Dutch public toilets

I recently took a trip to visit friends in Amsterdam and was pleasantly surprised at Dutch
standards for public toilettes:

  • Many public washrooms have floor to ceiling toilette stalls so that you have maximum privacy.
  • Many stalls have a dispenser that sprays sanitizer for you to wash the seat before sitting down.

When travelling to places with undesirable toilet conditions, I often re-purpose hand-sanitizer into toilet seat cleaner, so its nice to see this concept used officially.

  1. I am a big fan of these toilet stalls. I think it is so nice the door closes all the way. I am always self conscious people can see me through the regular stalls.

  2. The Dutch bathroom is the littlest room known to man. I’m talking the sort of size that would make a mythical person claustrophobic. There is marginally space to pivot and take a seat. Be that as it may, before you clumsily attempt to figure out how to easily sit, investigate your surroundings – this won’t take long. But after reading your post have to say that dutch public toilets are best.
