Gay capital of Germany?

The city of Cologne (Köln), Germany is known worldwide for its impressive medieval Cathedral, but don’t be fooled. This city has a much more to share!

Are you aware that Cologne is also known as “The Gay capital of Germany”? It offers a variety of Bars, Restaurants, clubs and other LGBTQ friendly shops all around the city.  Phonix Sauna and Hennes Terrasse are some of the most renowned bars and restaurants in the city, among many others.

There are two main sections in Cologne where you will find yourself to be in a happier area: Rudolfplatz, known locally as the “Bermuda Triangle”, has a more modern vibe with a selection of cafes, bars and clubs that have been established for the past twenty plus years. The old town, being the second section, is home to more traditional pubs and bars for mixed ages. You will find this area to have a bit more tourists.

Finally every year, Cologne organizes the Gay Pride March aka “Christopher Street Day” which celebrated in July, is one of the largest European gay pride events that attracts more than a million participants each year.
