Berlin is home to one of Europe’s most thriving gay scenes, and is considered the number one gay spot in Germany. The city is always on the go and provides the most diverse offerings for the LGBT crowd. No matter what scene you’re into, you will find your place in Berlin.
As with any major city, Berlin has specific districts that are known to be a little gayer than the others. Because of the city’s large LGBT diversity, Berlin has several main gay districts, each with their own flare, that you can hit up for a fun and safe time.
Berlin’s most popular and diverse gay district. Its always party time here and its home to some of Europe’s largest LGBT events. All scenes and fetishes are welcome!
Another of Berlin’s more established gay districts. Kreuzberg is home to the popular Schwules Museum (Gay Museum) and the oldest gay bar in Berlin, Schwuz.
Prenzlauer Berg, Friedrichshain and Mitte
In recent years, Berlin’s gay scene has found its way into new areas as the fall of the wall brought change throughout the city.
Prenzlauer Berg caters to a more trendy and wealthy crowd and could be considered a more family-friendly spot to visit. Hipsters are welcomed too.
Friedrichshain and Mitte have both established themselves as having a lively gay scene. With Friedrichshain being popular with tourists, the crowd is quite diverse.
