Frankfurt Gay Bars

Frankfurt is the financial capital of Germany and has a reputation for being a little dull, but that's not to say you can't find a thriving LGBTQ+ community in the city. Visually, Frankfurt is more like an American city, with many skyscrapers, however spend a little time there and you'll find the city has a heart.

The Switchbaord Bar.Cafe.Kultur has been known and loved as a cafe and cultural center of the AHF in Alten Gasse 36 since 1988. It was planned by the Frankfurt gay groups and launched together with the AHF. The Swichtboard gastronomy is organized and managed by full-time employees, the daily counter service is provided by around 30 volunteers - without their support, the SWITCHBOARD would not be possible. They take care of the well-being of the guests and provide them with drinks and food. In addition, the bar team does small errands and repairs independently and supports the full-time employee in their tasks.
