Hamburg for the queer Community

Discover Colourful Corners

Naturally diverse Traditionally open

As a port city, cosmopolitanism has long been in Hamburg's DNA.

Musicals along the Elbe, epic operas, Nordic cuisine or drinks with a panoramic view: Hamburg is versatile in all areas. We offer you an overview of the nicest bars and cafés, present Hamburg's most colourful districts and of course all the important events for the queer community and friends - from Christopher Street Day to the "Winter Pride" Christmas market.

In Hamburg you will  find trendy hotspots like St. Georg with the Lange Reihe, St. Pauli or the Schanzen- and Karolinenviertel. However, diversity and tolerance also characterise the self-image of our city outside these districts.

Experience the city of diversity

The maritime city has something to offer for every taste. Whether it's the many cultural highlights, the vibrant nightlife, the creative culinary scene or unique shopping opportunities: The variety of queer offers and eventsis spread throughout Hamburg's urban space. Let yourself be inspired!
