As a gay couple, Berlin is incredibly welcoming, liberating and a lot of fun.
We found that compared to the UK, the culture here allowed for much more open self expression and the people have a very ‘matter of fact’ and ‘no shame’ attitude when it comes to having some ‘fun’ with your partner or someone new in the city.
It’s therefore no surprise that it has been said the gay sauna in Berlin is one of the best in Europe and if you’ve not been to one before, Berlin could be the place to try!
However, what is surprising is that there are currently only one gay sauna in Berlin: Der Boiler.
Gay Sauna in Berlin: Der Boiler
Penned as one of the most visited gay saunas in Europe, Der Boiler is something that many gay travellers tick off their list during their visit to Berlin.
They offer a large jacuzzi , steam sauna, two Finland (dry) saunas, and much more including spa treatments and massages on request.
They also have private spaces and can provide you with everything you need to keep safe.
More recently they have extended their wellness program to offer relaxing yoga and gymnastics classes in their new yoga room
If you get peckish they even offer cold and hot drinks at the bar, sandwich, cakes, including some hot food on request.
Make sure you check their event page for special nights etc.
