The 2016 Edition of our Gay Frankfurt Guide features the latest information on Frankfurt’s bars, clubs, restaurants and hotels, together with complete details on the top events of the Season.
Frankfurt is one of our editors favourite destinations. Despite being a compact city, Frankfurt benefits from being the financial centre of Germany, attracting some of the best hotels and restaurants from around the world. The gay scene is compact and easy to navigate, with most bars located on three streets that form an apex to create the gay “Bermuda Triangle”, namely, Alte Gasse, north of Konstablerwache train station and by the intersection of the Zeil pedestrian mall and Konrad Adenauer Strasse.
The bar scene gets busy early with after work and pre-dinner drinks kicking off from 7.30pm. Visitors who like to dine out will be spoilt for choice. Head to Romerberg Square where you will find some of the finest traditional german food or take a trip to Frankfurt’s South Bank – Sachsenhausen with its cobbled streets and charming taverns offering the best in Wurst and Apple Wine.
Weekends are the busiest with Frankfurt’s only gay club, CK Studio hosting regular themed parties from 1am to 7am. Gay guys begin their night at Lucku’s bar with cocktails flowing early. During the Summer months the terrace is full all afternoon. Those looking for something a little more hardcore should head to The Stall, Frankfurt’s longest running cruise bar with a busy dark room full of hot locals and tourists.
Finally, no visit to Frankfurt would be complete without taking in the River Cruise. It is a great way to see the city and its impressive skyline (kicknamed Meinhatten). For some gay history, pay a vist to the “Mahnmal Homosexuellenverfolgung” a memorial to gay and lesbian victims under the Nazi regime, located at Klaus-Mann Square near Konrad Adenauer Strasse.
