An American in Nuremburg

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. “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 yesterday 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 ($329) deposit pending his investigation for indecent behaviour.
