Ahhh, romance. It’s in the air. Whether you’re traveling with a new partner or reigniting an old flame, we’ve assembled a list of romantic cities that are sure to bring the romance back into traveling.

1. Heidelberg, Germany

They call it “Romantic Germany” for a reason. Love is in the air in Heidelberg with its Cinderella fairy tale charm. The old town with winding streets, medieval castle-hostels and scenic walks in the nearby vineyards inspires nothing but love and romance. The colors alone are worth the visit to Heidelberg.

4. Kyoto, Japan

Kyoto will sweep you off your feet. Take a charming vintage train ride that runs along the Hozugawa River and winds through the mountains at a deliberately slow pace to afford you the time to take in the scenery.
