Schwules Museum hotels
Schwules Museum Berlin
Schwules Museum is the world’s oldest museum commemorating lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender lifestyles, having grown out of an exhibition at the Berlin Museum that focused on the subject in 1984. Officially established just one year later, the museum is located above one of Berlin’s most vibrant homosexual nightclubs and contains works by and about members of the LGBT community. Included amongst this indelible museum’s one-of-a-kind exhibitions are displays dedicated to famous homosexual artists such as Marlene Dietrich and Oscar Wilde, as well as periodicals, videos, autographs, and over 10,000 books, some of which date back to the nineteenth century. Perhaps the museum’s most sunning exhibit is its permanent one, Two Hundred Years of Gay History, which chronicles the worldwide LGBT experience from 1790 to 1990.
- Enjoy a night at Schwuz, the club located directly below the museum, which includes three sprawling dance floors.
- With a coffee and snack at the Cafe Melitta Sundstrom located right in front of the museum.
- Explore the museum’s extensive library filled with books, historic documents, and research materials helping visitors understand the history of homosexuality.
The museum is located at Mehringdamm 61 behind the Cafe Melitta Sundstrom. Public transportation is very good in Berlin—only one ticket is required in order to ride the city’s wide-sweeping and efficient train, tram, buse, and fairy services. Both the U-Bahn, underground, and S-Bahn, aboveground, trains have stops located near Schwules. Taxis are also widely available throughout the city centre. Berlin’s traffic is manageable and visitors may find it most convenient to rent a car for their exploration of the city. Additionally, biking is becoming quite popular in the area and rental shops are available throughout Berlin.
