The German sauna culture – nudity Top 10 Difficult Languages to Learn 2 months ago   02:53

DW English
The Germans might not have invented the sauna tradition, but they have very much embraced it. On this week's Meet the Germans, Rachel Stewart finds out why the Germans just love to get naked for a communal sweat session.
Rachel is on a mission to investigate the quirks and idiosyncrasies of daily life in Germany. Every two weeks she explores a new topic - from beer to sauna etiquette to complicated grammar - and heads out to get some tips from the Germans themselves.

Rachel moved from the UK to Germany in 2016. As a relative newcomer she casts a fresh eye over German clichés and shares her experiences of settling into German life. You'll find more from Meet the Germans on YouTube or at

Try a public bath in Japan.
The video was censored by the host, an attractive woman who kept her towel on.
Paul Grimm
Couldn’t do that to the public with my body!

Not made clear that the Sauna is not Men's Sauna and Women's Sauna -
Solemn Solace
Naked women flattering themselves with honey. I'm in.
American society would never be ok with something like this , if a man mistakenly glances at a women in one of those saunas in America he'll be arrested for sexual harassment and embarrassed nationally and posted on @MeToo websites for all to see .
I mean the "no talking" thing totally depends on when, where and with whom you're in the sauna. During an Aufguss for example, it's quite common there's a lot of talking and banter with the aufgussmeister, except from silent aufgüsse...
again...there is no such thing as "the germans"'s far too simplistic and blanketing...diversity/differences exist...

Nudity?! What nudity?! I'm a nudist and I know what nudity is and I didn't see any. At the sauna at out nudist park we don't wear anything, we go completely NUDE, actually we don't wear anything at our nudist park anyway. By the way, youtube does allow full nudity. And how ridiculous is it to be talking about being NUDE in a SAUNA in GERMANY, while being IN the sauna with a big thick towel on?! No wonder she's hot... she's wearing a big thick towel. She might as well be wearing a parka.

Could you have Rachel, you wouldnt need any kind of sauna. She is HOT, that hotness would be enough.

I've never understood people feeling awkward being naked in front of other people. It doesn't bother me at all. We all have the same parts.
Simon Kraemer
For me, it seems to be totally weird not to be naked in a sauna. I mean: it's a sauna!
Steve Fuchs
Do not speak is wrong, in German saunas is more talked than at Oprah.
MSP Spotter
what spa was this at?

Public bathing was common in the Roman Empire ; man is no different today then man was then and man will self-destruct today just like he did yesterday, if he doesn't turn away from the mistakes he made yesterday.
