A naked American tourist raised eyebrows when he went for a walk through a German city and told police he thought this was acceptable behaviour in Germany.

“We have been having unusually hot weather here lately but, all the same, we can’t have this,” a spokesman for police in the southern city of Nuremberg said on Tuesday. “The man said he thought walking around naked was tolerated in Germany.”

Many Germans enjoy nude sunbathing which is allowed in public parks. The 41-year-old was carrying his clothes in a bag when police stopped him on Monday evening after complaints from pedestrians.

The tourist was not under the influence of drugs, said police. They made him get dressed and pay a 200 euro (136 pound) deposit pending his investigation for indecent behaviour.

What gave him the impression that Germans waltzed around in the buff?

Naked people lying down sunbathing in a park is one thing, but didn’t he notice none of them walking around the town doing the shopping?

It might come from all those websites showing naked girls walking around German towns.  Not that I would know anything about those sites, I just saw something about it on Wikipedia or something.

I know it is difficult for you guys across the Atlantic. However most of those pictures are made in other funny speaking countries. Like EASTERN Europe. And I don

Well, unless Dusseldorf if a popular city name outside of Germany, I think I’ll just have to ignore your comments.  raspberry

And yes, most of them seem Dutch or ‘miscellaneous’, but there are definitely many from Germany.  Not that it’s legal, but then it isn’t here either and there are still plenty of sites for it.  Or so my research indicates.

When in Europe use your common sense. If you see topless ladies but no bottomless people, you know you can go topless, if everybody is in the buff so you can go naked. Sometimes it

I spent 4 years in Germany near Karlsruhe and not once did I see a naked person outside of the nude beaches that seem to occupy a corner of every abandoned quarry in the area.  I can’t imagine where this guy would have gotten the idea that people walk around naked on a regular basis.  However having said that there were quite a few girls that lived near me that would certainly have had my full attention if they had walked around naked.

Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you’re a mile away and you have their shoes.

The world would probably be a happier place if we all walked around naked.


Except in Norway. Nobody would have any extremities.

Whaddya mean by that? We have looong hot summers up here. Last year we had full summer & 26C (79F) as early as April 26. It lasted til mid september if my memory is correct.
And while we don’t go to the mall nekkid, lotsa people use those hot summers to get a nice tan all over LOL

And agreed; I think the world would be a better place, too!
