I haven’t been on a honeymoon in europe but i spent quite a bit of time there last summer. Don’t stay in a hostel for your honeymoon, they’re fine for budget vacays with your friends but would be weird with your husband. as for other romantic countries, I say Ireland. Its not an obvious choice but its so incredibly beautiful. Go to Gallway and see the Cliffs of Moher and the Irish countryside. Its incredible.

I loved Austria! Salzburg is beautiful and so are the Austrian Alps.

We are going to Greece – but I highly suggest Germany for you.  If not Berlin, then the southern part is gorgeous (Munich – Stuttgart – Garmisch).  Many military bases nearby so you could get discounts for attractions and hotels from the USO office. You can also do day trips to Austria or Switzerland.

I have been to copenhagen.  It is a beautiful city very clean.  I have also been to prague.  Nice city, very laid back, these two places don’t really have anything HUGE that is a “must see” may make your honeymoon feel less rushed and more relaxed.  You know just enjoy time exploring and walking around and going to cafes and stuff.  I have been to greece, and I think it is a very ancient and romantic place.  I would maybe suggest santorini and some other small islands.

I spent a semester in Spain and thought it was soooo romantic. I stayed in Sevilla [southern spain] and LOVED that city. Northern Spain is very different, more quiet, small town feel, but also very beautiful!

If there is one amazing place to go on your honeymoon in Europe is Ireland.  Like the Republic of Ireland.  Its absolutely beautiful there and perfect for a nice intimate honeymoon where you can have fun exploring together.  Don’t do the traditional Italy or Paris or anything, definitely do Ireland.  🙂  You will never regret it!

Prague is one of the most beautiful cities in the world, you can watch some concerts in the beautiful historic churches, more for sightseeing, but it is the most impressive city I have ever seen, the beauty of the city and the buildings are breathtaking

Venice is very romantic with all the canals, very honeymoony, I must have taken 500 photos, I know you said no Italy

Greece is beautiful especially when you go to one of the islands, very picturesque and more loverly and couples oriented, Mikonos is gorgeous

Barcelona is magnificent, very European and has a romantic culture about it

Amsterdam has beautiful canals, but the red light district at night doesnt make it as romantic at night, nice for sightseeing but not as honeymoony

Berlin has some nice buildings, but with the berlin wall and east Germany you can still feel the old history of the cold war, not too romantic, but nice to sightsee

SPAIN!! What a beautiful country. Historically and culturally. Lots of amazing history and great food and nightlife. Spaniards really know how to have fun and they have it all…cosmopolitcan cities, great beaches, etc.

My absolute two favorite cities are Madrid and Malaga.

We LOVE the Greek Islands for a super romantic honeymoon escape! There is so much to do and you can island hop so you can see different places!

A road trip through German wine country and mideval towns could be really fun, or time at an Inn in the Scottish highlands, or beaches in Greece or Croatia, or being cozy in the Alps in Switzerland or Austria, or Portugal…

Sooo many places to go!
