Already for 10 years in a row, Carinthia, a state in the south of Austria, is celebrating with hundreds of gay guys, lesbian girls, trans- and bisexual people together with their friends and allies colorful Pink Lake Festival in and around the market town Velden am Wörthersee.

Yasss! We as Gay Travel Blogger will attend the 11th edition of the Pink Lake Festival in Southern Austria this August in 2018. Just two weeks and less to go before we will depart to Klagenfurt in the South of the Austrian state Carinthia. We cannot wait to be in the mountains again, something we really miss in Amsterdam! The small town Pörtschach am Wörthersee will turn pink to offer an LGBTQ+ friendly Get-together to celebrate diversity, love, and equality right on the world famous Lake Wört (Wörthersee) nestled in the Alps of Austria. Together with the European gay-community, we

Our Salzburg Gay Couple City Trip to The Sound of Music, Mozart and Conchita Wurst – Wait, Conchita who? Well, let us start with the beginning. In the wonderful warm month of June, we traveled to the world-famous Austrian city of Salzburg in the northeastern part of the Alpine country. The city, known for its fortress named Fortress Hohensalzburg, came to fame internationally by being the movie location for the American musical drama “The Sound of Music” with Julie Andrews. But of course, the success story of the music city of Salzburg, Austria started already centuries ago having the climax

Our trip to Austria’s Capital City with the Gay-friendly Design Hotel Le Méridien Vienna – It was finally time for us to travel together to the capital of Austria Vienna! The recently named “Destination of the Year” by the Australian LGBTI Awards was already for a while now very high on our gay travel bucket list, especially after traveling to other parts of the Alpine state before. And what could be a better reason, besides pride, to travel to Vienna than the annual AIDS Charity event Life Ball? Exactly! Lucky us, we were invited to attend the 25th edition of

Life Ball Vienna Austria - We will attend the 25th edition of the Life Ball Vienna Austria – It is time for one of the most important annual AIDS charity events in the world. It is time for the 25th edition of Life Ball 2018! Just one week after we explored the wonderful “Sound of Music” city Salzburg, we will fly to the Austrian capital with Austrian Airlines and will stay at the Le Méridien Hotel, both official partners of the Life Ball 2018. Just like any other Life Ball since 1993 has the 25th-anniversary edition chosen a specific topic.

Same-Sex Marriage Austria - For many of you, and even for us, this great news coming from Austria feel like an early Christmas present, especially for the LGBTQ+ community of the European country Austria. The Constitutional Court of Austria decided today that by the beginning of 2019 same-sex couples will be allowed to marry in the alpine country. After Germany this summer, the next European country will get marriage equality, although some time and patience is still needed.

Our 6 Lederhosen Tips Traditional Austrian Garments – Wearing a traditional folk costume is an important part of daily life defining an own identity in the mountains of the Alps. In the German-speaking South Austrian state Carinthia alone more than 80 different kinds of traditional garments are officially registered, one more beautiful than the other, for women and men, of course. Unsurprisingly, we as gay couple travel blogger wanted to know more about the tradition of wearing real Austrian Lederhosen as they are a traditional national clothing coming originally from the farmers. And of course, we still needed the perfect

A stay at ROCKET ROOMS Velden am Wörthersee gay-friendly – Summer time is Pink Lake time!

The market town Velden am Wörthersee, well-known for the Renaissance castle Schloss Velden, is located at the Western lake side of Lake
