Although the celebration of Valentine’s Day isn’t as grandiose in Germany as it may be in other countries, you’ll still find heart shaped candies and teddy bears at your local store. While some believe that true love means celebrating your relationship (or yourself) all year long, there is fun to be had by giving into the indulgent holiday. Whether you’re dating someone new, in a long term relationship, or rolling solo here are a few activities you can partake in:
Table for One
Indulge in the creamiest hot chocolate and richest chocolate brownie your mouth has had the pleasure of tasting at Cafe Katulki in Neukolln. Not only will the drinks warm your belly but the cozy interior and fancy tableware make for an extra treat. Afterwards hop on the U8 to the Babylon Kreuzberg movie theater to witness the final chapter of the Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey drama with Fifty Shades Freed. What Valentine’s Day is complete without bondage?
Before making your sweetheart dinner and stocking your fridge with their favorite libations head to Colorful ChocoWorld at Gendarmenmarkt and custom make them a Ritter Sport bar. Choose from dozens of nuts, fruits, and other ingredients to combine with milk, dark, or white chocolate. A handmade chocolate bar without making a mess in your own kitchen is an easy way to give a sweet gift to your date.
