Welcome to the dedicated LGBT pages from the Germany National Tourist Office, which we hope will help to convey the wealth and variety of exciting experiences readily available for LGBT visitors to Germany.
We are sure that you will appreciate the openness and generosity of spirit that exists in Germany — a country that is welcoming for all, and also has something for everyone to enjoy too. Germany’s gay scene is of course legendary — some may say second-to-none — with a huge variety of events, venues, prides, parties, festivals and communities in cities and towns the length and breadth of the country.
Gay life can be experienced in every region of our country. Gay communities all over Germany are well integrated into the societies that they are part of — and gay celebrations will often attract the widespread support and participation of everybody — regardless of their age, gender or sexuality — but that’s just the start of the adventure for LGBT visitors.
A rich history and colorful traditions mix with a contemporary culture and truly progressive thinking, to make Germany one of the most dynamic and exciting countries to visit in the world. These pages show just some of the highlights — but there’s much, much more. Our cuisine, art, architecture, society, values and technology all push the boundaries — and re-define the norm. In Germany, we like to believe that anything is possible — and we aren’t afraid to think big.
We hope you enjoy what you see and read here, and that you’ll be inspired to come and see for yourself. The invitation is open — and you’ll also be very, very welcome.
