Three words to describe our visit to gay Berlin – liberating, insane and gay; so very gay! Berlin probably eats other gay cities for breakfast!
There is an attitude of open mindedness across Berlin that seems to be embedded into its culture. People don’t seem to care if you are different and we really felt a sense of ‘anything goes’ and ‘you do you’.
Not only that, but it is a beautiful city, steeped in history and activities to keep you entertained all weekend unless the nightlife takes you first.
During our visit, we were here for Berlin Pride hosted by visitBerlin to learn everything about what gay Berlin had to offer!
In this guide we will provide you with the best gay bars in Berlin, clubs, gay and gay friendly hotels as well as some practical advice for your trip!
Let’s get started…
Gay Area of Berlin
You could feasibly say the entire city, however the ‘official’ gay area of Berlin is Schöneberg whose LGBT community dates back to the 1920s!
However, unlike most cities, you will still find a gay scene elsewhere including Kreuzberg/Friedrichshain and Prenzlauer Berg/Berlin Mitte.
