Berlin to allow go topless at public swimming pools

The Berlin state government announced on Thursday that women will soon be able to swim topless at the city’s public swimming pools, just like men. 

The decision to introduce new bathing rules allowing individuals to swim without covering their torsos comes after a woman lodged a discrimination complaint for being denied the right to go topless at a swimming pool in the capital.

The woman approached the senate’s ombudsperson’s office for equal treatment, demanding that women be allowed to swim topless like men. 

The Berlin senate for justice, diversity, and anti-discrimination confirmed that the woman’s identity was not disclosed.

 Following the complaint and the involvement of the ombudsman, the Berliner Baederbetriebe, the organization responsible for managing the city’s public pools, decided to amend its clothing policies, according to the statement.

“The ombudsperson’s office very much welcomes the decision of the Baederbetriebe, because it establishes equal rights for all Berliners, whether male, female or non-binary, and because it also creates legal certainty for the staff at the Baederbetriebe,” said Doris Liebscher, the head of the ombudsperson’s office.

In the past, women who bared their breasts at Berlin pools were asked to cover themselves or to leave the pool, and were sometimes banned from returning.

“Now it is important that the regulation is applied consistently and that no more expulsions or house bans are issued,” Liebscher said.

It was not immediately clear when exactly the new bathing rules would be applied.
