Winter is the perfect time for snuggling up, getting cosy and nestling into some romance. While Berlin isn’t exactly known for romance, the capital of hedonistic club culture has a softer side, and amid the Brutalist architecture and thumping techno, there are a number of wonderful places to warm up and date during the colder months. Here are the cosiest date ideas for Berlin’s winter.

Christmas Market

Get festive at a Christmas market

As winter’s chill sets in, Berlin keeps warm with festive and traditional Christmas Markets and glühwein’s potent hug. Dotted around the city, these markets have been a German tradition since the middle ages. With a variety of stalls selling handcrafted gifts, traditional German food and festive drinks, these markets bring together Christmas joy and German customs. They’re an ideal place to wander round with a lover for the perfect winter date.

Bar, Cafe, Pub Grub

There’s nothing like a cosy bar with a view, and Klunkerkranich bar, atop the Neukölln Arcadian, has one of the best views around. Known for its summer parties, the bar becomes a lot more homely in the winter. Serving warming glühwein and offering stunning views, it’s a great spot to escape to for an intimate winter date.

Enjoy a cosy movie date

Berlin is filled with amazing, unique and arty cinemas or kinos. In the chill of winter, they offer the perfect refuge for a classic date-night favourite of catching the latest flick and enjoying some salty popcorn and beer.
