Thinking of Hamburg, romance doesn’t click straight to mind first – the wide, open spaces and the waters are a calming and wonderful background for lovely hours for two. Even if the city is more known for the great nightlife in the pubs and bars of Reeperbahn – The most sinful mile, there are many places in Hamburg where you can spend a romantic evening with your partner. Hamburg has more canals than Venice and a boat trip on these waterways is sure to get you in a pleasant mood, going through the harbor is too a great experience for the couple. Several suppliers near the Landungsbruken S-Bahn nad U-Bahn station provide transportation for you and your loved one to travel through the canals of Speicherstadt, to the town hall and back again to the port. It’s an hour-long journey and when the weather is lovely, the best option is to take a larger, open-deck boat to have the finest sun-bathing sessions. Hamburg having so many canals, it’s an understood thing that it has plenty of bridges too. Many lovers leave their love locks on the railing of these bridges. A special and popular place among the locals is the pedestrian bridge that goes through the stop at Landungsbrucken. Locks dangling in all colors and shapes, with the lovers’ names and dates. Taking a walk through the park is a nice way to end your day in Hamburg. Planten un Blomen is a humongous area, bursting with colorful flowers and water systems in the middle of the city center.
Illuminated with cute little lights all through the park, it gives a surreal look in the starlit evenings. There are even water-light concerts happening every evening in the summer, the picture-perfect place to take a break and have a little you moment. The park being artfully designed by the Japanese with the bass drum is specifically worth watching. The Alster being a 160-hectare lake in the inner area of the magnificent villas and lush green parks, it’s a sight for sore eyes. On warm, sunny days you can row and paddle all you want on the water and even throw out some bread for the ducks. You can easily rent out a boat as there are several rentals around, mostly near the Jungfernstieg stop. In winter, when the cold winds strike in full force, the Alster freezes over and it becomes one of the biggest ice rinks in the whole city, where you can ice skate all you want with your lover and have a lovely romantic moment, snowflakes falling all around. Another nice way to keep things interesting is to visit a restaurant and eat all you want. Haerlin is a gourmet French cuisine diner. Fresh flowers and a candle-lit dinner will for sure get her happy and a romantic environment will arise. The food is freshly made and you can choose from the menu with seasonal products. Everything is perfect here, first-class delicacies await you, from the breadbasket to the sweet-savory macarons. All in all, it’s a wonderful option to make your mind to come here to spend time with your significant other.
