Nudists in Germany have voiced concerns over proposals to construct a refugee shelter beside their beloved colony.
The 400 members of the Familiensport-und FKK-Bund Waldteichfreunde Moritzburg nudist group fear their lifestyle will come under threat when the migrant home opens.
They have cited the recent history of sexual assaults by refugees in Germany as an issue that makes them deeply uneasy about the proposal to construct the £1million building overlooking their getaway.
All the naturists choose to spend their time together in the nude.
Treasurer Petra Hoffman said: ‘Since 1905, our more-than-400 members maintain a traditional way of life, the culture of nudity.
‘I do not know if it wise to set up the asylum home here.’
Others said the introduction of the shelter would result in them moving away from the colony.
The regional government has confirmed that it is looking into the concerns of the nudists.
However, they insist the accommodation, in Mortizburg in the east of the country, will not be used in the summer months, when most nudists attend the retreat.
Kerstin Thoens, a spokeswoman for the district office of Meissen regional council, also said a large privacy screen would be erected to help further put the nudists at ease.
