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. In our last year’s list of gay travel presents, we found some great gifts like wooden bow ties and clothing made of eco materials that support our intentions for 2020 to find and promote sustainability in gay travel, an environmentally friendly restart of our travel plans. 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

That is why we would like to use today’s opportunity to share knowledge about this important topic, help to create awareness, and show our support. Because, even though luckily nowadays there are HIV treatments, the virus has not disappeared and in many parts of the world still threatens people’s lives. Couple of Men reporter Sarah had the chance to talk to Chris Vincent, HIV and Aids activist from Denmark sharing the latest information and update for World Aids Day 2020.

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

GERMANY: Back to the roots! It always feels like a journey back in time when we are visiting Karl’s family in Eastern Germany. Not only because of the baroque beauty of Dresden’s architectural monuments including the Zwinger, the Castle of Dresden, or the uncountable art treasures in the museums of the Eastern German City. But also because it was Karl’s home town where he came out of the closet, got in touch with the local LGBTQ+ community, and started to play Volleyball in the European Gay League.

The famous Golden Circle Tour Iceland: Þingvellir, Geysir & Gullfoss | Part 2: The days in Iceland’s capital Reykjavik were wonderful: close to the nature with nordic architecture as a perfect starting point for our 21 days road trip around the whole island Iceland. Karl & Daan, two nature lovers going with a 4×4 Land Cruiser, a tent and all necessary equipment on a discovery trip. Huge waterfalls, a walk between the American and European tectonic plates the world famous Geysir left us simply speechless. But there is more to see during the first steps of untouched nature. The Golden

You might remember our first trip last summer where we attended Malmö Pride and toured around the Southern part of Sweden, Scania. This year, we are going back to see even more of Malmö especially the preparations for World Pride 2021 together with Copenhagen. Well, out of this idea developed a plan to see more of central Europe. The idea for a staycation 2020 was born. After our road trip to Sweden, we will make our way over the Baltic Sea to Germany by ferry in order to start our one-month road “Best of LGBTQ+ Germany”. Join us on our

A Dutch Island Vlieland Autumn Weekend – What to do on a rainy autumn weekend in the Netherlands in Northern Europe? This question is good to answer with a weekend escape to the Watten Sea at the north coast of the Netherlands to enjoy a Dutch Island Vlieland Autumn Weekend just 1,5 hours north of the Dutch capital Amsterdam. But do you know how to get to Vlieland with a ferry, what to do on Vlieland in autumn and what if it starts raining? Did you know there is cranberry weekend, that you can listen to a candlelight concert in
