Gay and lesbian scene in Düsseldorf

Düsseldorf is an open-minded city – the lively gay, lesbian and transsexual scene also contributes to this. With its regular events, it offers residents of Düsseldorf and visitors to the city great entertainment.

Anyone wishing to meet like-minded people can choose between the many cafés, bars and clubs of the gay and lesbian scene. There are also regular gay and lesbian events in the city, such as Christopher Street Day. As the international gay and lesbian holiday all over the world, Christopher Street Day is also celebrated in Düsseldorf. The Johannes-Rau-Platz is the centre of the street festival with a traditional demonstration.

Regular events worth seeing take place the whole year round – for example, the “Tuntenlauf” (Queer Run) at Carnival time or “Pink Monday” at the Biggest Funfair on the Rhine.
