Gay Berlin: Where to go for brunch, dinner and drink

Gay Berlin

Berlin – a truly liberal and diverse city

Historical, diverse, cool,  liberal, contemporary, cultural are just some of the adjectives with we could describe Berlin. It’s more likely you will see a man in a leather skirt during your morning metro ride than a man in a suite, that’s why we love colorful capital of Germany.

Berlin has several exciting gay neighborhoods to check out: Schöneberg, Kreuzberg, Neukölln, Prenzlauer Berg and Friedrichshain. We are bringing you the Berlin neighborhood gay guide. Keep reading  and find out what to see and which places to visit in these trendy gay Berlin neighborhoods.

#1 Schöneberg

The main gay neighborhood in Berlin is Schöneberg. It is the heart of Berlin’s LGBTQ gay community, back in 1897 the world’s first-ever LGBTQ organisation the “Scientific-Humanitarian Committee” was founded right there.

In Schöneberg you can find the oldest gay bars like Tom’s Bar, as well as hip bars like Prinzknecht, Heile Welt and Hafen. After the night out we recommend you to stop by the one of these cafes: Romeo & Romeo, Cafe Kawil Kunde or Cafe Berio. When it comes to the lunch/dinner you should not miss Fritz & Co and Sissi.

#2 Kreuzberg

Kreuzberg is the other main gay district of Berlin, the big rival from the Schöneberg. After the fall of the Berlin Wall Kreuzberg started to grow and attracting the cool kids. Today Kreuzberg has a large LGBTQ community living there and amazing gay bars like Möbel Olfe, Roses,  BarbieBar, coffee and snack spot like Südblock and a gay museum too, the Schwules (Gay) Museum.
