Although big crowds showed up in support of Munich’s Gay community during the Gay Pride celebration today, I am told that both Berlin and Cologne are much larger hotspots for gay and lesbian enthusiasts. One reason is that Bavaria tends to be socially quite conservative, perhaps the most conservative federal state in Germany. Munich clubs are often dominated by pretty clothes, while in contrast many bars go for the traditional Jeans & Leather style. If your preferences are somewhere in-between, then I’m told Camp and Kr@ftAkt can be good options. Most of Munich's gay cafes, bars and shops are located in the city center in the area Glockenbachviertel close to the subway station Sendlinger Tor.
