Germany's pride celebration is called Christopher Street Day, named after the famous riots. Parades, bar nights, wild parties and other various gatherings happen all over the city towards the end of July. Naturally in Cologne most of the activities are focused around the Bermuda Triange on Schaaferstraße (the "Veedelsfest" is the most raging), but the celebration spreads into the old city and other parts of town. Though the parade is the high point, the two weeks leading up to it are full of readings, panel discussions, barbecues, and various other activities for gays of all stripes.
