Queer Berlin walking tour

4 hours
Friday
Show more

Berlin is the queer capital of Europe and has been a pioneer of gay and lesbian rights since the late 19th Century, despite the notorious “Section 175” of the German penal code, which continued to criminalize male homosexuality for decades after the end of the Second World War.

Highlights

Berlin's oldest and best Queer Tour
Explore Schöneberg & Kreuzberg

Itinerary

Explore Berlin’s best-known gay neighborhood, Schöneberg, home of Marlene Dietrich and chronicled by Christopher Isherwood and Otto Dix. Visit the Eldorado, one of Berlin’s oldest gay and transvestite bars, and frequented by openly gay Nazi SA leader Ernst Röhm. Visit a memorial to the homosexuals persecuted by the Nazis and find out how openly queer and transgendered individuals found assistance from advocates such as Magnus Hirschfeld, whose Institute for Sexual Science was shut down in 1933, its library destroyed in the infamous Nazi book-burning.

Discover the vibrant neighborhood of Kreuzberg and see what life is like today in Berlin’s most alternative district. Find out how queer figures from the Prussian King Frederick the Great to openly gay mayor Klaus Wowereit have shaped the history of Berlin, a city which still believes a “kiss-in” to be the best form of protest.
