Gay Travel

SWEDEN: Is there a gay sauna in Malmö, you might ask? Not exactly. Although many of the local gays consider the Ribersborgs Kallbadhus is THE gay hotspot of the Swedish city – to see and to be seen, and maybe even more, of course. With the monthly event “Queer Kallis”, the traditional house from the late 19th century is finally opening up to the whole LGBTQ+ community, including trans and non-binary sauna fans.

NETHERLANDS: Gay men enjoy a significant amount of social acceptance and freedom in the capital city of the Netherlands – but it has come at the loss of many places and institutions that used to give this city its distinctive gay edges. Nevertheless, there are many places in Amsterdam that still embody the original spirit of the 80s and 90s, and offer experiences that are unique to Amsterdam as a destination. Meeting guys in Amsterdam isn’t hard – but in some places, it’s easier than in others, especially when you’re trying to get laid.

SPAIN: Sitges is a small town about 35km away from Barcelona. It tends to not be on everyone’s radar, which is why mentioning it to the uninitiated usually draws befuddled looks. For many gay men, however, the name Sitges evokes images of sun, sea, and… sex. As one of the gay capitals of Europe, Sitges, located in the south-east of Spain, is one of those rare places where a gay man can feel part of a majority. Whether you like going to the beach, to bars, or just lounge by the pool, you’ll quickly discover the sexual tension hanging in

A Dutch Winter Day Amsterdam Netherlands – The unexpected happened: Finally, after three Winters without almost any snow Amsterdam turned into a winter wonderland. Big snowflakes falling down from the sky covering Dutch bikes, Grachten boats and the beautiful Grachten houses of Amsterdam Jordaan with beautiful white fresh snow. There is nothing better than to jump in our winter clothes, snap the camera and walk through the capital of the Netherlands on a Winter Day in February. We decided to take a walking tour along the Bloemgracht of the Dutch capital towards the famous Westerkerk close by the Anna-Frank House

Our Top 10 Gay Travel Christmas Gifts – It is time for the fourth edition of our annual list of top list of Gay Travel Christmas Presents 2020.

This year, we are focussing on gay travel gifts that you can buy or book online and are therefore great last-minute Christmas presents for 2020. And

Pure LGBTQ+ Winter Fun worldwide when participating in the Top 13 Best Gay Ski Weeks in Europe, North America, and New Zeeland. It is time for some gay-friendly snow fun in the Alps, Rocky Mountains, Pyrenees, and Norway together with other LGBT Winter Sports fans from all over the world. You may think, why a gay party now also in the snow. But, why not?! LGBT people are not fully accepted in every small mountain ski areas and resorts. But during a Gay Snow Event, homosexual locals and travels get the opportunity to enjoy Ski and Snowboard fun in the

It must have been halfway somewhere between Sweden and Germany when we received an email from the Editorial Director of Lonely Planet. Now, receiving travel-related emails is usually something we are dealing with on an every-day basis. But this email should be a completely different one and at the same time mark the highlight of our work as travel bloggers so far.After years of traveling the world as an openly gay couple sharing our experiences on our blog and social media platforms while giving advice and tips to fellow LGBTQ+ travelers, we were about to receive one of the biggest

AUSTRIA: This year’s visit was somewhat special to us. We were able to rediscover our love for the city of Salzburg, meet old friends from our first trip and get to know a few completely new sides of the Austrian Sound of Music City. For example, did you know that there is a Red Bull aircraft museum in Salzburg? That a CSD Salzburg Pride has been organized every year since 2010? Or that somewhere in Hellbrunn Castle you can marvel at a ‘real’ unicorn? Join us on our second, exciting journey to Salzburg for Couple of Men and we are

GERMANY: Adventurous and curious as we are, we started our journey with a guided city tour exploring the heart of the gorgeous city center of Munich while learning more about the interesting queer stories of the Bavarian capital, starting with Freddie Mercury, the Deutsche Eiche, and the gayborhood Glockenbackviertel. You can believe us, Munich has some seriously charming places to explore! So, we were set off to a fresh and sporty bike ride away from Munich’s city center to the impressive Nymphenburg Palace, one of the biggest royal palaces in Europe. Our next stop, the Olympic Park from 1972, was
