Germany Special Access Gay Cultural Tour Itinerary

Day 1 - Berlin Where Marlene Dietrich was Queen
Berlin gay tour - Potsdamer platzArrive in Berlin one of the most open-minded and culturally exotic, even erotic cities in the world. On this anniversary of the uniting of both East and West Berlin, you値l be greeted by a modern city that literally has it all -from the world痴 finest museums to sleek state-of-the-art transportation. As Berlin痴 mayor says: 展e may not be as rich [as Bavaria], but we are sexy!

After a brief orientation by our Public Radio and HE travel host, Cary Harrison, we will head off to a deluxe Welcome Dinner followed by some time to explore Berlin at night.


Day 2 - Berlin - Touring inside and out
Berlin gay tour - Brandenburg gateToday, we will enjoy touring through Berlin and see how this magnificent city (now joined) is put together. From the iconic Brandenburg gate (made more famous in Showtime痴 滴omeland) to the German parliament dome which offers an architectural experience and 360ー views of this part of Germany.

Later, we take you to lunch at the dome 迭eichstag followed by the afternoon to explore the unfolding city. At night, you may prefer an Optional visit to gay Berlin痴 famous Laboratory Club open only on Friday nights for 2 hours.


Day 3 - The Berlin Wall and An Island Holding World Treasures
Berlin gay cultural tourToday, see the only-surviving stretch of the Berlin Wall still standing, complete with intact graffiti of the time (on the Western side) opposed by a shocking counterpoint on the former East German side in a stunning outdoor museum setting.

We will have day passes to see visit all the top museums on Berlin痴 famous 溺useum Island. (A significant, vast portion of ancient Greece痴 actual Parthenon still sits in Berlin and cannot be found on the Acropolis.)


Days 4 - Inside a Buried Fortress
Berlin gay tour - Charlottenburg palaceVIP Experience: Leveraging his Public Radio access and journalism credentials, we gain access to the devastated underground ruins of a WW2 Nazi Bunker fortress. Cary takes you under the nerve center of the Third Reich into one of the few remaining Nazi bunkers, as it was left intact after the war. Forgotten deep under the streets of East German communists, these (amount still unknown) bunker systems sat, untouched, and remains accessible under special educational license only. We get an unparalleled glimpse into 砥nderground Berlin during the air raids that destroyed 80% of the city center traveling through the twisting passages and rooms, observing countless artifacts from the war that have remained buried there for decades. A still-functioning pneumatic post provides you with an insight into the 160-year-old underground history of Berlin.

Depending on limited permits, we may also see a dazzling underground landscape complete with dizzying views seven stories underground where the Fhrer ordered a gigantic 擢lak Tower built, to fire enormous aerial weapons (some successfully) at Allied aircraft. Though bombed, 8,000 archaeological hours and 1,400 cubic meters of rubble have been removed, opening up an area not before thought to exist.

Later in the afternoon, you may choose to go on your own to Berlin痴 famous Queer Museum (Schwulesmuseum) or pay homage at Marlene Dietrich痴 elegant but hidden grave. Her headstone is covered in flowers and cigarette butts in holders (inside humor from fans).

This evening we will enjoy a spectacular dinner view at the very top of the Berlin TV Tower痴 rotating restaurant.


Days 5 - Munich The Crown Jewel of Bavaria
Germany gay tour - MunichWe will take our journey to Munich via rail, giving us plenty of time to relax and enjoy the lush countryside. After we arrive and settle into our hotel, we will enjoy a walking tour of the old city of Munich, followed by a delicious dinner at a lakeside restaurant.

After dinner, some may wish (on their own) to visit the 3-story underground gay sauna which is the largest in all of Munich. It痴 literally under Die Deutsche Eiche and is celebrated as the premier hangout for palliative steam, soak, or saunter.


Days 6 - This King is a Big Queen
Bavaria gay tour - Neuschwanstein castleToday is fit for a King (or a Queen) as we visit Bavarian Gay King Ludwig II痴 Linderhof Palace. This is the famous palace where our gay king floated in grand, golden swans in his blue-lit water grotto. While King Ludwig was not known to take in visitors (the staff does talk!), he frequently visited the young stablehands below, for hours at a time, ensuring the horses were well-kept.

We next head up literally up to Castle Neuschwanstein, made famous by Walt Disney himself in a literal reproduction the Magic Kingdom. Magic, indeed.

King Ludwig had only a single visitor to this castle, that being his mother. Lud also had the only working telephone in the world, at the time, which presumably rang to mummy or perhaps to...


Day 7 - Lederhosen Time Free Day
Munich gay tourSome will wish to walk around the vast area preparing for the upcoming Oktoberfest. While it won稚 have officially started (until our Sunday 兎xtension day), the ramp-up can often be barely distinguishable from the real thing.

Some will wish to visit the Deutsche Eiche痴 impeccably-clean gay saunas & cafes (at the sauna) as the saunas peak early, between 5-7 pm, as they are social meeting spots and have an entirely different vibe from what American versions are said to be.

You may wish to visit Nymphenburg Palace (another castle, right in town(ish) and to have sunset cocktails on Hotel Deutsche Eiche痴 historic rooftop bar which offers the single best views of Bavaria at Sunset.

Some will wish to visit the English Gardens with lines of German boys literally surfing (on surfboards) on the gushing natural river currents.

You can also visit Munich痴 Nazi Dokumention Museum which holds a comprehensive history of the Third Reich.


Day 8 - Dachau Memorial

Munich Gay Oktoberfest


Stay longer and enjoy Munich Gay Oktoberfest!

Day 11 - Munich Gay Oktoberfest!
Munich Gay OktoberfestSunday is the Offical Gay Oktoberfest Day! Enjoy Gay Sunday (Rosa Wiesn) in the Br舫rosl tent, with thousands of gay guys. The event started in the 70s when gay leather/fetish Germans (the Munich Lions Club) crashed the Br舫rosl beer tent and changed history.

The day continues with plenty of German beer and a live oompah band playing camped-up Oompah music. There痴 also another venue on the green that痴 an over-the-top drinking hall that seats over 8,000 LGBT+ revelers in rows of long tables. Yep. Game on!


Day 12 - Farewell
We hope you enjoyed your taste of Oktoberfest! Safe travels home.


Or enjoy a getaway to Amsterdam

Days 11 - 15 - Amsterdam Gay Getaway
Amsterdam gay tourStay longer and enjoy a lovely stay in open-minded Amsterdam, where the first legal gay marriages were performed in 2001. Liberalism was invented here! Free trade and social tolerance are the hallmarks of Amsterdam, and the people here invented something called 敵edogen which is a policy of 斗etting things happen that has been shocking religious conservatives since the 17th century!

Many of us still remember the 1970s, when it was the ultimate city of free love and free drugs, and many aspects of that period are still alive, including a very active gay liberation movement. Indeed, it is a city that looks both backward and forward, with the beautifully preserved 17th-century architecture and art of its charming center and open-minded liberalism that could serve as a model for the future if we are smart!
