Just in time for Valentine’s Day, we came across Zitronenstraße – a project that highlights Berlin’s most romantic spots such as bars, cafes, restaurants and parks on an interactive map. Although the town is full of bars and cafes, sometimes you still end up clueless as to where can you take your date. This is especially common during Winter, when even the most tenacious Berliners have to seek shelter from the cold. We’ve asked Valerio – the creator of the romantic places in Berlin map – to share his 7 favorite bars that he thinks are perfect for a romantic date.


A perfect first stop on a night out, this small and cozy bar presents the classic Berlin attitude. It’s a good place to have a beer or a glass of good Italian wine while chilling on an old couch.  Who knows what might happen next?
