Berlin Offers Toilet Tours

A Berlin tour guide is now offering a tour of Berlin's public conveniences. Tour guide Anna Haase wanted to take visitors in Berlin off the beaten track and came up with the novel idea of showing them some of the German capital's most famous toilets.

She takes groups around the city's lavatories, telling them about the history of the toilet's development from biblical times to the present day and showing them toilets ranging from the oldest and most primitive to the newest and most technical. Highlights of the tour include a visit to a toilet block dating from the late 19th century, and also a trip to the Kaiser's fully restored bathroom at the Potsdamer Platz square.

Haase says that the toilet tours are in demand, especially from clubs and societies, as well as from people with a specialist or professional interest in the topic. The meeting point for the tour is at the 19th century toilet block at the Gendarmenmarkt Square and ends at a restaurant called "The Loo," where tourists are shown a Japanese automatic toilet which costs as much as a small car.
