When it comes to gay saunas and cruising bars, gay Berlin is Europe’s capital of kink! The city has a no-holds barred cruise and sex club scene, so whatever your fetish is, you’ll be able to find it here. Berlin is packed with gay cruising bars and sex clubs, many of which, such as New Action and Mutschmann’s, can be found in in the Schöneberg area.
Meanwhile in Friedrichshain, Lab.Oratory is the most famous and popular sex club in Berlin, found in the basement of Berghain. The Friday happy hour is always rammed – in more ways than one – but even if you just fancy a drink you can still pop along. Just be prepared for what you might encounter!
And while many of Berlin’s gay saunas have recently closed, Der Boiler continues to pull in the crowds, making it one of Europe’s most-visited bathhouses.
Hustlaball and Folsom festivals
Events-wise, Berlin attracts kinksters from all over the world for a number of leading fetish gatherings. Folsum Europe, held every September, celebrates leather and BDSM. While the world-famous Hustaball event takes place the following month.
Many monthly kink club nights take place, so watch out for those, too.
