It will be the most German of combinations: nudity and beach towels. After decades of sunbathing and camping in the buff, the legions of Teutonic naturists are about to get their very own holiday heaven — a completely clothing-free hotel. A handful of German hotels have accommodated naturists up to now, but the management at Rosengarten plan to take a hardline anti-apparel stance. That is where the beach towels come in.

But in Germany's Harz Mountains the concept is about to get a novel new definition, with a trail geared for nudist walkers to open in May. The path will stretch 18 kilometres between the towns of Dankerode and Wippertalsperre. The idea follows a recent ban on naked hiking in the Swiss canton of Appenzell Innerrhoden, imposed largely in response to the number of German visitors stripping off on the region's trails to experience nature in the full state of nature.
