Want to know which FKK clubs in Austria are the best?
FKK sauna clubs are an alternative way to hire the services of a prostitute in Austria and differ to the experience of a brothel or an escort. Similar to a swinger’s club, you can expect to see a lot of nudity and sexual activities as well as enjoy some wellness treatments on the side. They are more like a sex club than your average spa and have a selection of freelance hookers who roam the venue, available for personal services. The idea was started in Germany in the 1980s and has become very popular in Austria.
In this guide, we take a look at the sauna clubs of Austria and how they compare to the FKK scene in Germany. We also give you our choice of the best FKK clubs in Austria plus a full list of the main sauna clubs in the rest of the country.
What is an FKK Club?
FKK stands for the German word freikörperkultur which translates to Free Body Culture. Ostensibly, a lifestyle movement that champions naturism, the FKK movement is different to the term FKK clubs.
FKK clubs are not just places where nudists can spend time together but have come to be synonymous with a sex club. They are set up like a sauna club where guests can enjoy all of the facilities, but also have pay for sex on site with a prostitute.
They are normally staffed with an array of women who are naked or topless whilst guests can remain robed or in towels if they wish (though FKK purists believe this is against the naturist concept). Some clubs allow couples as well as single women but some are gentlemen only.
The pricing structure varies by club with some charging a fixed fee which includes sex but most have an admission charge and sex is then paid for on a ‘pay-as-you-go’ basis; similar to running up a tab which you settle on leaving.
FKK Clubs: Austria vs Germany
The original FKK clubs were set up in Germany in the 1980s by a man called Bernd. Since then more than 500 such clubs have been opened in Germany.
The concept is a popular one in surrounding countries and you can find FKK clubs in Czech Republic and Switzerland as well as in Austria.
By contrast, Austria has far fewer FKK clubs than Germany but they are similar in design and format. Certainly Germany has the edge of sheer number of FKK clubs but also in terms of size with most of the Austrian venues being markedly smaller than their German counterparts.
As in Germany, prostitution is legalised and fully regulated which means that the ladies must have compulsory medical checks and carry an up to date health pass.
Best FKK Clubs in Austria
There are only a dozen or so FKK clubs in Austria and you can find a full list below of all the main venues; however, our choice of the best that the country has to offer are:
