Shopping in the nude at the baker’s …

… most of us do not regard being in the buff when you buy your buns as obvious, especially if all other customers still wear winter coats. But this young man in France implements this practice – since the baker’s slogan for his products is »Toutes les Richesses de la nature« (All the treasures of nature). A motto we naturists follow!

 

Natury goes international and polyglot … [19 February 2017]

… first in Dutch: www.natury.nl.

The most important parts of www.natury.de are now made easier to understand for those who prefer to read in Dutch language. We hope that this will encourage our friends outside Germany to participate to our nudevents. And on the other hand everyone who has something to report that might be interesting for the other readers (a nudist walk, nude bathing or anything else important from the naturist world) can inform us by sending his comment to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. (Dutch) or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. (German, English, or French). Of course we also call up our German readers to send in their reports.

It is, of course, not our intention to translate all articles, since some of them might not be relevant for all countries and will therefore not be translated into the languages of other countries. Yet there is enough input to be translated, so it will take some time to have everything important available in the relevant languages, since all those who participate their contribution to this site do this as volunteers besides their professional jobs.

Would you like to contribute to our comprehensive translation work from German into Dutch? Then please write an e-mail to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Suggestion for the current weather situation: Nude hiking in the snow [30 November 2017]

INAJohn, representative der INA (Irish Naturist Association), INA Video Linkslately allowed us to use the INA logo on natury.de, and took the opportunity to point out the approximately 60 short videos that INA posted on YouTube. Especially recommended in view of the current weather conditions with the first snow to the lowlands is the report on a one-hour nude walk in January 2016 at 0 °C – but with no wind and a bit of sunshine. Waiting for sunshine will be worthwhile, as the heat of the sun is coming not only from above but also from below by reflection of the snow! You are welcome to send documentation of current activities to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. – we gladly report!

Golden October for the photo hike in the Venne Moor [19 October 2017]

Nude photo walk in the Venne Moor Nude hiking for the practice of photographic art was once again a motive for a 12 km long hike in and on the Venne Moor. The autumn-colored foliage shone intensely in the warm-coloured rays of the sun, and the summery residual tan on the bodies of the hikers mirrored a similar hue. There were few trees in bog and, therefore, little shelter from the elements, especially the sun which was able to contribute powerful heat radiation. We started at noon when the air temperatures were still slightly below 20 °C. In these conditions we easily captured the photos we wanted and, as a small reward, had coffee and cake in the late afternoon at the end of the hike. The following day had rain and cool temperatures – so we had probably used the last day of the year with summer temperatures.

Golden October Sunday with panoramic views of the city of Hagen [15 October 2017]

B. and Th. had invited us to the bare autumn hike to at Hagen where four men and a woman went on a 12 km long circular walk through the wooded mountain country. No small clouds obscured the clear blue sky and, so, the sun shone freely for 10 h 45 min and heated the air to 23 °C. From time to time we could see the city panorama through the trees. At the end of our hike we enjoyed coffee and cake on their terrace. Thank you very much, B. and Th., for such a wonderful day!

Tue 3 October: Hike through the Forest of Fairy Tales in the Burgwald, Germany [7 October 2017]

On October 3 at the initiative of Horst K. one woman and six men met for a fairy tale hike on the Panorama Trail in the Burgwald around Rauschenberg near Marburg. All enjoyed the day, and the weather appeared much better than at home.

On the way to the castle ruin, we passed through the Fairy Tale Forest, which had been planted some 20 years earlier. At the ruin, we met a few guys who had bounced up the mountain on bicycles. They had chosen this terrain as their adventure playground for the day.

In the fairy tale forest Holy Oak Meal

Several hikers on the way were all wrapped in thick clothes. They often asked us, in amazement, if it was not too cold for us. We explained that this was not the case for us. When human skin acting as a temperature sensor receives uniform information the body adapts, within reasonable limits, to the ambient temperature without freezing. And when the body is provided with contradictory information – warm under clothing and cool on unclothed skin – then body temperature regulation does not work so well.

