The founding fathers of the naturist movement already hiked in the buff at the beginning of the 20th century. Thus, Richard Ungewitter reports in his book "Nackt" [en: Nude] (1908) about his nude hikes in the Schwarzwald [en: Black Forest].
Today, naturists initiate alone by means of the natury website nude hikes totalling around 1,000 km per year. Anyone interested can register with the initiator by e-mail or – in some cases – by filling in a registration form. Hiking groups have usually between 10 and 30 participants.
Quite simple: Because our children wanted to lick an ice cream.
We were the whole day at the bathing lake, of course at the naturist section. it was really hot in the afternoon, our children came up with the idea: Can we lick an ice cream? The ice cream booth was maybe 500 m away and of course provided the children from the textile beach with the coveted refreshment.
But who can give children a plausible reason: "You must wear clothes to get an ice cream!" What a crap! The whole day we jump around in the nude, and then we have to wear clothes for the walk to the ice cream booth, just because there are also people wearing bathing dresses to buy their ice cream? This is absolutely nonsense!
So we went all four in the buff to the ice cream booth, and lo and behold: We stood in the nude amongst textiles in the queue and got our ice cream, without extra charge! And because it tasted so good, we made a little detour through the fields, along the pastures, where the cows chewed in the sun, back through the little grove to our beach.
The first sort of a little "nude hiking" was done. Because it was so beautiful, we have often repeated it and soon also extended the distance. Some day, we hiked in the nude without a stay at the bathing lake being the starting point. Hiking in the nude through nature is always fun – even more: it is a paradisiacal finding!
