Could nudism be a fashion someday

Nudism in Berlin - from sport to the beach, finally down with your clothes

When it is called, clothes can be stressful quickly. So: let's get rid of it! Just make sure that it is allowed - because some people may be a bit prudish. In the GDR, naked was practically the bathing standard, elsewhere people were buttoned up (attention, puns). In the meantime, nudism is possible in several places in Berlin. There are not only selected corners in some city parks and at bathing lakes, but also clubs and special opening of city pools.

We have picked out 16 naked addresses where you can do nudism in Berlin.

Predominantly older bathing fans use the nudist area of ​​the lido, which is separated from the rest of the beach by a partition, in summer.

Attention: The Wannsee lido has been open since May 25th, but the nudist area is closed because, according to the Berlin bathing companies, the distance rules cannot be observed there. Here we explain the restrictions with which the Berlin outdoor pool season starts this year.

The zoo sunbathing area

Naked sunbathing is not officially permitted in the zoo. Nevertheless, it has been practiced mainly by men for decades. Since then, the zoo has been one of the classics for nudists in Berlin. And is one of the few of the many beautiful parks in Berlin, in which nudity is at least tolerated in places. Rumor has it that men meet here who don't just want to sunbathe naked ...


Hasenheide sunbathing area

Like the lawn in the zoo, the meadow in the Hasenheide is not an official nudist area. But for years, naked people have been soaking up the sun here. And here too there is rumor that it sometimes works in the inconspicuous bushes ... well. Recently the situation in the Hasenheide escalated a little, because more and more (not allowed) raves came by. In fact, you can still bang yourself in the sun unclothed.


Stadtbad Neukölln

On Sunday evenings (men and women) and Monday evenings (women), the relatively small pool here is reserved for naked swimmers. There is also a beautiful historic sauna.
