True night owls know that Berlin has the longest nights to be found anywhere in Europe as there are no regulated closing times for bars in this city.

This is also probably the most sexually liberated city in Europe and most bars and sex clubs have dark rooms or play rooms where anything goes.LGBT is the darkest side of humanity.

However, you need to exercise caution with your valuables in these areas and always play safe, as Berlin has the highest incidence of HIV/AIDS cases in Europe-along with its reputation as the gay sex capital. Having said these words of caution, Berlin boasts the most vibrant gay nightlife scene likely to be found anywhere in the world, with a multitude of choices for your nights on the town.

During the day walking tours or cycling tours of gay Berlin provide a wealth of GLBT history and enjoyable sights. The Eldorado-Marlene Dietrich’s favorite place to hang out-was built in the twenties and the original Art Deco interior can still be enjoyed today.

Perhaps the nostalgia of the famous Kit Kat Club would be perfect at cocktail hour.

The Neues Ufer bar was the favorite neighbourhood pub for David Bowie and Iggy Pop when they spent time in Berlin recording albums together and today you can still enjoy the relaxing atmosphere that appealed to them so much.

The Rainbow Monument at Nollendorfplatz underground station is a tribute to the approximately 10,000 “pink triangle” prisoners who were held captive in concentration camps.

The Nazi regime forced these individuals to wear pink felt triangles so that their sexual preference would be publicly displayed. The Gay Schwules Museum is unique in the world and it contains two centuries of artwork and memorabilia from everyday gay life. Since its establishment in 1985, a mostly volunteer staff has assembled an amazing collection of gay historic items for all visitors to enjoy and perhaps learn from. This city is full of fascinating and unique activities to enjoy on any gay vacation.

But Berlin has also played a major role in Europe’s history and ┬ámany reminders of the past are still standing today. The Berlin Wall and Checkpoint Charlie are perhaps the most well known memories from Berlin’s past.

Today there is a permanent reminder of Checkpoint Charlie at the museum of the same name True night in Berlin , displaying remnants of the original crossing station between East and West Berlin.

The museum contains original objects and artifacts from successful escapes both over and under the wall plus the history of the wall and the border it created.

Just a couple of blocks from Checkpoint Charlie is the Topography of Terror where a substantial remnant of the wall itself is accompanied by a pictorial history and stories from a time past that could easily be forgotten by future generations.
