Are you allowed to pee in public in CH? I was sat on a bench by the lake pfaffikasee ZH enjoying my salad and the nice view, when some bloke decides to relieve himself up a tree in full view, i suppose if he was desperate, maybe he did not realize there is a public toilet 5 mins walk away, maybe he thought nobody was there
The correct answer is "it depends". Like many other things this is regulated by the respective Kanton, or lacking regulation by the Gemeinde.

Re: Men relieving themselves in public

It's a bit odd that one cannot pee against a tree .. When at many organised events -- for example the Nyon wine festival a couple of weeks ago, the provided toilets were these.. In full view of the whole event



It's a pretty common sight in Geneva actually, public pissing.. I see it often, at least once per week i see somebody piss in full view.. Recently it was a "lady", right in front of the train station, just lifted her skirt and squatted down on the pavement.

Well, that would be the other side of the Röstigraben. I'm thankful to say that we have different cultural norms up here.

It's a 100 CHF fine in Zug, at least.
Did they make you pay it on the spot or did they send you a bill in the post?

I have seen women do the same thing.
My wife does.

There's a reason that women wear dresses.

That bathroom pic
I actually now want a bathroom that looks exactly like the one in your pic. So beautiful. I even want the tree (not to pee on of course).

I know this is highly important info

On the spot. Same as dropping a cigarette butt on the ground or littering.

You don't need an app. Use your nose!

They should install these on every tree. A P tree-no not a T tree.

And as they say in Australia: " a pee in the hand is worth 2 in the bush"!
