Sport und Naturfreunde Witten is based at the edge of the Ardey Mountains, on the outskirts of Witten. The club was founded in around 1931 and evolved from a local private, historically unorganised “free-body culture”.
Nudist-oriented terrain life was at the time in the closer environment only in Selbeck (near Mülheim). To use the site, the “League for Free Living” from Eggestorf in the Lüneburger Heide presented nudism passes.
The grounds are now more than 80,000m2, with a guest meadow for camping and have continually expanded over the years. For people with less understanding of FKK and the history of clubs in Germany the club history page is very interesting.
Witten regularly host weekly swimming, sauna, tennis, table tennis, badminton, petanque, running, cycling and hiking activities. The club has in house tournaments and events for members and is also part of the regional Familien-Sport-Gemeinschaft NW e.V. which has 28 other clubs in the area part of a network of 300+

“In our summer holidays, my husband and I have always been looking for opportunities, even times naked swimming or sun bathing. In the winter we went regularly in sauna and similar leisure baths. With nudity, we never had a problem”
“In the summer of 2013, we considered whether there could be simpler, closer and cheaper ways to enjoy the sun. From his youth, my husband could remember that there would have to be a nudist area in the border area of Witten / Dortmund. My internet searches were sobering. To the keyword “nude” I was led to dozens of naturist clubs, saunaclubs and other red light offers. Here the roof federation (DFK) must have slept well. One could certainly have protected the term “nude” and would not be scorned in this form of disapproval – no matter ..”
