Berlin has been a pioneer of gay and lesbian rights since the late 19th Century, despite the notorious "Section 175" of the German penal code, which criminalised male homosexuality for decades after the Second World War. Explore Berlin's gay neighbourhood, Schöneberg, home of Marlene Dietrich and chronicled by Christopher Isherwood and Otto Dix. Visit the Eldorado, one of Berlin's oldest gay and transvestite bars and the memorial to homosexuals persecuted by the Nazis. Find out how openly queer and transgendered individuals found assistance from Magnus Hirschfeld, whose Institute for Sexual Science was shut down in 1933., its library destroyed in the Nazi book-burning. Walk through the Tiergarten, the city's best-known gay meeting spot in the shadow of the Berlin Wall. Find out how queer figures from the Prussian King Friedrich the Great to today's openly gay mayor Klaus Wowereit have shaped the history of Berlin, and finish the tour at Berlin's Gay Museum in vibrant Kreuzberg.
