The bathroom at the John Michael Kohler Arts Center in Sheboygan, Wisconsin USA


Coldest public bathroom on earth in Nome Alaska. Around 5 degrees there now.


Definitely the toilet on the top of Mt. Whitney in California! Highest toilet in the lower 48



2 others come to mind:

  1. The Men’s bathroom in the Madonna Inn in San Luis Obispo, California. A quirky hotel with a funny, waterfall urinal and each room has a different “theme”.
  2. The Men’s restroom in the Spoon Restaurant in Budapest, Hungary where the wall f the restroom is glass and you have a sweeping panoramic view of the City while peeing!

Pretty much any bathroom in Italy, paid or free public restrooms. Carefully overseen by the e bathroom attendants and ready to offer Americans good travel tips. Super clean and smells of local bread and wine in the air. Special mention the public restroom in Anna Capri off the Amalfi Coast.

John Michael Kohler art center in Sheboygan, WI, mens room. The bowls are so immaculately designed (yet fully functional) that you feel bad using them!

Not so much remarkable as memorable, these photos portray two examples of the typical toilets found in Eritrea & Ethiopia in the late ‘60s & early’70s when I was living in Asmara. The example in the top photo is made of porcelain, featuring two “pedestals” to stand on while squatting. The lower photo shows a hole in a cement floor with an adjacent raised area and a pair of pedestals marked with functionless diagonal slashes that mimic the rippled surfaces of the porcelain originals, which presumably were designed to ensure dry surfaces for one’s feet. This mimicry is well known to archaeologists, in which materials created by a less advanced society to copy examples from a more advanced technology slavishly mimic functionless features as well as essential ones.


Kind of similar to ones I encountered in the countryside in Turkey.

You have completely missed many fantastically elegant public bathrooms in Paris, see 9 Instagrammable Paris Restrooms You Have to Take a Selfie In - Frenchly .


The men’s room at the Peninsula Hotel in Hong Kong, designed by Philippe Stark to make it feel like you’re peeing into Kowloon Bay from the top of a skyscraper. The women’s side is fancy but does not offer the same thrill.

The stall door in a restaurant in Fes, Morocco, in the Medina.


The Greenwall bathrooms in the conservatory at Longwood Gardens in Chester County, Pennsylvania are not to be missed.
