Review of Klaus K Design Hotel Helsinki Gay-friendly – Before we start with our review of the Klaus K Hotel Helsinki, we want to warn you, it is going to be a very sexy gay-friendly hotel article. Not only because of all the sexy and intimidating painting by Touko Valio Laaksonen, much better known as Tom of Finland. A must do for LGBT travelers coming to Helsinki is to learn more about Tom of Finland and the open mindset of the Finnish people who legalist same sex-marriage in 2017. The erotic artwork of the Finnish artist aka Tom of Finland

eview of Katajanokka Hotel Helsinki Gay-friendly – Escape the Ordinary. Under this motto, hotel guests can discover a unique accommodation in a former Finnish prison on Helsinki’s island Katajanokka in a privately owned, gay-friendly lifestyle hotel. It was an interesting and exciting experience to stay in a modern and spacious hotel room in Helsinki which was in a building that was built to be the living and sleeping space for prisoners who had to serve their prison terms since the early 19th century. After all, the oldest parts of the prison date back to 1837. But the history as a

Review of Scandic Berlin Kurfürstendamm gay-friendly Hotel. It was time for us to finally travel to Berlin again to spend some days in the biggest city of Germany where we explored the gay neighborhood Berlin Schöneberg, attend the CSD Berlin Gay Pride and tested the 4-star hotel Scandic Berlin Kurfürstendamm. We were invited to show the best of the gay-friendly hotel with a Scandinavian style and design located in Berlin Charlottenburg just around the corner of the former city center of West Berlin. Good to know: the Scandic Berlin Kurfürstendamm is a member of the Pink Pillow collection by the

Review of our gay-friendly stay at the Marriott Downtown Toronto Eaton Centre. Modern style, a gay-friendly staff, and a perfect location: During our gay couple city trip in the largest Canadian city Toronto, we stayed right in the heart between Downtown Toronto and Church-Wellesley Village, the popular so-called Gay Village. The Marriott hotel offers good service for gay and LGBT travelers including spacious and comfortable rooms, a rooftop pool as well as a whirlpool, a very nice 24-hour fitness studio with a Toronto city view, a rich breakfast buffet and free luggage service. We found all we needed for a

Our 4 Must Do's Niagara Falls Canada adventure in Ontario - The Niagara Falls Region is with 18 million visitors a year the most visited tourist attraction of Northern America. The south-eastern side of the Niagara River lays on US American ground while the Horseshoe Falls, the bigger of the two waterfalls is part of Canada. This April, we as gay travel blogger visited Toronto located by Lake Ontario in the Canadian province Ontario. While Toronto as the biggest Canadian city has much to offer for LGBT travelers and locals, we decided to add an adventurous gay-friendly weekend trip to Niagara

Review of a Gay Couple Finnish Design Sauna LÖYLY Helsinki experience – A visit to Finland wouldn’t be perfect without sweating in a Finnish Sauna, at least once. Next to all the public saunas all around the city, in May 2016 Helsinki got a new design-attraction: the “design-sauna-experience” LÖYLY. And of course, we as sauna fans were excited to start our Saturday morning with a 2-hours stop on the peninsula Hernesaari in the southeastern part of Helsinki. This relaxing, gay-friendly hot spot with several saunas like a traditional smoke sauna is completely heated by firewood collected in the woods of

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

Our Gay Couple Rental Canal Boat Tour Amsterdam - A Gay City Weekend Amsterdam without a boat tour around the canals and Grachten of Amsterdam? No way! Not only because it is very common in the Netherlands to have your own boat (or know someone who does). As soon as the sun comes out, everyone with a boat is on the canals, cruising around the Grachten, ordering pizza at the "boat drive in" and is just enjoying the beauty of the gay-friendly Dutch capital, unique nature, and the Amstel River. Actually, for us, it is simply one of the best

Mainport Hotel Rotterdam Gay-Friendly – Staying right in the middle of the city port area, we enjoyed in proper style the very special luxurious Hotel experience in the 5 star Mainport Hotel Rotterdam. Named as most luxurious and modern Hotel of the Dutch Harbor City Rotterdam, The Mainport Hotel by Inntel Hotels welcomes its guests with a stylish lobby, modern interior and a special creative touch. In a word, Luxury combined with a perfect city trip location: the right gay-friendly place to stay during a Gay Couple City Weekend Rotterdam.

Nights to remember at Nakagin Capsule Tower Tokyo Japan. Our first trip to Japan started impressive, different and somehow adventurous. We didn’t choose a hotel for our first nights in Tokyo. Instead, we used a unique and rare Airbnb offer to stay in an architectural icon, the world famous Nakagin Capsule Tower. Designed by the architect Kisho Kurokawa, the capsule tower as a compilation of living 140 living cubes is a remarkable building of the Japanese Metabolism finished in 1972. The building is located right in the center of one of the financial districts of the Japanese capital Tokyo, Shimbashi.
