Berlin, Germany

Packed with energy and edge, Berlin is a city that’s undeniably cool. Its past sits—literally—alongside its present: The Berlin Wall is a reminder of the city’s history, but the graffiti art that now covers it has become symbolic of social progress. Check out the modern art galleries, classic pubs, and don’t skip the legendary nightlife at world-famous clubs like Berghain. Science lovers shouldn’t miss the Weltzeituhr (world time) Clock, topped by a model of the solar system, and history buffs will want to snag a seat at the historic Zur Letzten Instanz, a 16th-century restaurant that was frequented by Napoleon and Beethoven.

A guide to queer Berlin

Berlin is one of the world’s most open-minded cities. Its thriving alternative scene invites people to be their most authentic selves—the queer community included. As a queer writer and activist who visits often, I can confirm that this intersectional culture is what makes the city unique. Here are my favourite LGBTQ+ spots in Berlin, both day and night.
  • Schöneberg
    75
    Schoneberg is Berlin's very own gay-borhood. You’ll find many queer bars and fetish stores (if that's your thing) centered around Nollendorfplatz square. (Even the overground U Bahn station here is illuminated in rainbow colours.) In July, this is also the launching point of Christopher Street Day, Berlin's famed gay pride celebration and parade.
  • Schwules Museum
    125
    Located in a former printing factory, Schwules Museum is a vibrant cultural space dedicated to LGBTQ+ history, art, and culture. Focussed on queer life in all its facets, the museum showcases works by queer artists and offers a unique lens into the struggles and triumphs of the queer community.
  • Monument to Homosexuals Persecuted Under National Socialist Regime
    204
    Set in Tiergarten, near the iconic Brandenburg Gate, this poignant monument stands as a testament to the atrocities committed against homosexuals by the Nazi regime. The cube-shaped memorial has a window where visitors can see a video loop of same-sex couples kissing, a quiet yet powerful tribute to those who suffered. Unlike other memorials, this one is not usually thronged by tourists, offering a more reflective experience.
  • Mobel Olfe
    3
    Tucked between graffiti-streaked walls and neon signage, Möbel-Olfe hardly hints at its past life as a humdrum furniture store. Today, this bar-slash-nightclub is an unmissable temple of Berlin's queer and artistic spirit, with fixtures designed by some of the city's most prolific artists and a creative drink menu. Thursdays are my favourite time to visit, but a heads up—it gets particularly steamy with bodies pressed against the windows and dancing to the electronic beats. Fridays are dedicated to trans and non-binary folks.
  • Berghain
    981
    Berghain is more a rite of passage than a mere club, it’s a mythical beast where the rules for entry are as enigmatic as Mona Lisa's smile. Here, time dissolves and identities blur into a dizzying spell of strobe lights, thundering bass, and intoxicating freedom. Tip: There’s a strict stress code, so ditch the flowery duds and embody your inner leather-lover, you may be refused entry otherwise.
  • KitKatKlub
    308
    The Kit Kat Club is Berlin’s hedonistic haven, a seductive oasis of liberation in a world increasingly boxed in by rules and judgments. Here, the only commandments are carved in techno beats and lights. The weirder and funkier you are, the more you will fit in—so let your freak flag fly.
