Do you know that feeling when you're out and about in town and urgently need to make a call of nature? And, of course, there isn't a public toilet in sight. This can really spoil your shopping mood or a sightseeing tour, but a solution has been found in Lübeck's town centre.

Selected restaurants and cafés offer their own toilets to the public free of charge. Catering establishments taking part in the scheme have a "Nette Toilette" sticker on the entrance door. Which means you can have a relaxing time visiting the city or doing a spot of shopping.

Besides the stickers there are also flyers marking public WCs and "Nette Toilette". The flyers are available in German and English and can be found at all major contact points for citizens and tourists. The Hanseatic city of Lübeck was the first community in Schleswig-Holstein to introduce the "Nette Toilette" scheme and is a pioneer in the region.

So far, the following catering establishments are taking part in the "Nette Toilette" scheme.
