Information, organisations and services
Whether staying in Berlin for a holiday or an extended period, the range of practical information for LGBTI * visitors is impressive, and includes specific advice and counselling services as well as information on entertainment venues. LSVD is a great starting point, offering access to many services. TrIQ specialises in trans and intersex issues, while Lesbenberatung is directed at lesbian and bisexual women. Those visiting Berlin for short stays will likely want to check out the Schöneberg district in the south west of the city. Here you'll find a great concentration of LGBTI * friendly bars, clubs, and events including Gay Pride in July.
