Gay Neighbourhoods in Berlin

Berlin's core of LGBTI* activity is Nollendorfplatz in Schöneberg in the south west just beside the city zoo. In the 1920s, it enjoys a well-deserved reputation for some of Berlin's best nightlife, as well as restaurants, cafés and shops frequented by the LGBTI* community in particular. This identity continues to flourish today. Other rainbow neighbourhoods in Berlin not to be overlooked include its neighbour Kreuzberg, a quarter famous for Café Sundström and the SchwuZ nightclub just behind it. There are also shops along the Bergmannstraße as well as live music venues where LGBTI* citizens and visitors meet and have fun. The Mitte neighbourhood also has pockets of LGBTI* hotspots including Weinbergpark.