After 16 km we followed the example of peacefully grazing sheep and ended our day at a restaurant in Rauschenberg.

Andy Golub presents a new website with a lot of videos on bodypainting [5 October 2017]

Andy Golub, linked since long time in our list of links as to art, has moved his presentation on bodypainting art to the new URL humanconnectionarts.org, on which a lot of videos on bodypainting invite to browse through and watch – it's recomendable to invoke the full screen mode. Aside from New York City, further cities in the USA, and – in Europe – Amsterdam, where the Bodypainting Day takes place since years, further cities all over the world, like i.e. Berlin, have joined in for the colourful presentation of natural joie de vivre. On the spot, a Berlin-based manufacturer of theater make-up has used this oppurtunity to promote this as a sponsor, another manufacturer from New York has then joined in, too. In Germany in 2017, further bodypainting events to join in took place: Bodypainting in Clausthal-Zellerfeld, Harz mountains und a BodyArt Performance in the harbour of Münster (Westf.)

Our project 'Multilingualism' proudly presents brochure, postcards etc. in English [1 October 2017]

The translation to English has made an amazing progress. Kudos to Bernard from England and John from Ireland for their deliberately offered translation work.

As a proof, the printable brochure, postcards etc. are from know available in English, containing URLs refering to already translated parts of the natury site.

Our naked performance on the footbridge on Saturday night in pictures [29 August 2017]

Photo story

Eleven nudes enter the bridge and move slowly to the center.

Eleven nudes enter the bridge and move slowly to the center.

WORTH_LIVING. The motto of the city of Münster.

The middle of the bridge is reached. They all turn clockwise and show the letters "LEBENSWERT." [en: "WORTH_LIVING."] – The motto of the city of Münster.

Naturism is just NATURLAL.

After about half a minute, all naturists turn around and show the lettering "NATÜRLICH." [en: "NATURAL."] And the logo of the City of Münster. Naturism is just natural. We have to calm down the security guys, who are in red t-shirts: "We're doing an art project here!"

Position change.

Position change. In order to be able to read our inscriptions from the other side of the harbour, we have to change the order of the naturists. The security guys take care, that we do everything right.

For the people on the waterside side with the many restaurants.

Now we are the other way round, and the people on the waterside side with the many restaurants can finally read: "LEBENSWERT." [en: "WORTH_LIVING."], while from the other side now, ".HCILRÜTAN" can be seen from left to right, i.e. correct from right to left.

The other side of the coin: Naturism is

Once again, we turned around to show people in the restaurants: Naturism is "NATÜRLICH." [en: "NATURAL."] The photographer on the other side now sees ".TREWSNEBEL" from left to right, correct again from right to left.

Message understood. We go back to the waterside. There is applause. Thank you!

In all 4 positions, we have stayed for about half a minute. Now our message has been understood, and we are going back to the waterside. There is applause. Thank you!

On the waterside, there is one of us with a young family answering their questions as to the performance, which just have happened. The three children at the age of 4, 6 and 8 years did like it, and their parents as well.

Münster is WORTH_LIVING, they all here know it, so they live here, NATURALLY!

Catch-up days from 24 to 27 August of the Westphalian Naturists' Days [27 August 2017]

Those nudevents in the Münsterland region in Germany in June / July, which had to be abandoned or cancelled are now put onto the agenda again at end of August expecting more stable weather conditions.

27 Aug

Sun 27 Aug: Naked hike near Merfeld [27 August 2017]

Sunday was the last day of the catch-up days, offering as good conditions for nudevents, as the days before. 16 naked hikers, aged between 30 and 80 years, covered a distance of about 15 km in the Merfeld area. As part of the track, one had the choice to wade a brook, while others continued on dry paths. Those, who waded, realized, that there are also ascents in the Münsterland: the brook has three (artificial) waterfalls with a drop height of about 30 cm each on a distance of 1 km.

Along the alley towards the enclosure of the Dülmen Pony

Also as part of the hike, a side trip to the Dülmen Pony and finally a refreshment in the restaurant Waldfrieden took place. This year's series of naturists' weeks drew to a close.
