Munich have good times to offer for gay travelers
Munich, Germany – is often overlooked by gay travelers because of Berlin’s infamous decadence. They love leather pants and closeted 19th-century Bavarian monarch Ludwig II. Munich has a throwback charm unique from artistic Berlin.
Dietmar Holzapfel, and his husband Josef Sattler, says hospitality in Munich has long extended to members of the LGBT community.
“Our former mayor Christian Ude was the patron of Pride 22 years ago, when other politicians didn’t dare do this. Munich was also the first city in Europe to host the IGLTA (International Gay and Lesbian Travel Alliance) convention.” He explained.
With an LGBT festivals almost every month, Munich is a party that never stops. Even Oktoberfest turns one massive tent over to gay brew enthusiasts.
You can find gay quarter, Glockenbachviertel, located not far from old city Altstadt, with lots of shops, bars and restaurants.
Holzapfel and Sattler’s joint are boasting sophisticated, modern rooms at reasonable prices and a fashionable bar/restaurant. Hotel Deutsche Eiche is overcrowded with LGBT travelers.
Sunbathing at the Isar River in warm weather is like a tradition in Munich, and also a good time for travelers. The Flaucher area is especially popular within gay community.
