About Gay Berlin
Gay Berlin - Travel Gay GuideRead more about Gay Berlin
Berlin was hailed as the gayest city on earth in the 1920s. It has reclaimed its crown in recent years. Other major cities may have big gay scenes but nowhere can quite rival Berlin. It has the most hedonistic gay scene in the world. Berlin takes pride in its anything-goes culture and that is reflected in its gay cruise clubs, gay saunas, clubs and bars. Berlin’s nightlife makes London’s and New York’s seem tame.
Schöneberg is the main hub of Berlin’s gay scene. It’s packed with bars and clubs. You’ll also find a big gay scene in Kreuzberg / Friedrichshain – home to the legendary Berghain. Next to the Berghain you’ll find Laboratory, the most notorious gay cruise club in the world. Berlin’s gay scene is fun but it can be quite extreme. There are more low key gay bars in Berlin, such as Heile Welt if you’d like a more chilled experience. But if you’re looking for something more then Berlin is the place to be.
