I guess I like having a lot to take in when I’m on the loo. At Rhiz, I had troubles even finding the loo behind all the posters the first time.
The inside is totally plastered from floor to ceiling.
It’s very informative.
But mostly just entertaining. 🙂
This time at Fluc, where they decided that they’d leave it up to the clientele to decorate the walls.
Today I’ve hit an all-time low I think. This DOES amuse me though! Seen at Bipa.
It may be a tiny sign, but it made an impression
I snapped this picture about three years ago, but I still crack up thinking about it every now and then when I see dogshit (which is, let’s face it, far too often). It says Vienna = Dog toilet. I’ve seen all the signs up that you can get fined for not cleaning up your dog’s mess, but I’ve always wondered WHO(???!?!?) enforces this? It would give me so much satisfaction to see someone get fined for not picking up their dog’s crap.
It’s your dog, dude! It’s also your crap!! Get your shit together!
At the Schwarze Rabe in the 17th District, not far away from the Ottakring station, they have really awesome toilet boards where you can write what you have to say on a piece of paper and put it up on the board. I think this prevents people from writing what they have to say everywhere else all over the loo. Nice design! 😀
My new instalment that will pop up here every now and then: toilet doors and interior at cool bars. Scribbles and decorations of these intimate rooms fascinates me, and so I thought I’d share this little secret world with you. 🙂
This is the loo at die dondrine on Kirchengasse.
I was thinking that I need to make up for yesterday’s hasty picture, but I suppose this really won’t cut it… but anyway! The toilets here in Austria are well worthy of a post. On Wikipedia, I found the following description:
A washout toilet, informally called a German toilet, is a kind of flush toilet predominantly used in Germany and Austria. The German terms for this type of toilet are Flachspüler or Hochspüler. The German toilet has a shelf in the toilet bowl above the water surface to hold the faeces before flushing, where they may be inspected for “health reasons.”
Indeed. I think most foreigners are quite conflicted about being confronted with their own faeces upon their first visits to the loo, but you do tend to get used to it. I have a ‘normal’ toilet at home, which is a bit more comfortable to me… because you really get the ‘full experience’ of your doodoo when you’re on one of these. Smell, sounds, colours… all of it!
Ok, not sure how interesting, but it caught my eye. Coming from a ‘small town’ one is not used to seeing signs that tell you ‘no syringes’ and ‘no kicking’ just to go to the loo.
Allright, I’ll admit that I’m the perfect customer for this kind of thing. Although it’s totally a scam, and the paper has no more value than if it’s plain white, I just have to have funky toilet paper and kitchen rolls. I saw this at Spar just before I left, and a parcel is now waiting for me to come home and do my business… haha 😀
When the need arises, it is good to know that there is one place in Vienna that really can accommodate sophisticated bottoms. The Opera Toilet, which is at the subways station just by the Opera House plays Wienerwaltz music non stop. Really, non-stop… when you walk past even really late at night after a night out, it’s still going strong.. this still cracks me up. I think it’s only the tourists that go there, unless you’re really desperate… and have to. It’ll cost you 70 Eurocents. But hey.. the music is pretty ok! 😀 I found this youtube video which gives you a brief listen to the music. magical!
