CSD Berlin Pride Arrival Party

Die Begrüßung, Berlin! We’ll start our celebration in Germany for Berlin Pride, known by the locals as Christopher Street Day, or CSD Berlin. After settling into your hotel, come meet your hosts and fellow OUTbounders. Join us for a welcome cocktail party before heading out into the city to join roughly half a million people celebrating the start of CSD Berlin! After all, Berlin is Europe’s premier gay and party destination, so would you expect anything less? We’re staying in the heart of Berlin’s gay district of Schöneberg, so come and go as you please. Enjoy all that CSD Berlin has to offer however you want!

CSD Berlin Parade

Come OUTbound today for CSD Berlin’s main event, Gay Pride Berlin’s pride parade with colorful floats, live music and one of the biggest parties in Europe! The parade runs from Kurfürstendamm, just a few blocks from our host hotel, the Axel Hotel Berlin, all the way to the famed Brandenburg Gate, ending with a lively concert which always welcomes special guest stars and goes well into the night. Go bar hopping down the main ‘drag’ Fuggerstraße, hitting all the famous clubs like Prinzknecht, Woof Berlin, Heile Welt and Bull. Our host hotel is just a few minutes walk away, so you do you and OUTbound away!

CSD Berlin Pride Festival

OUTbound today your way! Spend your last full day in Berlin immersed in all that the CSD Berlin Pride Festival has to offer, or venture out and experience the smaller event called Kreuzberg Pride, which is held each year alongside Dyke March at the same time as CSD Berlin. These prides have a more local vibe if you’re looking to keep things a little more chill. Either way, there’s literally something for everyone at one of the most inclusive and popular pride events of Europe, so let loose and experience your pride the Deutsch way! Tonight is the CSD Berlin closing party, so make every minute count!

Free Day In Berlin

Spend your final morning in Berlin enjoying one of the many LGBTQ+ cafés along the Motzstraße, do a little shopping at KaDeWe, the largest department store in continental Europe, or just sleep in and rest up after three full days of CSD Berlin festivities. The morning is yours. Explore the area around our hotel with your free time. Schöneberg is a neighborhood known since the 1920s for its vibrant LGBTQ+ community that loves to show off its beautiful colors, from bars and cafés to galleries and street celebrations. This afternoon, we’ll check out of the Axel Hotel Berlin and transfer to our ship.


Be sure to join us on Friday for a special “Welcome to Berlin” cocktail reception at our host hotel. Come meet your OUTbounders as we kick off our weekend of Berlin Pride in the heart of the gay district, Schöneberg. Since the 1920s, Schöneberg has been the center of gay life in Berlin, and centrally located within this neighborhood is the Axel Hotel, our host hotel for CSD Berlin. For an authentic neighborhood experience, come to Flohmarkt Schöneberg, and lose yourself among the countless stalls. Brimming with second-hand treasures and gorgeous vintage fashions, the flea market adjacent to the town hall gathers the alternative spirit the city is so famous for.

Axel Hotel Berlin

Our OUTbound host hotel is none other than the famous Axel Hotel Berlin, located in Schöneberg, heart of Berlin’s gay scene. The Axel Hotel is fascinating for its cosmopolitan spirit, design, comfort and its excellent service. The charm and elegant mix of gold on black, overlay and textures make the Axel a unique space. With uniquely design rooms for the LGBTQ+ traveler, the Axel is fully equipped to provide our OUTbound guests with maximum comfort and a different stay. The surrounding neighborhood of Schöneberg loves to show off its beautiful colors, from bars and cafés to galleries and street celebrations.

We are OUTbound for one of Europe’s biggest and most famous Gay Pride festivals, CSD Berlin! We’ll start our celebration in Germany for Gay Pride Berlin, known by the locals as Christopher Street Day, or CSD Berlin. We’ll spend three full days celebrating one of the most eclectic pride celebrations in all of Europe. Berlin has one of the greatest gay cultures in Europe and is party central with even the “straight” clubs having a polysexual, mixed crowd with few boundaries in terms of sex and gender. It’s also home to Berghain, often voted the best nightclub in the world, that has to be seen to be believed.

On Christopher Street Day, hundreds of thousands of people demonstrate for the rights of LGBTQ+ people with a great parade, colorful floats, live music and one of the biggest parties in Europe. The main event, the CSD Berlin Pride Parade, starts at noon on Saturday at the intersection of Kurfürstendamm and Joachimsthaler Straße, just a few blocks from our host hotel, the Axel Hotel Berlin. The parade winds along Berlin’s central park, the Tiergarten, passing Wittenbergplatz, Lützowplatz and Siegessäule. The procession comes to ends at the iconic Brandenburg Gate where a final rally takes place at 5:00 pm and the party really starts!
