Installation of women's urinals in Berlin's Public Sanitation Facilities

Dear All,

Some news. Just stumbled upon an article on BBC on women urinals in Berlin.
See here: www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-40899902

The Berlin State Governement has developed (in collaboration with the private sector), the toilet concept for Berlin and plan on installing female urinals in public toilets.

I think its a great idea, hopefully it will be scaled in other states here. Saves water and I always thought it would be a suitable option particularly for girls schools.

Best regards,

Doreen

Re: Installation of women's urinals in Berlin's Public Sanitation Facilities

Interesting! Hey, any of our forum readers in Berlin, let us know when you have seen or used one of these urinals for females in your city...

This reminded me of a small user survey that was conducted with women's urinals here in Frankfurt close to where I live. See here on the forum a post from 2012 (yes I have a good memory! :-) Five years ago already):

forum.susana.org/172-urinals/926-user-su...in-frankfurt-germany

I hope this new test in Berlin will be more successful than the one in Frankfurt where they ended up dismantling those women's urinals.
