The Tiergarten (park) is very popular and by the Siegessaeule (Victory Column) there’s a legendary cruising spot. It’s one of the oldest gay cruising parks in Berlin. There’s also action around the bushes at Lowenbrucke (Lion Bridge).
There’s outdoor cruising here at Friedrichshain’s Volkspark around the Marchenbrunnen (water-fountain area), both day and night, but be cautious after dark. Also, behind the memorial to spanish soldiers and along the wall that runs around the krankenhaus.
Cruise Parties & Clubs
The biggest parties are Snax Club during the Easter Weekend, the weekend parties in Lab.oratory, the legendary HustlaBall and the semi-annual fetish parties Perverts and Pig.
Folsome Europe and the Easter Leather Fetish events also host special week-long parties and events. But the gay Berlin visitor can engage in sexual pleasures all year round – actually some tourists only come here especially for the sex.
The most unusual location for these parties is undoubtedly the Lab.oratory. There are various internet platforms claiming it to be the best gay sex club in the world.
Alone the mere size is impressive, as much as the party´s unusual mottos. In Prenzlauer Berg mainly Stahlrohr 2.0 is very popular.
Nearly every inner city district has bars for an erotic get-together. In Kreuzberg it is Club Culture Houze and the Triebwerk – both always rather busy!
In Woof and in Scheune the change between usual bar business and sexparty always goes easily and smoothly.
Berlin has seen many saunas come and go over the years, and there are now 2 super-saunas battling it out for customers. Both have been completely reformed over the past few years and offer theme nights and special events. Check out the Sauna guide for details
