On the Northern Alpine Foreland at the river Isar in the south of Bavaria lies the most populated city and capital of the German state, Munich. The city land area of 310 square kilometres is home to around 1. million people.
Munich is considered the most expensive city in the country, a price worth paying for the privilege of living in a forefront of technological developments (being a major international centre for business, research, engineering, and modern medicine) while maintaining its rich cultural heritage that has said to outrank the one in Berlin.
Munich does not have a designated single red light district. Rather, the city has primary adult locations treated as unofficial RLDs.
How to find the RLD
Stay safe in the RLD
The streets of Munich are very safe to walk through the night, even in areas with adult establishments. Most people describe such areas as seedy but are never unsafe. Tourists can expect walking through the areas of Hauptbahnhof and Stahlgruberring without having to feel threatened, despite these places often being jam-packed. Overall, there are not so many reported dangers and violence in the adult venues, except for those little nuisances like the beggars.
Adult entertainment offerings in Munich are worth experiencing for they are unlike no other. Brothels, for instance, are quite different from other cities having seedy and illegal establishments. In fact, brothels in this city such as Leierkasten (the largest and classiest one in Munich) are a popular choice for people seeking sexual pleasure, contrary to most cities that have street prostitution as their main option for adult entertainment. Other adult settings to check out for are strip clubs, street prostitution, adult cinemas, massage parlours, and swinger clubs.
Street prostitution is said to be well-organized in Munich wherein prices are a considerably lesser value compared to those imposed in brothels. Hauptbahnhof is one of the few places that street prostitution is available in the city.
Prostitution in Germany is legal, giving the state the power to control and enforce the business that comes with it. It also serves as an action in an attempt to improve the situation dealt by prostitutes. Most aspects of prostitution have been legalized including but not limited to operating of brothels, advertising, and posting of job offers through HR companies linked to the sex trade.
Illegal links to prostitution are the admission of girls to work as sex prostitutes under the age of 18, contracting services from a prostitute who has not reached the legal age of 18.
LGBT rights in Germany have vastly improved throughout the years. In the early times, same-sex sexual activity was deemed as illegal, which led to the persecution of thousands of homosexuals. It has since been decriminalized in 1969. Since 2001, Germany has catered to the registration of partnerships of same sex couples, giving them almost the same benefits as the married opposite-sex couples. While joint adoption has still yet to be legalised, same-sex step adoption has already been passed as a law.
The changing of legal genders in documents is allowed given that transsexuals have undergone surgical alteration. Germany is the first European country to enact a law that let its citizens choose the option of being neither male nor female on their legal birth certificate, benefiting the hermaphrodites. Protection against discrimination of homosexuals in employment, provision of goods and services is also enforced in all of Germany.
One of Germany’s hippest cities, Munich offers a wide variety of options in terms of nightlife venues.
With the reformed laws on homosexual acts, gay marriage, and anti-discriminatory rulings protecting the LGBT, Munich has attracted a significant number of gays and lesbians, as reflected on the vibrant and lively gay spots of the city. The gay life is focused on the areas of Glockenbachviertel, around the Muellerstrasse near the Sendlinger Tor station, and Reichenbachstraße.
General Attitude Towards Gays
A relaxing and fun-loving place to be is what Munich is to the LGBT community. Intimate moments shared between gay couples such as kissing and holding hands in public do not cause any unwanted attention, as compared to cities that still cling to the old-fashioned ways. The annual Gay Pride celebration or the Christopher Street Day is particularly huge in Munich, in the memory of the first gay uprising that took place at the Stonewall Inn in New York and the fight against discrimination and exclusion of the LGBT.
