«Lucky restrooms» – No worries when moving around town

You're sure to know the feeling: you're strolling through town when you suddenly need a toilet – and there's not a single public convenience to be found. But worry no more: in future, you'll be able to just walk into a catering outlet and use the WC without having to buy any food or drink. With this new offering, Basel's cafés, shops and restaurants are breaking away from old traditions.  

Nette Toilette

Thanks to an initiative launched by the City of Basel and Basel Tourism to give our guests free and convenient access to toilets in their vicinity, you'll be able to use the facilities of any Basel café, restaurant or shop displaying the «lucky restrooms» sign at the entrance.
