Since May, everyone in the university town in Lower Saxony has been allowed to go topless swimming on Saturdays and Sundays. That should change now.

Göttingen – In future, all visitors will be able to go bare-chested in swimming pools in Göttingen every day. Since May, this has only been possible on weekends in the four municipal swimming pools. The city’s sports committee had now voted in favor of the regulation. “The vast majority of bathers found the option good,” said a city spokesman on Friday.

The trigger for the decision was a person who sees himself neither as a woman nor as a man. In August 2021 she therefore went swimming topless. The swimming pool saw her as a woman and therefore spoke of a violation of the bathing regulations. Afterwards there were many debates in the city. According to the city, there have been no significant incidents in the affected pools since the “topless rule”. An estimated four to five people would have used the regulations per bathing day. dpa
