Where are you, young followers of the famous German free body culture, Freikörperkultur (FKK)? Or are you maybe new to it and don’t want to do it alone without friends? Let’s meet more often together in one of numerous locations in and around Berlin that are so good for many naturist activities like swimming, hiking, volleyball, badminton, canuding… Do you have a suggestion? Make a comment here! Let’s just choose a place (for example from our map or this list) and a day with nice weather and have some fun ;) During week-days it is better to go to Tiergarten in the center of the city for relaxed sunbathing (in the center of the city for relaxed sunbathing (in the first half of the day you can also refresh in one of those showers from sprinklers on the lawns throughout the park), tree climbing or even game sports. The lawns of Tiergarten are perfect for frisbee, badminton and its new faster counterpart speedminton. By the way speedminton was invented in Berlin, so playing it in the centre of the city a la FKK looks very authentic ;-)
Krumme Lanke is also easy to reach by public transport (U3 Krumme Lanke, check also on the map) and is excellent for swimming. Even in March!) There is also a tree bent over the water where you can jump into the water from up to 3-4m.
Krumme Lanke and Schlachtensee are said to have the cleanest water in Berlin, but Schlachtensee has no beach, which does not matter at night :)

Although it does not look inviting for a swim but is beautiful in a way.
In winter time there are only two options. One is located rightn in the centre of west Berlin. It is Thermen am Europa Center with different types of saunas including 2 hamams, several pools of different temperatures, and large outdoor terraces with views over some of Berlin’s landmarks like Gedaechtniskirche. The biggest pool, which is partially outdoors, is very warm, however due to its narrow shape in its longest part it is not possible to swim intensively when there are even just few people. But if you go there primarily for relaxation, you definitely will enjoy it! Thermen am Europa Center are open throughout the year, so it can be also a good idea for a chilly summer evening, which is not rare in Berlin either…
Another option is Badeshiff , which from November till the end of March becomes an oasis of warmth with saunas and semi-open-air swimming pool with transparent walls over the Spree River! This not only allows you to enjoy the views up to the tallest city’s landmark – Alex TV-tower - but also to appreciate the warmth of saunas in contrast to the chilly winter weather outside.
