I thought the headline might grab your attention. I hadn't realized that prostitution was legal in Germany. Not that it's changing my travel plans any. I wonder if this will lead to any marriage problems?

As soccer's best players prepare to square off this summer at the World Cup, businesses across Germany are anticipating a huge windfall with the arrival of an estimated 1 million fans from around the world.

The sex industry is no exception.

Just down the street from Berlin's Olympic Stadium, which hosts the final, stands the city's largest brothel, Artemis - established in September with an eye on capitalizing on the influx of World Cup visitors.

The €6.5 million (US$8 million) 4-storey, 40-bedroom bordello is decorated with liberal doses of faux animal prints and velvet on beds, walls and furniture, amid an eclectic mix of Greek and Roman statuary under Moorish arches.
