Where to go in Europe for a very short romantic trip?

Since you want to go to a new country, I would suggest Munich. Prague is fine, but tends to be a bit overrun with tourists for a good part of the year. Somewhere in Spain might also fit the bill, say Segovia or Toledo, both easily reached by train from Madrid. I haven't been to Vienna, so I can't compare with the other places I've mentioned, but it does sound romantic. Since you only have a few days, I'd skip places that would take a long time to get to.

You can look for flights on www.skyscanner.net .

Gardyloo -- thanks for your mention of checking the airport website to find nonstop destinations served.

I didn't know one could do that and will find it very useful in future from my home airport = thank you!

Barcelona and Seville, for two places, are just as crowded as Prague. In fact, probably more so in the Fall.

I love Barcelona but have never thought of it as "romantic." I agree some might use that adjective for Prague or Seville.

I vote for Prague.

Yes, Prague is a good choice, but be aware that you'll be in company of the big crowds. Some parts in the countryside of Lithuania are worth exploring and enjoying as well.

I'm with nytraveler and would choose Alsace if you don't go the Prague route.
But first see which cities are a direct flight from Glasgow.

Hands down: Canaves Oia Suites on Santorini, Greece. Have dinner at Ambrosia. Easily Number One for us after 50 years of European travel. You'll love it.

Romance means different things to different people. But Paris is a "safe" answer to your question.

Other choices - Salzburg and day trips in Salzkammergut region. Venice. Florence with one day trip to a smaller Tuscan town.

Heck, I found Cotswolds romantic and charming in end-Nov in zero temp simply because of my sweetheart being with me. You're guaranteed a romantic trip simply by having your husband of ten years holding your hand. Enjoy.

My advice would be to go to Barcelona, Porto or Lisabon, all beautiful and romantic places to visit. Barcelona is a unique country famous for its authentic cousine and Gaudi architecture that is remarkable. Lisabon and Porto have a unique energy and landscapes in which you would truly enjoy. Sicilia is also a beautiful Europe destination to visit.Even though most people are thinking of it as an ideal summer destination, I would most certainly recommended visiting in April, May, September and October and avoiding the top of the summer season (June, July and August) because of big crowds and high temperatures that are not ideal for sightseeing.

I would say Switzerland. Though 4 days is lesser to enjoy the beauty of this place but it is surely a very romantic country..Go to Geneva- stay in Montreux take a day trip to Gstaad
Or from Zurich- stay in Interlaken or Grindelwald and take a day trip to Jungfrau.
