Gay in Cologne - a meeting point for gays and lesbians
Cologne have a large LGBT scenes and although the city itself "only" has about 1 million inhabitants, it is still a hot spot for gays and lesbians from across the Rhine region. Around the popular Rudolfplatz you will find countless gay bars for every taste. Often the area between Heumarkt and Rudolfplatz is therefore also called the gay Bermuda triangle. Schaafenstraße is the epicenter of queer bar culture in Cologne. Every weekend gays and lesbians crowd each other from one bar to the next, and especially in summer it's like a street party every night. The gay party scene has a lot to offer. The best parties take place at regular intervals (usually monthly) in the hottest locations.
