• Vienna, Austria Summer 2017

     Even if you are not there in mid-summer, - if it's warm (spring/early fall), a few hours or half-day at Donau Island (Donauinsel) can be a great relaxing treat. It's where the 'frei' Viennese go to let it all hang out - there are nude sunbathing areas on the kilometres of recreation land in the thin strip of land that runs down the middle and along the banks of the Danube River. When in Vienna - do as they do -  make like a Wiener (No offense intended).

    Here I was on Donau Insel a couple of years ago.

    4. Baden Lobau FKK , Lobau Baths (clothing optional) Lobau Vienna, 9 1220 Austria Naturistenpark Lobau (also known as Naturist Park Lobau)
    I have not visited Lobau myself, but it might be worth a trip if you enjoy nudity outdoors and especially in the healing baths. I found this information about Lobau.

    The visitors to the Lobau, which is situated in the south-eastern part of Vienna, are in complete contrast to the visitors to the Copa Cagrana. For 100 years people are coming here because of the freedom to go bathing completely naked. Obviously they have been so liberal on occasions that they have got themselves into trouble, but this is a thing of the past. Today you have to walk or to take the bike to come here, because this natural region may not be accessed by cars. By public transport, you take the bus #91A to Ölhafen Neue Donau. (Property Information by Wcities from Yahoo Travel)
