    Hey Guys, I will be studying in Freiburg, Germany this coming Fall and I think that it will be a great opportunity to break out of my shell and little. I was wondering if anyone knows anything about the gay scene there. I am not sure how I will approach it or meet any guys. I feel like I should be more cautious bc it is a foreign country, even though i do speak german. Can anyone help me out?

    Here are two websites that can help you with Freiburg.
    www.GayRomeo.com LOTS of Germans on this site, as it used to be operated from Germany. and http://www.cruisinggays.com/Freiburg/c/bars/ If you join GayRomeo (can be free, just limited) you will find 2,622 users listed for Freiburg, so I think you will find someone to connect with there. The largest gay mecca close by is Stuttgart.
    I have lived in Germany for almost 15 years total, so happy to help with whatever other questions you might have.
    Cheers,
    Michael

    Freiburg is a little University Town, so the gay scene willprobably limited. The largest gay communities in Germany are in Cologne, Berlin, Munich and Hamburg. More or less in this order.

    For chatting with people gayromeo is a good choice. You can see at a glance how many people are registered per city, which gives you a good indication on the gay scene! ;-)

    Happy to help.

    I dated a guy once from Freiburg who was in LA for the summer. It didn't end well. He ended up cheating on me with this guy I introduced him to. I hope you have better luck with the men from Freiburg than I had and I hope he doesn't have smelly feet either.

    Being American in Germany is probably similar to being German in the US. Whenever somebody recognizes your accent, you will get his short attention. And at the end it's like always your personal attitude.

    If you like, send me your gr account name by pm and i'll try to guide you through.

    First of all: Congratulations man! You made a great choice going to Freiburg!! I stayed there for a year and everything was great there, lots of students, parties, a great place for living, lots of things to see and do in the surroundings....

    Unfortunately, gay life is very limited there. There are not any gay bars. Long time ago there was one called "räng teng teng", nowadays is not, but still can be found some. Always has old-school music but the crowd is young, mostly students. I recommend it.

    There's disco called Parabel Club (http://www.parabelclub.de/), it's very new, just opened when I had to leave, there are gay parties once a month I think. Another one is Waldsee, it's not in the town center but also organizes a gay party once a month (I think it's run by the same community of Parabel).

    I saw you opened an account in GayRomeo, great choice.

    If you need some advice in general about Freiburg, just ask me. Enjoy it!!
