    Germany's most gay-welcoming city, with its openly gay mayor, Berlin has no shortage of friendly hotels—from conventional to kinky. This swinging gaytropolis also boasts a jam-packed calendar of year-round gay events and lifestyle celebrations.

    Where to Stay

    Schoneburg is perhaps Berlin's gayest district, with dance halls dating back to the 1920s. Motzstrasse, Fuggerstrasse, and Nollendorf Platz also boast a high concentration of gay cafes, bars, and saunas.

    Other gay hotspots include Mitte, Prenzlauer Berg, Kreuzberg, and Tiergarten.

    Things to Do

    • Visit Berlin's Schwules Museum, an institution dedicated to showcasing homosexual history, art, and culture.
    • Retrace history at the Brandenburg Gate and the Wall—two of Berlin's most famous sights.
    • Sunbathe nude in the huge public park of Tiergarten—the grassy lawns and light woodland just southwest of Siegessaule (Victory Column) are a notorious gay playground.
    • Hop on Bus 100—an affordable, easy alternative to the traditional tour. This bus takes you to the Zoological Garden, Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church, the Tiergarten, and much more!
    • Lose yourself in retail wonderland of KaDeWe (Kaufhaus des Westens), Central Europe's largest department store.


    Spend the morning fashion shopping at Prenzlauer Berg and lunch at a mood-lit café. Take an afternoon stroll through the Gruenwald, the city's huge urban forest, followed by a couples' spa treatment. Then how about an opera and a late-night dinner before tiptoeing off to your cozy room?


    Bars never close and Berlin never rests! From 1920s-style cabaret to a thriving leather and rubber scene, there are hundreds of gay bars, fetish clubs, and cafes, plus a strong gay presence at many straight venues. Most of the gay hotels, bars, cafes and shops in Berlin are located in the Schöneberg district.
