Well-appointed riverside accommodations on the grounds of the S.A. Prüm winery.

This newly expanded hotel is set around a secluded courtyard and has a modern café to match its 50 studios and apartments.

The 2007 renovated hotel occupies an 1870's building and has a delightful heated rooftop pool and patio. The hotel's Michelin-starred Restaurant Mark's is open for an elegant Christmas Eve meal of almond-covered venison with cherries and semolina strudel.

Formerly chef de cuisine at Berlin’s trendiest (and tastiest) restaurant, Vau, Florian Löffler traded urban bright lights for a rural retreat in the Feldberg Lake District. Two hours northeast of Berlin, the magical landscape—lakes, forests, sunflower fields—was part of the draw.

The 13th-century fortress is one of the most hauntingly romantic places in Europe.

A mix of business travelers and design-savvy hipsters appreciate the Ku’Damm’s sleek, clean-lined aesthetic.

The 77-room East Hotel, in the city’s rapidly gentrifying red-light district, was created by Jordan Mozer, the Chicago-based interior designer.

The 54-room hotel in the Old Town is decorated with striking black-and-white photography and offers rooms overlooking Cologne's Gothic cathedral.
