Spending an hour, afternoon, day, an evening or a weekend with your loved one, always makes you happy, but when you’re looking to add a little romance consider a trip to Hahndorf and the Adelaide Hills.
It doesn’t matter what time of year, Hahndorf is beautiful.
Summer sunsets and balmy nights, dining alfresco and enjoying shopping under the shade of the lush canopy of trees lining Main Street.
Awash with colour, it’s hard to miss the fiery red, bright orange and gold foliage as you arrive into Hahndorf in Autumn. As the cooler nights set in, the trees of South Australia’s historic German town come to life. There’s no doubt about it, the deciduous trees lining the popular historic Hahndorf Main Street over the autumn months are breathtaking.
In spring the Hills are a colourful mix of native wattle and wildflowers and English country gardens separated by lush green rolling paddocks makes for a beautiful experience.
For many, winter in the Adelaide Hills is their favourite time of year. Roaring log fires, delicious local red wine, hearty comfort food, woollen jumpers, beanies and scarves, sleep-ins to the soothing sound of rain, and green rolling hills.
Whatever the season visit Hahndorf and explore the historic village, indulge in the finest of regional food and wine, and visitor experiences.
