BERLIN – A brothel in Berlin has found new way to fight against the climate change and recession by offering discounts to clients who arrive by bicycle or public transport.
The Maison d’Envie said on its website the unique “environmental discount” comes in a bid to reward visitors’ “green commitment” amid the difficult financial situation.
The discount is 5 euros (around $7) off for a 45-minute visit, which normally costs 70 euros or around $100.
The brothel’s owner said the offer had attracted up to five new customers daily and eased parking congestion in the neighbourhood.
Prostitution was legalised in Germany in 2002 and there are around 400,000 registered sex workers in the country.
