Strategically situated at the heart of northern Europe, Germany is loaded with some of the continent's best gay-rich and style-heavy super-cities, rendering it a savvy Euro-traveler wonderland:

Berlin is the capital of today's queer Germany. Über-hip, profoundly historic, and perennially full of chutzpah, Berlin is the ultimate modern melting pot, a city whose art, music, design, fashion, and nightlife scenes are all nothing short of epic.

Hamburg is Germany's second-largest city, a busy modern metropolis that's known as the country's media capital. As the biggest and most important German port town, Hamburg's long been called the "Gate to the World" and acclaimed for its stylish, international flair.

Cologne is Germany's "other" gay capital. Best known to outsiders for its iconic Kölner Dom, the city is also home to excellent museums, a hopping arts scene, and a warm and sexy populace.

Frankfurt is Germany's business and financial capital, often called "Mainhattan" thanks to its adjacent River Main and its New York-esque skyscraper-heavy horizon. The epicenter of Frankfurt gay action is the so-called Bermuda Triangle, just north of the city-center Konstablerwache.

Munich is also a huge draw, with its active cultural scene, the stunning Bavarian Alps as a backdrop and loads of historic castles nearby. Munich annually hosts the infamous beer-soaked Oktoberfest where the first Sunday is now coined “Gay Sunday.”
