There was also, of course, an official socialist institution with a long, uninspiring name.
Even German Chancellor Angela Merkel was said to have practiced nudism during her youth in the GDR -- although it's not been confirmed whether recently unearthed photos purporting to show her swimming and walking naked with friends are the real deal.
It was secretly considered a form of escape from the uniforms, marches and conformity of the communist state.
East Germans were free to practice nudism and did so wherever possible: at lakes, sea beaches and large FKK camping grounds.
As these are mostly located in areas with a mixed dressed/undressed crowd, there's no problem with partially disrobing until you feel comfortable.
There are no changing rooms, so undressing takes place in public -- but again, not one German is going to be offended by this.
Back home, there are many nudist camping areas to be found along Germany's coast and along the lake shores of the former GDR. Walking around naked in public areas where most other people are dressed counts as a minor breach of the law.
The heartland of public nakedness also still has a plethora of designated FKK beaches and nudist zones in public parks and on beaches.
Berlin public parks have FKK areas: the famous Mauerpark in Prenzlauer Berg, the Volkspark Friedrichshain and the Tiergarten, and it's permitted to get naked on all Berlin's public bathing beaches, such as at Wannsee or the Mueggelsee.
For those who like to put some distance between themselves and the next naked bather, Germany's largest Baltic island, Ruegen, has no fewer than five FKK beaches.
