With Valentine’s Day only a month away, Berlin is one of the most visited cities in Germany and an ideal place for a romantic break. With 916 bridges, the city, like Venice, offers a fairytale backdrop for romantic strolls. Hotel de Rome, a Rocco Forte hotel, is located in the centre of the city and for romantics alike, recommends the following top 10 places to celebrate love.
