ToursBerlin's Gay, Lesbian, and Queer Scene Walking Tour
From $23 per person
3 hours 30 minutes
4.6981134 (53)

A queer king, a gay mayor, Marlene Dietrich in Blue Angel, David Bowie in the ’70s, Audre Lorde in the ’80s: Berlin has long been a magnet for LGBTIQ icons and allies, from the wild days of the 1920s and the dark days of persecution under the Nazis through to the Cold War. Hear about the club scene of the ’90s, the unlikely queer icon Frederick the Great, and the life of the openly gay Nazi Ernst Röhm. Explore world-famous Schöneberg, once the central district of sapphic Berlin, home of philosopher and war journalist Erika Mann, chronicled by painter Otto Dix and writer Christopher Isherwood. Discuss the queer community of Berlin and all the communities it intersects with by visiting Kreuzberg, where, as far back as the 1600s, many waves of LGBTIQ and immigrant diasporas came to determine “Nobody flees without a reason”. On this tour we accept anyone that considers themselves LGBTIQ, an ally, or anyone who is just plain interested. Everyone is welcome!
