Germany has many nude beaches and Germans love nothing better than going in the buff, who can blame them, it’s the best feeling in the world really.
Nude bathing has a special German name, of course: FKK, which stands for Freikörperkultur, which stands for free body culture.
1. Ahlbeck Beach — Usedom
Ahlbeck Beach is located near the island’s trio, known as Imperial Spas, of popular seaside resorts. Nicknamed Sunny Island, this Baltic Sea spot is split between Germany and Poland and boasts more average sunlight hours than just about any other spot in either country. So, it’s basically made for nudists in search of the perfect tan.
2. Buhne 16 — Kampen, Germany
Located on the western shore of Sylt Island, Buhne 16 is considered Germany’s oldest nude beach. And even though plenty of other local beaches are also nude-friendly, Germans and tourists still flock to Buhne 16 for its history and laid-back atmosphere. Striped blue and white chairs are notoriously scattered everywhere.
3. Feldmochinger See
You can take a swim in your birthday suit in Munich’s largest lake, the Feldmochinger See, which is also known for its excellent water quality. Another great option is the Feringa Lake; located in the north of Munich, it also offers a large and secluded area reserved for naturists
4. Hamburg Sommerbad Volksdorf
Germany’s island of Sylt packs in family friendly beaches, dog beaches and nudist beaches into its slim anchor shape. The nudist Wenningstedt-Braderup beach is wide and spacious, and as part of Germany’s FKK, or Free Body Culture, movement, extremely tolerant of one’s right to bare all. Set in the North Sea, the island’s temperatures are certainly cooler than other hot spots on this list, but the laidback attitude and glorious open spaces make it a must-see
