Berlin's nightlife still echoes the years when the city was the first and most shining beacon of tolerance, in the late 1920s and early 1930s. Nowadays there are two important gay neighborhoods in the districts of Schöneberg and Kreuzberg (both in the western part of Berlin). Most of the gay hotels, bars, cafes and shops in Berlin are located in the Schöneberg district which had dance halls for men already back in the 1920s. Explore this fascinating intercultural city with a private guide.
Berlin is the queer capital of Europe and has been a pioneer of gay and lesbian rights since the late 19th century. During this tour, you will explore Berlin’s gay neighborhoods with your gay/lesbian guide.
Get to know Schöneberg, home of Marlene Dietrich and chronicled by Christopher Isherwood and Otto Dix. Visit the Eldorado, one of Berlin’s oldest gay and transvestite bars. Visit a memorial to the homosexuals persecuted by the Nazis and find out how openly queer and transgendered individuals found assistance. Then continue with public transportation to the vibrant neighborhood of Kreuzberg to get a feel of what life is like today for gay individuals in Berlin. Find out how queer figures from the Prussian King Frederick the Great to openly gay mayor Klaus Wowereit have shaped the history of Berlin, a city which still believes a “kiss-in” to be the best form of protest. The tour finishes near the Gay Museum. After the tour enjoy a delicious Beer tasting together with a typical Brezel salty bread.
