Nudity Goes Legal In Munich

•, Cecilia Rodriguez
 So goes the general reaction in Europe these days to the news that the city of Munich has given enthusiastic approval to allowing naked people to stroll freely and to sunbathe in public spaces.

This doesn’t mean that just anybody who feels like taking his or her clothes off can strip down everywhere. The city, according to the Atlantic Cities, has designated six official “Urban Naked Zones” in parks offering privacy, but also only minutes away from the busy city center.

“While these areas’ locations in parkland gives them a degree of seclusion, none of them are fenced off or hidden away,” the site reports. “One spot is barely 10 minutes from Munich’s main square, located along a stream to which tourists flock.”
The situation arose due to the recent expiration of legislation controlling nude sunbathing in Bavaria, of which Munich is the capital. City leaders had to decide whether to allow sun-seekers to strip in public.

Around the continent, Germans have the reputation of being “nudist obsessive” as well as “tanning obsessive.” It’s no surprise that many nudist beaches around Europe are frequented mostly by Germans — as are saunas and Turkish baths,  where it’s a safe assumption that the most comfortable naked body walking nearby belongs to a German.

“Germans are often considered to be more at one with nature than us prudish Brits,” the Mail Online commented.
