Women in Berlin allowed to go topless in swimming pools

After a discrimination complaint, women in Berlin can swim topless.

After the complainant (whose identity is kept private) turned to the senator’s ombudsperson for equal treatment, she demanded the same rights as her male counterparts in regards to going topless at Berlin‘s public pools.

The Berliner Baederbetriebe (the city’s municipal pool operator) decided to modify its swimming rules in response to the complaints and the involvement of the ombudsperson.

Doris Liebscher was the head of the office of the Ombudsperson and said that they were “very pleased with the decision” by the Baederbetriebe.


She stated that it establishes equal rights and legal certainty for all Berliners, male, female, or non-binary.

In the past, Berlin pool owners would ask women to remove their clothes or leave the pool. This was followed by a ban.

Ms Liebscher said, “Now it’s important that the regulation be applied consistently and that no expulsions or housebans are issued.”

Unconfirmed is the date at which the change will take effect.
