On our last full day in Munich, Agent M and I went to the Englischer Garten (English Garden) to take in some nature and drink some beer. I’d been told that there were a few areas in the park that were designated as Freikoerperkultur (FKK) areas, where full nudity is allowed and encouraged. So, I figured, while in Munich, do as the Müncheners do!
As an aside, topless sunbathing is not really considered nudity in Germany, which is why I was a bit disappointed not to see scores of topless women all over the park….
We also checked out the surfing area on the man-made Eisbach, where the water enters the park on the southern end. Pretty impressive! Technically surfing is legal, although swimming in the water is not, which is strange. But apparently a few people have drowned in the heavy current, and there were also reports of glass and other dangerous stuff on the bottom of the stream. So, since I still had four weeks left in my trip, I held off on the illegal and potentially dangerous swimming. Definitely going to do it next time, though.
