Our Berlin Gay Travel Guide – Germany

Germany’s capital city is with over 3,5 Millionen inhabitants the biggest city in Germany and the biggest German-speaking city in the world. The metropolis is located in the eastern part of the European country.  Berlin played a vital role in Europe’s history, especially after World War II when the city was divided by the Allies into two city parts separated by the “Wall” from 1961 on in a western and eastern part. Germany and therefore Berlin celebrated its reunion in 1989 which can also be considered as the beginning of the end of the Soviet Union. Both city parts are growing together ever since, developing a unique social and cultural heritage. Today, Berlin is one of 16 independent German federal city-states with multiple city centers like Potsdamer Platz, Alexanderplatz, Kurfürstendam, and Friedrichstraße as well the city’s river Spree. Some of the most famous city parts of Berlin are Berlin Mitte, Berlin Kreuzberg, Berlin Schöneberg, Berlin Friedrichshain, Berlin Tiergarten, and Berlin Neukölln. Our favorite Instagram worthy sights of Berlin are the Brandenburger Tor, the Reichstag building, Alexanderplatz with the famous TV Tower and world time clock, the Museum Island and the city park Tiergarten with the victory column “Siegessäule”.
