About Cologne Gay Pride (CSD)

Cologne Gay Pride or CSD (Christoper Street Day) is the largest annual LGBT demonstration in Europe, with around 80 floats taking part. Since 1991, the Cologne Gay Pride/CSD has traditionally been held in Cologne (Köln) on the first weekend in July. The street festivals take place from the Friday until the Sunday in the old town, culminating with the parade on Sunday afternoon.

Program of Cologne Gay Pride (CSD)

This year, Sexy, Greenkomm, and Naughtycontrol will be organising the four-day festivities, with more than 30 DJs, theme parties, and a vibrant parade in store. 

The Cologne Gay Pride Parade will take place on Sunday, July 7 and starts at the Deutz Suspension Bridge at 12pm. People start to gather around 11:30, however, so we suggest heading there early. It will then wind its way through the old town, passing Heumarkt, Ehrenstrasse and concluding at city's main cathedral, Köln Dom. 

In addition to the main parade, CSD Köln will host a range of indoor and outdoor events including the iconic Sexy Pride Land party. This will take place on Saturday, July 7 in Cologne's famous Boothaus Club. Doors open at 10pm, and the night will feature ESC-winner NETTA Barzilai live on stage - yes you read correctly! Along with this, expect four dance floors, 12 world-famous DJs, and an amusement park.

Monday sees the legendary Babylon Pool Party return to Badehaus at 10am. Tickets are only available at the door, so we suggest arriving early. Because who wants to miss out on a line-up that includes Karl Kay, Alexio, and Samuel D? We sure don't. 

Convinced yet? We certainly are, and we look forward to seeing you in Köln very soon! Tschüss!

Stay gay in...
