Vauxhall complements Soho by adding more pubs, discos and entertaining opportunities for the gay communities to enjoy.

Berlin is awesome when it comes to gay districts and festivals. It’s simply a city that has it all. Gay libraries, museums, magazines, parks, parades, it’s really the Heaven of the Gay people here! Schöneberg, Nollendorfplatz, Kreuzberg are just three of the areas in Berlin devoted to the gay community. Here is where most of the gay people meet up to go to fancy clubs, classy restaurants or simply enjoy each other’s company and socialize in squares that have been a meeting point for the GLBT communities for tens of years.
