We meet once per month on the second Tuesday at 7 p.m. at the Magnus Hirschfeld Centrum (mhc-Café), Borgweg 8, 22303 Hamburg. We enter the meeting room at about 7.30h and the session ends at about 10 p.m. After that, some enjoy staying in the mhc-Café until it closes at 11h.

CORONA  requires obeying some rules:

Meeting rules:

  • Requirement to wear FFP2 nose and mouth protection
  • Freedom from Covid-19 symptoms
  • Reserve your seat, because the number of seats is limited.

When does Switch accept reservations?

As soon as our newsletter is out the weekend before a meeting, because we would like to ensure equal chances for everybody.
Tip: subscribe to our newsletter. It is in German, but it includes the link for you to reserve your seat and you cannot miss the start of the reservation period. If you cannot use the link for technical or language reasons, you may exceptionally reserve a seat via email.

You will find us at the mhc-Café to your right as you enter. Or follow the bar, turn left, then straight ahead through the doorway between the bar and the winding stairs, turn right and enter our room through the door to your right just before the descending stairs if you should be late. Too complicated? Ask the bartender. Welcome!

P.S.: You do not like the idea of walking into the cafe on your own? Drop us a line in due time and ask us to pick you up at the front door. However: You may just come in, there is nothing to worry about!

Freedom from barriers:
You can access our meeting room and the mhc cafe free from barriers, but the washrooms are only accessible via stairs and are not accessible toilets in any way.
