it: The effortless blend of modern design with old industrial features.

For fun: Go for a dip in one of the many lakes on your doorstep (I love Badestelle Feisneck); wild swimming doesn’t get better than this.

2. Mosel Chalets, Rheinland-Pfalz

Why I love it: The huge glass windows frame the stunning Mosel landscape, which starts on your doorstep.

For fun: Get a bottle of Riesling from a local wine producer in the village, and sip it on your terrace while watching the stars.

3. Countryside Cottage, Brandenburg

Why I love it: There are just two rooms in the B&B, each with a huge bed nestled under beautiful wooden beams and skylights that overlook treetops.

For fun: Walk some of the Internationaler Kunstwanderweg (International Art Walking Way), which takes you through beautiful forests.

4. Rerik Cabin, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern

Why I love it: These two identical cabins are picture-book-perfect romantic getaways with Scandinavian interiors and wood-burning fires.

For fun: You’re a stone's throw from the dramatic coastline of the Ostsee; pack a picnic and take a long walk along the sand.

5. The Waterworks, Brandenburg

Why I love it: Each apartment is hyper-modern, and some have hanging beds and open fires.

For fun: A stay here includes a free ticket to the local therme, which is wonderful to relax at.
