Berlin's Gay, Lesbian, and Queer Scene Walking Tour
Start your walking tour in the Schöneberg area and visit Eldorado, one of Berlin’s oldest and most famous trans* bars that once featured regular performances of Marlene Dietrich.
Find out how openly gay and transgendered people found assistance from the sexologist Magnus Hirschfeld, whose Institute for Sexual Science was shut down in during World War II in 1933 and its library destroyed during the Nazi book burning. Then, visit the Memorial to Homosexuals Persecuted Under Nazism.
Continue your tour walking through the Tiergarten, the city’s best-known gay meeting spot hidden behind the Berlin Wall. Find out how LGBTQ figures have shaped the history of Berlin from the Prussian King Friedrich the Great to today’s openly gay Mayor Klaus Wowereit.
Finish your walking tour with a tour of the Gay Museum* (Schwules Museum*) in the vibrant district of Kreuzberg, considered one of the world's first gay museums.

Best tour we've ever been on. Finn was a fantastic tour guide. He is super informative, friendly and fun. We highly recommend.
Wow! This is one of the best walking tours I have ever taken! Finn really knows his stuff! We even got a bonus of this tour: by taking us on the bus, we drove by several different buildings that he discussed as well as several other "non-gay" sites. The gay part of the tour was amazing; taking us back through the gay history of Berlin all way to the mid 1700's - DO NOT miss this tour if you are in Berlin! I would give it 10 starts if I could!! Highly recommended!!
