February 14th is universally known as the day of love, an occasion for people to come together with their partners to celebrate their relationships among heart-shaped chocolates and flowers.

You might ask, why celebrate such a romantic holiday on St. Valentine’s day? Well, that’s because the saint is regarded as the protector of the lovers. There are actually two different Valentines the tradition springs from, both dating back to the Roman Empire: the first one was said to protect those in love and guide them towards marriage; the second one is famous because he was executed for celebrating the wedding of a christian young woman and a pagan young man.

Taking inspiration from these ancient love stories, in modern times as well people have started celebrating their relationships in a way that would connect them to Saint Valentine. Couples all around the world have romantic dinners to honor the feelings that tie them together and Berlin is no different… which is why we’re here!
