Trends / LGBTQ

Hamburg is Germany’s second-largest city and home to a thriving LGBTQ+ scene. Unlike many European cities, it’s not exactly known for its scenic views. But that just means you have more time to experience its gay charm.


Gay life in Hamburg is centered in two districts, St. Georg and St. Pauli, though you’ll find plenty of gay-friendly establishments all around town. The George Hotel is arguably the gayest hotel in town, though the Park Hyatt is a close second. Both are near popular attractions and make for a relaxing place to rest.


When it comes to nightlife, the city has no shortage of bars and clubs catering to LGBTQ+ clientele. M&V Bar is one of the more popular venues and boasts some of the best dance parties in Hamburg. WunderBar, next to the Reeperbahn red light district, is one of the oldest and most crowded clubs in town. Daniel’s Company is a great option for all ages, and sees the most diverse crowd.


During the day be sure to stop by Kyti Voo, a popular restaurant with outdoor seating. It boasts excellent food and a large gay following. There’s also Café Uhrlaub, one of the oldest gay-owned eateries in the city.


When you’re not enjoying the vibrant LGBTQ+ culture in Hamburg, there are plenty of other fun experiences to be had. As one of Europe’s greenest cities, a stroll along the River Elbe is a must in order to take in the sights. It’s also where you’ll find the Port of Hamburg, considered the gateway to Germany. The International Maritime Museum is a great place to learn about the city’s seafaring history, while the Miniatur Wunderland is one of the country’s largest tourist attractions. The family-friendly site contains the world’s largest model railway, and a miniature airport with planes that actually take off.
