Introducing Gay Hamburg
Hamburg: Harbor, Reeperbahn, Sophistication and More
Hamburg, Germany’s gay-friendly metropolis in the north, is called the ‘Gate to the world’. The eight hundred year old harbor and the mix of old and new, tradition and modernity make Hamburg an unique place in Germany.
In addition to the well-known big events such as Christopher Street Day and the leather convention, Hamburg offers a diversity of events to enjoy the homosexual scene.The city’s harbor is perfect for strolls and enjoyable sightseeing trips by boat and is where visitors can discover what the Hamburg native loves about his city: the water and the freedom. ‘Live and let live’ is a typical philosophy in Hamburg. Open-mindedness and tolerance are written big in this city, which is why the gay scene feels very welcome here. It was therefore no coincidence that Germany’s first gay marriage was officiated here.
Opened in July 2007 The Port of Dreams – Emigrant World BallinStadt is one of the city’s top visitor attractions and should not be missed. Here, people from all over the world are able to gain an authentic insight into the conditions under which last century’s European emigrants traveled across the Atlantic to start a new life in America.
