The so-called Rainbow Kiez is a queer-friendly area since 1920. There are numerous famous queer bars like the Heile Welt or also fetish-themed queer bars like the BULL or the New action. The crowd is mixed. But you won’t find any other place in Berlin with so many queer hot spots! I’m sure that you’ll never experience a more queer pub crawl at any place.
Berlins oldest gay cruising park is located in the city center. There is also a big nudist area during the day for sunbathing. It also features a cruising area which is very popular in the afternoon and after dark. More mature crowd compared to other spots — and, let’s say, coming here is not only a good idea for nature boys ;)
Queer Bar with lots of screens in the seating area where porn movies are playing. Also has a darkroom area for safer sex in the basement. All ages are welcome. Mixed crowd.
Don’t bring your straight friends if they’re not into juicy experiences because this place is totally juicy. Totally. Juicy.
Probably, Berlin’s biggest gay sauna on three (!!!) floors. It features different sauna areas, whirlpools, dark rooms, private cabins, and a massage & spa area.
All ages & body types are so very welcome. You can also just go there to have a good time with your friends. I swear this place will make you sweat more than a bitch on a confessional🥵(and sweating is extremely healthy and good for you, btw).
A real Cruise Club with a dark room which is especially interesting for pup players and leather lovers — so they come here to meet and have a drink. There’s the annual Folsom Europe street festival every September in the area around Prinzknecht Bar which is a gay and lesbian street festival of the leather and fetish scene. This is why the bar is so popular with that scene the whole year round — and with slightly more mature men.
If you always wanted your hottest leather fantasies to become reality you should check out this place as fast as possible. Put on your best leathers and go!
The place to be if you want to party and dance away. Berlin’s pretty much biggest queer club: find three different floors with all the queer sweethearts tunes. Yes to a playlist with Madonna, Lady Gaga, Cher, Ariana Grande! You’ll find 80’s/90’s/2000’s Pop and all the new stuff which is on the charts right now. A younger audience is hanging out here. But as well there’s a German Schlager Party — and the rules allow you to come naked (sometimes but you have the chance). Just in case and to catch the vibe: schlager is a special kind of European feel-good music, the lyrics are mainly about love and romance. Feel it? So yes to parties with the songs of our favorite pop Queens — and meeting some new queer besties. This is your place!
The park features an FKK (we talking nudists, btw) area and cruising in the forest (especially nice if you like more privacy). You can find people who are in the mood for cruising or you can go to one of the Spätis/Kiosks in the area to grab a drink day & night. All types queer come here — mixed crowd. So not only a good place for your raver friends ;)
