Nudity no longer naughty in Munich

One of Germany’s largest cities has legalised public nudity

Germany’s third largest city, Munich, has legalised public nudity by introducing six designated nudist zones.

Since last autumn – when statewide laws stopping nude sunbathing expired – the issue of public nudity has been debated in the city.

It has now been decided that nudists are officially welcome to strip.

The six designated nudist areas are not fenced off or hidden away, although their location in parkland grants them a degree of privacy.

One nudist zone is situated in a main tourist spot along a stream, which is barely 10 minutes away from Munich’s main square.

Public nudity in Munich has gone on for years, and it is common to see people walking around unclothed in several spots in the city, such as the Englischer Garten, and various spots along the Isar River.

Nudity is not restricted to Munich; the practice is common across Germany, where the first naturist beach was set up back in 1920.

The country is famed for its love of all activities that involve FKK – Freikörperkultur (Free Body Culture, or plain nudity to you and me), said Telegraph Travel writer Adrian Bridge, who reported on the Naked Sledding World Championship held in the spa town of Braunlage recently.

  1. Actually, a temporary national law prohibiting public nudity just expired and this is a response to CONTROL nudity, not freeing more folks to enjoy it.

    Many see this as a step forward, but actually it is an effort to prevent MORE people from being nude in public as is now legal wherever ordinances like this have NOT been applied.

    NOT a victory, just a smaller step backwards for clothes freedom than a total ban. Now local municipalities are permitted to prevent or allow nudity as they wish.

    Let’s keep this in perspective, folks. Still, MUCH better than in most places!
