Lisbon – Portugal

Lisbon Portugal is known for its mild climate year round. That’s why it’s a great destination to escape the winter cold! We didn’t find any festivals for lesbians, but Lisbon is very LGBT and lesbian-friendly. There are quite a few lesbian bars and parties, so you’re very likely to find a great place to go to when in Lisbon. The Bairro Alto is the most famous lesbian and gay area in the city. Located on top of one of the seven hills of Lisbon, Bairro Alto literally means ‘high neighborhood’. Lesboa Party is a famous lesbian event that is organized in Lisbon. This year, the party is held on December 2nd. The perfect date for a Lisbon city trip?

Vienna – Austria

Vienna is a romantic and beautiful winter destination in Europe. As an extra, there are also lesbian parties organized by Pinked. The venue of choice is G-Spot bar. The 1st of December, they have a big party planned. Vienna has more to offer for lesbians and the city is home to a few lesbian bars as well. The women’s café Frauencafé is a lesbian bar that has been around since 1977 and it still is today.

Prague – Czech Republic

The capital of Czech is alive and kicking. Today more than ever, lesbians can easily find an interesting bar or café to have a few drinks among like-minded people. Every Friday and Saturday Jampa Dampa bar is for women only and you can attend the Ladies Secret Night Parties. The bar looks cool and it’s definitely worth a visit when you visit Prague. Freedom Night, another event for queer women is regularly held in Prague, Brno, and Bratislava. Keep an eye on their Facebook page to see upcoming events. We will definitely be keeping an eye on Prague for our future travels!

So these are the best lesbian Europe winter destinations! Keep an eye open for our upcoming post for next summer. We’re already researching the best lesbian festivals for the summer of 2018 and we’re looking forward to attending some!
