Oktoberfest love: This is probably one for the boys. Germany is known around the world for the 16-day traditional Bavarian fair, Oktoberfest, held in Munich every year, so it could make a fun and unique proposal. Wander the fair's stalls and as you approach one (of the many) bars selling beer point out a special barrel with Will you marry me? printed on the side. Enjoy the moment and toast your engagement with a tankard. Fairytale romance: For a fairytale setting look no further than Neuschwanstein Castle near Fassen. The palace, which is rumoured to have inspired the world-famous Disney castle, would make for a beautiful, romantic proposal location. For a simple but unforgettable moment take your fiance-to-be to the highest tower for a proposal with a view. Lucky start: One German wedding tradition is for the couple to hold a Polterabend the evening with lots of broken Porcelain where friends and family bring kitchenware to smash and wish them luck in their marriage.
