D · Sächsische Naturisten-Tage (SNT) 2020: Mon 27 Jul: Paddling in the nude on the Elbe River [29 July 2020]

During the SNT 2020, on Mon 27 July, we could enjoy the day riding an inflated boat or a kayak in Saxon Switzerland:

Already in 2018 and 2019, the opportunity to explore the Elbe valley from the water by paddling nude was gladly accepted. This time, 25 naturists were interested and travelled from the hut by public bus to Bad Schandau. 24 of them were distributed to three inflatable boats, one preferred a kayak.

We experienced a hot day with many breaks for swimming and thoroughly nice encounters with numerous groups, families, or couples in boats on the Elbe and many more on the banks and on ships. Shortly before the reaction ferry at Kurort Rathen, the excitement rose, if the ice cream booth with “the best ice cream on the way from here to Italy” (that's their advertising slogan) there at the Elbe cycle path would have opened. We were lucky and could enjoy the cold goodies there again in the nude.

Shortly before Stadt Wehlen, we landed on the right, put on some clothes and bought refreshments at a kiosk. Then, we returned to the boats and undressed again for the last, short stage. After landing on the left side of the Elbe, we returned the boats and sunbathed on the meadow until the train left for Pirna and on to Pirna-Copitz.

We enjoyed the evening after a short walk in the micro-brewery Zum Giesser in Pirna-Copitz. A chartered bus later brought us back to Ottendorf. Thanks for the wonderful day!

D · 2019 Naturist days in Harz Mountains [11 June 2019]

The “Special Meeting” by Petra and Uwe is always fun for approx. 40 naturists in a rented hut. Besides sauna and nude hiking, bodypainting takes place. Our presentation was rewarded with icecream. The long weekend beginning with Corpus Christi {mobile}Wearing colourful art all together in the altogether{/mobile}{!mobile}Wearing colourful art all together in the altogether{/mobile}in 2019 was again an opportunity for naturists to gather for naturist days in the Harz Mountains and to undertake naturist activities together in the Oberharz region.

During these naturist days, 13 of the naturists participated in a bodypainting. After the already traditional presentation of our body-art works between church and town hall in Clausthal, some of us enjoyed {mobile}Art outside – Cooling down inside{/mobile}{!mobile}Art outside – Cooling down inside{/mobile}a delicious ice cream. Other guests and passers-by first showed their surprise at the colourful “dresses”, then greeted back friendly and took an unusual memory home.

After the trip to Clausthal, some of us did a short hike before dinner. We encountered a family with two boys and two girls. They obviously had a lot of fun in view of our picturesque skin art, and when we told them about having ice cream in Clausthal, they had to laugh out loud – their cheerfulness sounded for quite a while.

D · Week of nude hikes in Saxon Switzerland: paddle or hike [7 August 2018]

During the SNT 2018, on Tue 7 August, there was an option to enjoy the day either riding an inflated boat or by hiking through sandstone formations in Saxon Switzerland:

20180807 Boat tour on the river Elbe: Low waterOn Tuesday, we had the choice between 20180807 Lick an icecream in  the town Kurort Rathena hike in the nude or to ride an inflatable boat on the Elbe. 10 naturists rode the boat from Königstein to Pirna. In between, we took a rest near the ferry at the town Kurort Rathen [en: Spa Town Rathen], to refresh ourselves in the nude together with textile-wearing people – mostly families – by licking icecream or drinking cool buttermilk-elderberry beverages.

20180807 Hockstein: Look-out in direction of Hohnstein Castle17 participants opted for a classical 20180807 Nude rest in a beer gardenhike in the nude, which we started at a car park near the Hockstein. Later, we had a impressive look-out to Hohnstein Castle. The following descent led over ladders worked adventurously into narrow stone gaps. Due to the sunshine, the temperature went up to over 30°C, only in the caves and the Gautschhöhle [en: Gautsch Grotto], the air was clearly cooler. In the beer garden at Waltersdorfer Mühle [en: Waltersdorf Mill], we could rest in the buff to enjoy coffee, ice, sausages, and beer. Other dressed guests were very interested in our way of hiking and started detailed conversations. Finally we went up the Polenztal Valley and arrived after a difficult final climb at the Hockstein.
