It seems that everyone and their mother is moving to Berlin these days, and with good reason. As summer approaches it’s hard not to be charmed and seduced by the vibe of the city. The many green spaces begin to bloom again, providing space for the residents and tourists alike to relax in a way that is almost trademarked. Berliners take to the streets in colorful droves, outrageous outfits are seen in abundance, as are cheap beers bought from late shops which dot the city. Cafes spill out onto the sidewalk, and at night the city hums with the energy of a million restless revelers, eager to experience the world-famous nightlife which Berlin has become synonymous with.
Two simple facts – Berlin is a great city to be gay in, and Berlin is a great city to live in. What was once the capital of one of the most oppressive regimes in history is now a flourishing monument of acceptance, tolerance, and celebration. Berlin has it all – safe, beautiful neighborhoods, a thriving LGBTQ community, incredible green spaces, delicious restaurants and bars by the thousands, salacious parties and cultural events unrivaled anywhere in the world, and one of the biggest Pride celebrations in Europe.
