OUT*side Program


OUT*side is now also on Instagram and Facebook There you can get to know our team and the trainers and find the latest information. Like and follow to us!

As part of our project, OUT*side – movement and sport for trans*, inter*, non-binary folks and women* friends, we worked together with partners TriQ, Gladt e.V. and Sonntags-Club to organize a range of free health-related activities and workshops on empowerment through movement at locations throughout Friedrichshain and Kreuzberg in 2017. This project is sponsored by the district of Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg's planning and coordination department for health.

Training sessions are open to people of all levels of fitness, free of charge and not bound to a club. As of September 2018, all of our coaches are trans*, inter* and/or non-binary.

Program 2020 - Berlin-Outdoor

Program 2020 - ONLINE LIVE Trainings ((in autum we go back with the Online Trainings)

CoronaVirus Time

We have decided to offer online sport trainings for trans*, inter* and nonbinary people as part of the OUT*side project. We know that they can be strongly affected by the current "shutdown" and especially by health impairments and consequences. For this purpose, we have the OUT*side project. Because especially in this time we think it is important to pay attention to each other and try to provide a safer space.

Now you don´t have to be in Berlin to joy us! :-P

(for trans*, inter*, and non-binary folks)

Date: 16 August 2020
Meeting point:
S-Bahn station Gesundbrunnen, platform 9 (in the rear of the train)
9.39 am with the regional train RE3 (direction Schwedt) to Angermünde
Language: English and german

Around the Wolletzsee

In August there is again a circular hike around a lake. However, it is more demanding than our last tour around the Liepnitzsee, because it is at least 10 km longer - a total of about 25 km and requires a running time of about 5 hours.

We start in Angermünde, leave the town in northern direction and reach the small river Welse via lanes. Here we walk along the shore through a mixed forest and end up on the northern shore of Lake Wolletz. Also here we walk along the lake shore until we reach the small village of Wolletz. From Wolletz we use a little frequented road with a view of the lake, then we reach the so-called Holy Lake and arrive in Altkünkendorf right after that. There we will rest. For those interested, there is an information point in Altkünkendorf about the World Heritage Site Buchenwald Grumsin (which we will take for an autumn hike). In Altkünkendorf there is also the opportunity to climb the church tower with a wonderful panoramic view of the landscape. Afterwards we will head back towards the lake, first using dirt roads and finally reaching the lake shore again in the Angermünder city forest. Once we have reached the Gehegemühle, we leave the Wolletzsee and walk back to Angermünde station, where the regional train will take us to Berlin.

About the ticket: In order to keep the travel costs low, we recommend the Brandenburg-Berlin-Ticket. With a maximum use of 5 persons, the fare is EUR 6.60 return.

Please indicate on your registration if you want to use the ticket.
I will do the hike together with Julian*Noah.

Coacher: Nora (66), Transwoman, board member of TransInterQueer e.V. For more than 10 years I have been travelling in Brandenburg and have got to know fascinating landscapes through my numerous hikes. I would like to pass on my rich knowledge and experience within the framework of a hiking group. I would like my fascination to be contagious. See more...

Tuesday 1.9. Ayers Rock Schöneberg
Meeting point: Ayers Rock Felsen at the playground in Mariendorf (entrance Richterstraße, 12105 Berlin). Link to map here.

On four evenings, we will climb at different outdoor bouldering walls in Berlin. Instead of a rope and harness, we'll climb in a safe jumping height with boulder mats (crashpads) underneath! We'll warm up together and go through a few basic climbing techniques and safety points. Then you are free to try different "problems" – from simple to tricky. Bouldering strengthens many different muscle groups, and helps increase your overall strength, endurance and concentration skills. Movements can be slow and steady or quick and dynamic. You decide what level and type of climbing is the best fit for you. You'll need to bring comfortable clothing, a water bottle and athletic or climbing shoes. The event will be canceled in case of heavy rain. 

Coach: Finn Rebelle, our Bouldern coach is 31 genderqueer, passionate climbing trainer & fitness coach, founder of Out*side cooperation partner Queerclimb
