The couple were at a club in Niederdorf and were later on a bench on the Hirschenplatz.

The attackers started by verbally abusing the two men with homophobic slurs before launching their attack.

Both suffered cuts. One had his nose broken and teeth knocked out – he remains in hospital.

The attack was broken up by bouncers from a nearby club. The five men then fled.

Police are asking for witnesses to contact them.
