Gay Munich Travel Guide
Gay Munich Travel Guide: Beer, bratwursts, traditional costumes, and sporting ambitions – the Bavarian capital Munich as the third-largest German city has many characteristics for which Germany is famous. Even if the German state of Bavaria is one of the politically more conservative federal states, Munich has become a well-known and popular place to live for the LGBTQ + community, and not just recently. The gay movement began to secure a permanent place in Munich as early as the 1950s, which of course was a very positive and progressive development not only for gay men but also for the entire LGBTQ+ community. In the past few years, the Bavarian capital has secured the reputation of being one of the most liveable cities in the whole world, not only because of its exceptionally low crime rate.
But without its breweries and beer halls, such as the Hofbräuhaus, which opened in 1589, the annual major events such as the Oktoberfest, or a traditional white sausage, Munich would not be Munich after all. The cityscape of the administratively independent southern German city is also characterized by centuries-old buildings such as the Marienkirche, the neo-Gothic New Town Hall, or Nymphenburg Palace, as well as numerous world-famous museums. And of course, there is a lively LGBTQ+ community in Munich, which organizes one of the biggest CSD and Pride events in Germany every year. Everything you need to know for a Munich gay city trip to the Bavarian capital can be found in this Munich travel guide for a couple of men traveling!
