3 hours 30 minutesMobile & paper tickets accepted

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 the 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 1600's, many waves of LGBTIQ and immigrant diasporas have come to determine "nobody flees without a reason".
On this tour we accept anyone that considers themselves LGBTIQ, an ally, or who’s just plain interested. Everyone is welcome!

We met with our guide and she took us on an amazing journey through the history of acceptance and tolerance of Berlin. The good and the bad of a history filled with amazing moments for us all to learn from.
