Colorful & open minded

Cologne is colourful — and for many years it’s been an immovable standpoint for the issues affecting the LGBTQIA+ community. That’s because Cologne actively practices tolerance, a cosmopolitan perspective and peaceful coexistence. Whether it’s Pink Carnival or Christopher Street Day, the Schaafenstraßenfest street fair or the informative contact points — Cologne’s heart is in the right place. And the city offers you an abundance of events, gay and lesbian cafés, bars, clubs and other gathering places such as Cologne’s Bermuda Triangle and the events around CSD, such as the ColognePride parade.

Flashy, flashier, CSD: the annual ColognePride parade celebrates Christopher Street Day

Cologne’s Christopher Street Parade is the biggest in Europe. The rainbow-hued two-week programme of more than 100 events celebrates, commemorates, represents and presents the issues of the LGBTQIA+ community on all channels — to promote human rights, tolerance and the peaceful coexistence of people of every orientation.


The colourful mile

Cologne’s Bermuda Triangle houses seven bars within 150 metres — it’s your rainbow-hued party mile with countless stopoff points.
