Romance for two can come in several forms; Germany's backcountry envelops you in the enchantment from centuries past with its cobblestone medieval streets, horse-drawn carriages and fairytale castles. The country's cities then provide a vibrant treasure chest of exquisite attractions, all while celebrating the opulence of culture and heritage. This couple's itinerary blends the two realms, offering two weeks that captures the heart of Germany.
Frankfurt – Renaissance Introductions to Germany
Initial impressions of Frankfurt do not do justice to the city's history. The country's financial capital is full of skyscrapers that imbue a futuristic innovation, one of sharp, clean lines and glass-fronted excess. Frankfurt has been around since before the Romans arrived; the streets still hide so many treasures. One of them is your hotel, a beautiful five-star Renaissance villa, an ode to a period of history that always embraced romance. You'll be greeted at the airport and transferred to the hotel, where the afternoon and evening is at your leisure. A welcome romantic dinner at the hotel's restaurant is included, a chance to absorb the beauty of the building and your surroundings.

Germany's landscape offers an array of pleasures. There's the old-world atmosphere of cobblestones and castles, of medieval town squares and vineyards cascading across river valleys. Then you find the cities, rich in architectural and artistic treasures, delighting in a splendor that moves across the eras. This unique luxury itinerary combines the two sides to Germany, taking you through the backcountry to the opulence of its fabled cities. There's always surprise on the way, from spa indulgence in the Black Forest to 18th-century palaces surrounded by private gardens. Enhancing the journey is a selection of the country's finest accommodation; converted castles, spa hotels, Renaissance heritage buildings, and the boutique charm found in a town from the Middle Ages.
Begin in Frankfurt, a city that symbolizes the contrasting styles of Germany. History hides beneath futuristic skyscrapers as you spend a few nights in the Renaissance beauty of the city's finest five-star hotel. Spend a day on a cruise for two, journeying along the River Rhine, absorbing medieval castles that stand above a patchwork of vineyards and flowers. Then move on to the Black Forest, a haven of spas and culinary charms. Next, it's along the foothills of the Alps, to medieval towns and the castles from fairytales. Travel by horse and carriage to the castle that inspired Sleeping Beauty, and immerse yourself in the forested hills of a Bavarian spa resort. There are extra treats along the way, like private dining in a pudelstein hut and traveling in an Aagland carriage.
Munich is a city of palace and gardens, where opulent expressions of history combine with the cozy atmosphere of the old taverns and halls. The romantic road continues on day eight, stopping at the Gothic and gabled wonders of Rothenburg, then onwards with a sparkling wine picnic lunch. Dresden is enveloped in Baroque treasures and has been beautifully restored over the last few centuries. The luxury itinerary ends in Berlin, a capital city that's easy to explore together. Two tours reveal two distinctive eras from history and the itinerary is designed to provide lots of free time to take in Germany just for two.
