Cooling off during those hot summer days just got a little easier, at least if you’re in Munich.
You are now free to ‘take it all off,’ (figuratively and literally), as the city just recently legalized public nudity, introducing six designated nudist zones. While these areas still grant some level of privacy, they aren’t that far from tourist hotspots. In fact, one of them is located just a few minutes away from the city center.
This news came briefly after the statewide law prohibiting nude sunbathing, was dissolved. Although there’s been an ongoing debate regarding the matter, the government stripped the city of any ‘no-to-naked’ laws, allowing for folks to strip it all off (if they so wish).
The city has never been shy to public nudity neither! Displays of physical erm, liberalism is not unusual around Munich. In fact, they even hold events dedicated to it! Check out Braunlage, Germany’s homage to nudity and winter sports here (we tried to make it as suitable for work as possible, but to be safe we’ll put a NSFW disclosure)!
So next time you’re in Munich, don’t be too surprised if you see a few folks letting it all hang out!
