Opened in 1985, Berlin's Gay Museum moved to a former printing house in the Tiergarten district in 2013, and now enjoys a sprawling exhibition space. By means of thought-provoking events, talks and exhibitions, the museum chronicles gay culture, both within and outside Germany. Known locally as the Schwules Museum, the Gay Museum makes for a fun and unique visit, with signage in English and German.

Open Berlin

Berlin has confidently been growing into its role as one of Europe's top city break destinations. The city's eventful past can be witnessed at locations including the Berlin Wall and the Jewish Museum, while a river cruise is the perfect way to take in impressive sights such as Berlin Cathedral, Museum Island and the Reichstag. Foodies are spoiled for choice with the global cuisine available, as well the local favourites of bratwurst sausage and kebabs. As night descends, Berlin's underground scene comes alive with its moodily-lit bars, colourful parties and international DJs. Or how about some 1920s style cabaret and dinner? Undoubtedly, Berlin prides itself on its diversity and inclusive outlook - encounter this first hand at the Gay Museum.

Berlin's LGBTIQ community

The Gay Museum chronicles the discrimination and struggles faced by the community in Germany and elsewhere over the centuries. Look out for areas dedicated to Wagner and Rock Hudson. The latter was an American heartthrob of the 50s and 60s who played a crucial role in the public perception of AIDS in the 1980s. Other highlights include a special exhibition on dandyism, which features an impressive collection of ties. The Gay Museum has played a pivotal role in archiving, researching and showcasing the time-line of LGBTIQ communities in Germany and beyond. That's not to mention its important contributions to research, and its knowledgeable, mostly volunteer, staff.
