Berlin is reputed to be the third biggest gay city in Europe, and in Cologne men kissing and women holding hands are as much a part of the scenery as the famous cathedral.
The LGBT scene is also firmly enshrined in the cultural life of the other Magic Cities where there are events such as parades and parties to mark Christopher Street Day, Pink Monday at the Biggest Funfair on the Rhine in Düsseldorf, or Pink Christmas in Munich, which is popular with everyone, whatever their sexual persuasion.
Special guides in many cities ensure that visitors find their way around the gay scene.
