But, as the saying kind of goes, you never forget your first time confronted by public nudity. Later, after speaking with friends and acquiring a fairly questionable Google search history, I found out that stumbling across an au naturel enclave in a city park or beach is practically a rite of passage in Berlin.
And unlike, say, taking off your top at a beach in Spain, FKK encompasses a broader German movement with a distinct spirit, where stripping down to your essence in the natural world has historically been an act of both resistance and relief. According to Hanno Hochmuth, a historian at the Leibniz Centre for Contemporary History Potsdamthis reform movement took particular hold in larger cities, including Berlin, despite its romanticising of country living.
InAlfred Koch founded the Berlin School of Nudism to encourage mixed-gender nudist exercise, continuing the belief that outdoor nudity promoted harmony with nature and wellness benefits. Hochmuth, who visited nude beaches with his parents as growing up in East Berlin agrees.
Since East Germany merged with the larger West in and restrictions lifted in the former communist state, FKK culture has declined.
Inthe German Association for Free Body Culture counted only 30,plus registered members — many of whom were in their 50s and 60s. It even manages to make the occasional viral headline, such as when a naked man in an FKK-deated area at a Berlin lake this summer was forced to give chase to a wild boar that had run off with a bag containing his laptop.
The listings site Nacktbaden. Or, if you want to be a bit more formal about it, the sporting club FSV Adolf Koch offers nude yoga, volleyball, badminton and table tennis in Berlin.
In many ways, the FKK legacy gives travellers an insight into values that still unite many East Germans. For Sternkopf, seeing nude bodies in a non-sexualised way also helps people learn to see others beyond their outer appearances. By baring it all, it makes it easier to see not just a body, but the individual. Why Germans love getting naked in public.
