Not enough female public toilets in ZH

I think Zurich is the worst place I've been for public toilets, and why on earth do they have pissior or whatever they are called ( those places where it's just a wall for males to pee up ) the other day I was going to my hairdresser on the langstrasse and really needed to pee, absolutely relieved to see a WC only to find it was a pissior ( yet again ) do they think it's just men that pee around here what on earth is it

Re: Not enough female public toilets in ZH

Just do what all the other women do, and go into restaurants, bars, fast food joints and department stores.


...... and men obvioisly need to piss more as they drink beer in big glasses, whilst women drink girlie drinks in small measures.

Re: Not enough female public toilets in ZH

Tried that last week in wintherthur I put 1chf in the toilet only to find it was blocked with coins nearly wet myself, I went to complain in the sbb but there was a huge que so couldn't wait, eventually went to Burger King to find there's a bloody code on the door I asked the lady at the till if I could just use the toilet and explained I'd paid to go to the public one and the coin machine that you use to enter was blocked and she said you can't go unless you buy something then the code is on the receipt

Re: Not enough female public toilets in ZH

You were unlucky, then.
The BK in Bern just give out the code willy-nilly to anyone that asks.

Did your mum never tell you to go before you go out, and never leave it to the last minute?

Public peeing needs planning.

Re: Not enough female public toilets in ZH

Does your hairdresser not have a toilet you can use ?

Perhaps you need to think about your bladder control...

I suspect the lack of public toilets around the Langstrasse has something to do with the demographic of that area...there are a lot of public toilets throughout Zurich...

The key options around that area would be the community centre at the Bäckeranlage. The restaurant in the Migros Klubschule Wengihof. There are some on the tram stop at Limmatplatz, or at the big Migros shopping centre next to Limmatplatz. The tram stop at Stauffacher. Or the Riffraff movie theatre, or the International Beer Bar...

I think the Burger King person was just following standard protocol. What's to stop you grabbing a reciept from the tray of another customer... I am sure the code is the same for everyone!

Re: Not enough female public toilets in ZH

I'm in Wetzikon it's not too bad there for toilets in fact somebody kindly put up a heater in the toilets at the bahnoff although this could cause hoarding problems with the cold weather, the city though here is pretty bad for toilets and to block up a machine and not have an out of order notice is disgusting, I was stuck for 45 minutes trying to find a toilet my fiancé was looking for me confused as to where I'd gone I ended up complaining to the bahnoff polizie about the machine being blocked and eventually they opened up the disabled toilet for the que that had formed from the blocked machine

There's not enough toilets though I think it should be addressed, look how many WC there is in the main station, not enough by anyone's standard surely, me and my partner once saw a poor lady pee herself I think maybe a complaint to the sbb and I never got my 1frabc back from the machine and the polizie reluctantly opened the disabled toilet by that point there was 8 desperate people sorry but not on

Almost every carriage of every IR train have 2 WCs. Just make sure you have enough time before the train leaves and dispose of any paper in the bin in the old-syle trains.

Re: Not enough female public toilets in ZH

Actually that is a very good idea and I've done that before just have to make sure the train doesn't leave before you get out the loo, yes very good idea just look at the departure time before you go inside

Re: Not enough female public toilets in ZH

if you have this issue regularly, you should really plan your toilet stops better. even with my 6 year old, we don't have this issue in the city.

Maybe the only way to address this is with a 'sit-down' public protest (but don't forget to have enough tissues with you).
