Know More about this tour

Explore the gay neighborhoods of Berlin on this 3.5-hour guided walking tour. Since the 19th century, Berlin has been a pioneer of gay and lesbian rights in Germany, creating Siegessaeule, the first lesbian magazine, and celebrating the annual Gay Pride event. Your professional guide will tell you everything about that time and how life has changed for the city's LGBTQ community.

Start your walking tour in the Schneberg area and visit Eldorado, one of Berlins oldest and most famous trans* bars that once featured regular performances of Marlene Dietrich.

Find out how openly gay and transgendered people found assistance from the sexologist Magnus Hirschfeld, whose Institute for Sexual Science was shut down in during World War II in 1933 and its library destroyed during the Nazi book burning. Then, visit the Memorial to homosexuals persecuted under nazism.

Continue your tour walking through the Tiergarten, the citys best-known gay meeting spot hidden behind the Berlin wall. Find out how LGBTQ figures have shaped the history of Berlin from the Prussian King Friedrich the Great to todays openly gay Mayor Klaus Wowereit.
