What comes to mind when you think of a romantic weekend getaway? Cosying up next to a crackling fire with a glass of red wine? Waking up to the sight of endless green, rolling hills? It sounds like every couple’s dream.
Now, here’s the cool thing. You don’t have to travel hours away from the city to have this type of charming experience. If you’re looking for a loved-up, low-stress weekend in Adelaide, Hahndorf is it.
If you’re a Radeladian, you probably associate Hahndorf with charming, artisan stores, beer steins and strawberry picking. Being a German-themed town, it’s got cheese shops, truffle stores, pubs and lots of hearty food. But there’s another side of it, too.
We know you love wine because you live in South Australia (and what’s a weekend without a good drop). Experience how the Adelaide Hills do their wine by visiting The Lane Vineyard. With the grapes grown in their own backyard, it doesn’t get more local than this. Enjoy a delicious meal with local produce, then give in to the lazy Sunday vibe on the deck that takes in a famous Hills view.
Continue to adventure through your tastebuds, checking out one of the local distilleries. Ambleside Distillers has that Mum and Pop feel, with its shed turned distillery on an expansive Hills property.
While this region, heck the entire state, is praised for its food and wine, there’s plenty of ways to work off all that food. Make sure you check out our article on the ultimate weekend in the Adelaide Hills for tips.
But, especially for the two of you, pack a picnic and go on a bike ride, plan an early morning yoga session and enjoy a couple’s massage before booking a private, candle-lit dinner. Think about what you like to do together and make a weekend of it.
