"To" is a preposition that is used to express direction of movement or actions.


I am walking. --> where to? --> I am walking to school. (direction of movement)


I am giving the book. --> to whom? --> I am giving the book to John. (direction of action, indicates indirect object, John)


Where does this bus go?

This bus goes to Berlin. (movement)


To whom are you taking the sweets?

I am taking the sweets to Grandma Samson. (action)


The use of 'to' with a verb is a unique construction that marks the root form of the verb, i.e. "to walk", "to sing", "to love", etc.
