Beer, Boys, And Lederhosen – Gay Guide To Gay Munich, Germany!
Are you ready to have some beer with the boys? If so, my darling little divas, delicious drag queens, handsome gay bears, and terrific twinky boytoys, I’m here to tell you about Munich, Germany – one of the most fabulous gaycation spots in Europe!
Located in the heart of the Bavarian Alps, Munich is the city where beer was invented – and its lively beer gardens are full of beautiful men and their bodacious bellies! It’s a bear hunter’s delight!
It is also one of the kinkiest cities in Europe – and no matter what your fetish, you’ll find a friend to fuck your hangover away! After all, you’ve got to do something to get rid of those carb calories!
Munich has lots of activities – from hiking trails through the nearby mountains to tons of water sports – either in the back room of the boys’ bars or on the beautiful Lake Starnberg.
You’ll also see fabulous castles, beautiful squares, and experience the cockalisiousness that is Octoberfest!
So, if you are ready for some hard core action with some strong German men, give in to your urges and let us take you on a wondrous voyage to Munich – it will make a man out of you!
Gaertnerplatz – Welcome To The Gayborhood in Gay Munich!
While most of the city is very gay friendly, Gaernerplatz is considered Munich’s official “Gay Village.”
You’ll find great restaurants, cool clubs, gay tattoo artists, adult movie theaters, and a near constant cruising scene. The joke around Gaernerplatz is that straights are “simply tolerated.”
There are several beer gardens, and everyone seems to be on cruise control. At the center of Gaertnerplatz are the vanilla bars and clubs, but as you head down the side streets, things start to get kinkier and much more hard core.
Of course you’ll find the typical cabarets and lots of drag queens and rent boys wherever you go. There are more than 30 bars, clubs, and saunas in a roughly four-block radius – so you should have no problem finding the prick you prefer!
If you are really hardcore or want to get into the leather scene look for a street named Mullerstrasse – but remember it’s not for the faint of heart. The German leather boys will whip you, beat you, bareback you and make you write bad checks!
The Gaertnerplatz is also where you’ll want to pick up a copy of the Munich Pink Pages – an up-to-date directory of all the current gay owned and gay friendly businesses in the city.
Deutsche Eiche Hotel
If you can afford it, you need to stay at the Deutsche Eiche Hotel. If you can’t afford it, you need to visit – and see if you can end up staying the night with a new friend who already has a room.
The Deutsche Eiche is more than a hotel – it’s an entire gaycation experience. It is completely gay owned and operated, and no straight people are allowed.
The hotel features its own raunchy bathhouses and saunas, as well as the hottest gay pick up bar in the city!
But why stop at the bar – guys cruise each other in the halls, elevators, and lobby at the Deutsche Eiche. They won’t let you bring your female friends, so if you are traveling with a fruit fly book somewhere else, send her shopping, and then hit the halls on your search for horny homos!
This is also the hotel Freddy Mercury stayed at when he visited Germany, and you’ll find various dedications to the late great Queen all over the hotel!
Held in late September and early October, the festival brings in tens of thousands of thirsty tourists who are ready to drink beer and eat spicy sausage. Every year there is an official “Gay Sunday” at Octoberfest, where the men come out to see just how much they can swallow!
Gay Sunday even features Gay Lederhosen events – for all you men who like your boys in tights!
There are also official gay beer halls in Octoberfest – the boys at the Braurosel are generally the hottest man candy around – but you’ll find plenty of areas sporting rainbow flags and giant pints of beer – because as we all know, size matters!
Just try to keep yourself at less than a gallon a day – unless you plan on hitting the piss bath bars later in the evening!
Christopher Street Day
More than 30,000 men come down to watch the parade – and bask in the strangeness. There are almost no typical gays or bears in the parade, which is instead full of a mixture of drag queens and men in Lederhosen!
Either way, they end up wearing tights!
Along the parade route most people come dressed in long boas, which are the traditional Christopher Street Day attire. If you don’t have your own – and really, you should – there will be dozens of street vendors who will to be happy to pimp your outfit with a beautiful boa you can call your own!
Nearly everyone wears heels or boots, and the entire event is completely dragalicious!
It doesn’t matter if you’ve been naughty or nice – Gay Santa is ready to stuff your stocking at the annual Munich Pink Christmas bazaar. Starting about two weeks before Noel, the Pink Christmas market is a giant pink and lavender area set up to sell nothing but gay friendly products.
It’s generally the most garish and brightest Christmas display you’ll ever see, complete with Drag Queen Santa, twinky elves and some of the campiest Christmas gifts you’ll ever see!
The Pink Christmas displays are popular with even the straightest Munich men, so you’ll have to wade through the crowds to see some of the hottest stalls.
There is everything and everything on display here – from gay jewelry to high fashion items and everything in between!
You’ll be able to have yourself a queer little Christmas!
Sitting on a hill overlooking the city, the castle looks like it should be on top of the most fabulous wedding cake in the world!
It was built by Bavarian King Ludwig II, who was obsessed with the views he would be able to have from his home 2,000 feet above the city. It was designed by a theater designer instead of an architect – which accounts for its many dramatic flairs!
If you are into water sports, Lake Starnberg is a must-see – assuming you are visiting Munich in the spring or summer.
During warm weather, the lake is filled with windsurfers and you can rent boards and sailboats all around the lake.
Waterskiing is also popular, and you’ll find lots of cute guys in kayaks and canoes up and down the lake itself – which is at the center of Germany’s famous “Five Lakes District.”
All in all, it’s a great place to get wet and wild with the boys!
The best place in town to spend an afternoon sipping drinks and watching the beautiful boys go by is the Marienplatz. It is one of the most beautiful squares in Europe, and is full of fagtabulous cafes and delectably delicious restaurants.
At the center of the square is a giant statue of the Virgin Mary – which is where it gets its name. On the front of the square is the Glockenspiel, a giant and famous city clock on top of a fagtasatic neo-Gothic tower.
Most of the city’s festivals are held here – including the annual Munich Founder’s Day Celebration. At the back of the square is the Town Hall. You’ll also find some of the tackiest tourist shops in Munich on the streets around the Marienplatz.
Also known as the Church of St. Peter, the Peterskirche is the oldest and most ornate church in Munich.
The inside of the church is decorated with paintings by the Grand Masters over the past six centuries.
You can also climb up to the top of the church and get one of the most breathtaking views of the city outside of Ludwig’s Castle. You’ll have to climb a lot of stairs to get there – so make sure you haven’t been hitting the beer gardens too hard before you go!
