The Best Places to Honeymoon in September

Germany

Although the name suggests it happens it October, Oktoberfest actually starts in September. The dates for 2019 are September 21 to October 6. Oktoberfest is Germany’s largest beer festival held annually in Munich, the capital of Bavaria. If you and your partner enjoy beer, good company, meeting tons of new people and feasting on pretzels and pork knuckle, this is exactly where you need to be come late September.

French Polynesia

There’s really no bad time of the year to stay in an overwater bungalow in French Polynesia but if we’re going to get picky, September is one of the best times. It’s the sweet spot between high tourist season in the summer and when the rainy season hits in November.

September in Bora Bora is the perfect month between the end of tourist season and before the rainy season.

Napa Valley, California, USA

For a relaxing and romantic honeymoon in the US in September, look no further than California for the annual grape harvest in Napa Valley. We love Napa at any time of the year but September is in the middle of harvesting season which means you’ll get the special treat of watching wine grapes get crushed into their perfect form: wine.

Hungary

A hidden gem of Europe that is often overlooked is more than deserving of your September honeymoon. Budapest is all the charm we love of Europe but budget friendly. On the banks of the Danube River, Budapest has some of Europe’s best architecture and ruins to explore. Budapest also has some of the world’s most luxurious public baths where you can wander from room to room to find the pool that fits your temperature desires best, much like “Goldilocks and the Three Bears.”

Széchenyi Thermal Bath in Budapest offer a luxurious start to your honeymoon in Hungary.
