Gay Travel Germany

Review of the MOXY Hotel Berlin Ostbahnhof Gay-friendly – Time again for Berlin, the capital city in the eastern part of Germany. Famous for its arty, alternative and hipsters lifestyle as well as for its history as a divided city, Berlin is an all year round destination, worth a weekend or full week trip. And as everyone knows, Berlin is the popular party metropole of Europe for straight and LGBTQ+ people from all over the world. Nothing can be too crazy, too alternative or too inventive. Our trip to Berlin gave us the perfect reason to stay and review the

The 9th edition of the Goldelsen-Cup Berlin Gay Lesbian Volleyball Tournament 2017 – It is time to kick-off our Gay Sports articles on our blog with this year’s Goldelsen Cup in Berlin! The 9th edition of the annual International Gay and Lesbian Volleyball Tournament in Berlin is considered to be one of the biggest European LGBTQ+ Sports Tournaments taking place at the end of November in the German capital. As chance would have it, Karl is a passionate Volleyball player who started his Volleyball career at the age of 12. After he came out of the closet, Karl decided to

Finally Equality Germany Same-Sex Marriage – This year Germany will have parliamentary elections (for the Bundestag) where Angela Merkel is up for re-election for the fourth time. Until now, the German government is against marriage equality and allows only the soft version of the gay marriage as a civil union since 2001. That means German members of the LGBTQ+ community are not able to claim same rights compared to straight relationships. But this is about to change, thanks to LGBTQ+ activists in Germany and for sure thanks to all the people joining German Gay Pride Parades of the last years.

Election in Germany 2017: Vote and stand up for your freedom! Travesty for Germany Drag Election Posters calling for a Change (in Politics) – It is time again for Germany to vote for the members of the German Federal Parliament and as a consequence for a new, bright, and inspiring future for Germany, Europe, and the world. We all know about the threats to Democracy, LGBTQ+ life and freedom coming from the right-wing populists and about how important it is to give our vote a democratic party. But that is not all. The elections 2017 in Germany are just a

Our Gay Couple City Weekend Hamburg – The Hanseatic city in the Northern part of Germany was high on our gay travel’s bucket list already for a while. And so we were happy to take the opportunity to visit Hamburg for three days in early summer. Exploring the main port city of Germany was a comforting journey through the old parts like Warehouse District and the gay (friendly) neighborhood St. Georg. And don’t forget our Pyjama Park Hotel stay at one of the most crowded party streets of Hamburg, the Reeperbahn.

Sleeping in a Slumber Wine Barrel Taufsteinhütte Central Germany - We have to admit, it was a very special experience to sleep in a wine barrel in the middle of a winter wonderland in the German state Hessen. During our Winter Road Trip from Frankfurt am Main to Nature Park Hoher Vogelsberg we spent a night in the gay-friendly hotel "Slumber Wine Barrel" village at Taufsteinhhütte in the middle of the forest. The view over the Hoherodskopf with its huge with its huge radio tower covered in ice and snow was stunning. Inside the wine barrel, we felt like two

The Pyjama Park Hotel Hamburg Reeperbahn – is an accommodation with best value for the money for a stay in Hamburg. The German city Hamburg, in particular, the Reeperbahn in St. Pauli, is well known for its nightlife. Loads of bars, clubs, and restaurants next to each other creating an atmosphere until late in the night. Our Hotel, the Pyjama Park Hotel, was located right in the beginning of the Reeperbahn in an old town building above the Pyjama Bar.

Pure Nature around Neuendorfer Lake & Gruben Lake in East Germany on our Winter Road Trip Berlin Spree Forest Brandenburg. A perfect day trip or an ideal weekend off in East German Spree Forest in Brandenburg. The German capital is located in the eastern part of the Country surrounded by the state Brandenburg and a almost never ending nature region. Rivers, lakes and forest – especially in Winter this part of Germany is very calm, almost isolated and simply a wonderful place o relax and slow down. We collected some peaceful Winter impressions of the world famous Spree Forest nature

A Gay Couple City Weekend Dresden - Back to roots: the gay couple visiting Karl's hometown feels always like a gay travel back in time. Not only because of the baroque beauty of Dresden's architecture monuments like the Zwinger, Castle of Dresden or the uncountable art treasures in the Easter German City. A small but lively gay community, many bars, cafés and restaurants and of course, the river Elbe creating this very special Italian city flair. Once a year Dresden turns into the gay capital of Saxony when thousands of LGBT's and spectators walking all together for equality and human
