A man urinated in the Baltic Sea and was "caught" by police officers. He was ordered to pay a fine of 60 euros and complained to the competent court. The court lifted the fine and found a nice social setting for the urination:
"A certain custom and toleration can be named for this, for example, during hikes, when working in fields and meadows, with hunters and mushroom pickers, cyclists and bike tourers, bathers at lakes and rivers and during other nature-related activities. The fact that, unlike in the mountains and on the edges of forests, there are no other opportunities to retreat to the countryside along the Baltic Sea's coastline apart from turning away cannot be to the detriment of those affected. That's just the way it is on the coast." (Lübeck District Court of 29.06.2023, 83a OWi 739).
