LGBTIQ Guided Tour Munich

Discover Munich's Vibrant and Inclusive Culture

Who would have thought this? 


Munich, of all places, the charming “village of a million” in the south of the republic, which is often accused of being conservative, tradition-conscious and perhaps also a bit big-headed, is a colorful, open and diverse metropolis. Today, after a long time full of hurdles and setbacks, Munich has arrived in the reality of the most diverse forms of life.

This LGBT tour is about the way, the struggle and the great times of Munich as one of the most liberal cities in the world.


Homosexual love has existed since time immemorial. Different factors, such as the centuries-long dominance of the churches, reverse the initially positive view of homosexuality into a negative one. ” Being different” now has become somewhat bad, somewhat tainted, somewhat sinful. It was not different in Munich, where we are telling the story of lesbians and gays on a walk through the Gärtnerplatzviertel and the Glockenbachviertel. It is about the beginnings, about quite liberal times in the middle of the 19th century, but also about the harsh setbacks only a little later. Not forgotten on this LGBT tour is the phase of oppression and persecution by the National Socialists, which cost thousands of gay men their lives, simply because of their sexual orientation.


Looking back – with some melancholy


Our LGBT Tour Munich also revives the great times when a Freddie Mercury appreciated the liberal atmosphere of the city so much that he lived here permanently for a while. The celebration of his 39th birthday at the “Old Miss Henderson”, where the video for his hit “Living on my own” was shot the day after, will remain unforgotten. Or the legendary plush bar Mylord in Ickstattstraße, where landlady Marietta served behind the counter until its closure in 2010. It attracted numerous personalities such as Rainer Werner FassbinderHildegard Knef, and many others. People like her or the famous landlady Gusti of the “Ochsengarten”, Germany’s first leather and fetish bar, have contributed with their courage and openness to the fact that today we can walk through doors they opened.

Come with us on this LGBT Tour Munich, which is full of emotions, has a touch of wickedness, but should also help to learn new things and perhaps see the unknown with completely different eyes.
