Setting an example

The "NiceToilet"

Public toilets seem to be a problem all over the world – unclean, unhygienic and unpopular. Now, the “Nice Toilet" initiative is tackling this issue.

This nationwide register shows you all of the shops and restaurants in the city that allow the general public to use their toilets free of charge. Additionally, the yellow and red stickers displayed at the participating restaurants also show whether the establishment has baby changing facilities or accessible toilets. In Germany, the initiative already has around 2,500 members, and that number is growing. We are delighted that many of the businesses in Karlsruhe city centre are also participating in the “Nette Toilette” initiative.

Would you like to offer a “Nette Toilette”, but haven’t done so yet? Then find more information here and get involved! Shops and restaurants with a “Nette Toilette”
