KiezTour Nollendorfplatz

The queer city tour in Berlin

Every Thursday at 5:30 pm the KiezTour starts through the oldest queer neighborhood in Europe. Immerse yourself in 140 years of history and get to know queer culture and subculture. Accompanied by a real Berlin DRAG-Queens, who know the neighborhood very well, you will learn more than you could read in history books and on the way there will be one or the other delicious surprise waiting for you.

The KiezTour is aimed at all Berliners, all newcomers and all visitors to Berlin who want to get to know and experience Europe's oldest queer neighborhood with its 140-year history in an entertaining way and with one or two culinary surprises. On the 3,5-hour tour you discover Regenbogenkiez at Nollendorfplatz in the heart of Berlin-Schöneberg. 

The tour takes place every Thursday at 5.30pm. Starting in April 2024 the first tour of the month will be in English language!

Take a look behind the scenes, visit legendary locations as well as quirky bars. Browse through typical trendy shops, talk to shop owners and toast with bar owners. Margot Schlönzke and Jurassica Parka, among others, are your guides and talk expertly and with a twinkle in their eyes about the eventful history and the issues that are currently driving the scene.

You will pass legendary locations, explore quirky scene bars, snoop into stores for fetish supes, cross the paths of "Emil and the Detectives" and try one or the other delicacy on the way. The 3.5-hour tour begins with Berlin's founding years and the "first German gay movement", continues through the golden 20s and the Nazi era, into the iconic 80s and the here and now of the rainbow neighbourhood around Nollendorfplatz. You will also discover how relevant queer institutions are as "shelters" and why this loving, open and tolerant neighborhood is so important and worth protecting. This tour will show you what you can't read in any history book. Prepare you and your friends for an entertaining, funny and sociable evening. 

Please note: The minimum age for the tour is 18, as the tour also includes visits to bars and venues where only adults are allowed. 

The tour always takes place on Thursdays and starts at 5.30 pm at Nollendorfplatz. You will be informed of the exact starting point after booking your ticket. The first tour of the month will be in English language!
