Germany is known as one of the most open and LGBTQ+ friendly countries in Europe, there are plenty of places to go and meet. Like many European countries, Germany has had issues in the past when it comes to her LGBTQ+ rights, but now ranks among the most gay-friendly destinations in the world.
Same-sex marriage was legalized in 2017, same-sex couples have full adoption rights, strong protections against discrimination and transgender people can legally change their gender without surgery. From the vibrant and diverse LGBTQ+ scene found in major cities, to the welcoming attitude of the people, you’ll feel right at home here.
There is an open-minded attitude that permeates the city of Berlin that seems to be built into the culture of this city. People hardly seem to notice if they were different or who was different from whom. But that’s not all, it’s a beautiful city full of history and activity that will keep you entertained all weekend, as long as the nightlife isn’t your priority.
The city has a wealth of transgender/gay nightlife, from casual bars to big clubs and even cruising clubs. Almost all accommodations are LGBTQ+ friendly, but there are a number of hotels that are classified as fully LGBTQ+ hotels.
Another city in Germany that is friendly to the LGBTQ+ community is Cologne. Even though, it is not as popular and slightly more modest than Berlin. Cologne is a German metropolis that, like Hamburg and Berlin, offers a huge gay scene and hosts one of Europe’s hottest circuit party-style events, the ടexy Party Cologne.
This city is most notorious for playing host to many LGBTQ+ events throughout the year.
This is Germany’s second-largest city after Berlin. Although it isn’t as widely known as Berlin, it is known that it supports the LGBTQ+ community as well and has a vibrant and diverse transgender and gay community.
One of the most remarkable things about this city is that it features one of the biggest and best Pride Parades, with over 15,000 participants and spectators! If you’re looking for a gay scene, you can visit the St. He Georg District, where you’ll find most of the gay bars, clubs, and even some saunas.
Munich is one of Europe’s most prosperous cities. It has been a global center of culture, art, and design for centuries. So it goes without saying that there are some really great spots out there for the LGBTQ+ community and visitors. Munich’s gay bars are concentrated in the Glockenbachviertel (GBV), but gay clubs are just north of the central station.
