And all that preferably alongside your favorite person. Worldwide, there are dozens of adorable places that not only know how to create a romantic atmosphere, but at the same time act sustainably. Five idyllic winter retreats for consciously traveling love birds can be found here:

Romantic wellness in Dresden

Focus magazine recently presented Einfach schön in Dresden as one of the “7 most beautiful hotels for couples in midst cities”. Completely right! For lovers it is simply beautiful. Constructed with untreated oak wood and jurassic limestone, the loving attention for details is noticeable. The romantic suite with a view of nature is specifically made for lovers. Above the roofs of Dresden, the organic COCO MAT nature bed combination invites you to rest and dream together. Next to the modern designed wellness area, the private Zirbenholzsauna at the “lake house” is a sustainable highlight of romance. With a view on the oxygenated outdoor pool, the small wooden house is the perfect place for romantic time together. Furthermore, the city of Dresden is attractive for a visit. When taking a stroll through the streets and visiting the christmas market, one can spend wonderful hours in pre-Christmassy atmosphere. A perfect place to let the day come to an end is in front of the warming fire place.

Italian Romance at l’Adagio


Italians know how it works with the “amore”. It is a country of adorable villages and hotels with a cuddle factor. In a former oil mill at the heart of Valley Argentinien – the home of the Taggiasce olives – Agriturismo l’Adagio unites sustainability, history and romance. While the exterior wall of the oil mill has been maintained, the inner structure has been sustainably renewed. The furniture is elegant and minimalist in Italian flair, with a natural connection to the four elements. At the latest, when entering the luxurious spa area including sauna, steam bath and whirlpool, you will never want to leave again. Here, exclusively the own cosmetics from the self produced ROI olive oil is used. Pampering in two, please!

Enjoy Wien’s charming atmosphere sustainably


In Austria, the winter can get bitterly cold. The best reason to cuddle, as I would say. Vienna, which has been awarded in international rankings to be the most liveable city, has lots to offer for a short trip with the loved one: romantic walks through the city, following the trails of Sissi and Franz at Schönbrunner castle park; a ride on the famous Ferris wheel; or a shared piece of “Sachertorte” in one of the cute cafés. A dinner above the roofs of this wonderful city rounds off the experience. Only few minutes away from Stephansplatz and Vienna’s Prater, guests of Das Capri experience the whole diversity of Vienna already within the hotels. Every room and every level represents another part of “Vienna’s tales” – the ideal base for a romantic holiday.

Wintry wine delights at the river Mosel


Taking a joint bath , surrounded by candle light. The embodiment of romance! Looking at the picture, the Vital- und Wellnesshotel Zum Kurfürsten offers undisturbed time and space for couples. Lifestyle with a priority for health – this is the recipe for success at the “Kurfürsten”. Here, couples get a chance to forget about everyday life and to concentrate on themselves and each other. While guests can relax in perfect peace, the hotel follows green guidelines in the areas of regional procurement, sustainable energy supply, and natural materials. Together with your partner, you can best relax at the wood stove sauna or the inviting bath tubs at the wellness area. Of course, a glass of the regional wine will complete the romantic experience.
