I am traveling to the Netherlands. The hotel (I've been there before) has no curtains or blinds in the rooms - very typical for the country. In front of the window runs a street, not particularly wide, then comes a residential building (the apartments don't all have curtains either, if I remember correctly). In short, the inhabitants can see inside well. During my last trip I had already wondered, am I allowed to change clothes in the hotel room? I always changed in the secluded bathroom then, so as not to do anything wrong. I'm not a beauty, but I wouldn't care if anybody sees me, but I don't want to misbehave.
How should I behave, what is expected of me or what is even the law?
- Only change in the secluded bathroom?
- May I change, but it would be obscene if I had the light on in the room?
- Or doesn’t it matter?
I seem to remember that the Dutch are rather easygoing on this topic, but I'd like to ask this question anyway.
Additionally, out of mere interest: What are the expectations when you are traveling as a couple and want to practice intercourse, and others can look right on the bed from the outside?
