If you want to spend some time outside the city walls and love hiking, kayaking, and swimming, the Mecklenburg Lake District in the East of Germany might be the right place for you.
Back to Nature - Nude Camping:
Famous for its crystal clear lakes and evergreen forests, the Lake District offers many campgrounds, many of them with nude beaches and nude campsites.
One of the best ones is the secluded nudist campground at Useriner Lake; it is located in the idyllic and quiet Müritz National Park, which is home to more than 800 plants, 260 birds, and 880 butterfly species.
What to Expect at a Nude Campground:
The family-oriented campground lies directly at Useriner Lake, which is well known for its excellent water quality (no motor boats allowed). Besides spots for RVs and tents, it offers a designated area for nudist campers. There, you can swim, sunbathe, and even do sports sans clothing.
This practice of nudism (or naturism) originated in Germany at the end of the 19th century. Its purpose is non-erotic and non-sexual; nudism rather aims to promote a free and healthy lifestyle close to nature and helps to create relaxation and a positive body image.

Not Only For Nudists:
The Useriner Campground is a great starting point for exploring the National Park by boat; many water routes start here and lead you to serene forest lakes and all along the river Havel. You can rent boats and canoes and explore the green heart of Eastern Germany from the water.
