Detlef Meine, chief official of Muellrose town near the Polish border, said Friday the law, complete with a 35-euro (47-dollar) fine, was not an April Fool's Day joke.

Muellrose, Germany (dpa) - A German town which welcomes vacationers to swim in its pretty lakes and hike in its woods has passed a by-law banning open-air sex, taking effect from April 1.

Detlef Meine, chief official of Muellrose town near the Polish border, said Friday the law, complete with a 35-euro (47-dollar) fine, was not an April Fool's Day joke. Residents had complained there was too much hanky-panky at the town's annual summer festival.

The town is the gateway to the Schlaubetal Nature Reserve near Frankfurt-an-der-Oder. Meine said federal law was too lax, because it only made sex in the open an offence if it was intended to be seen.
