Find a public toilet near you quickly.
On December 17, 2013 the Council of the City of Cologne decided to adopt a new concept for public toilets in Cologne. The aim of this toilet concept is to improve the provision of public toilets throughout the city. This also includes their integration into the cityscape, because only where there are clean and well-maintained toilets is the cityscape attractive to citizens and tourists. Furthermore, the focus is also on considering the concerns of people with disabilities in particular. The disabled toilets in Cologne can be used free of charge with a eurokey.
For some public toilets an amount of €0.50 is charged for their use. Many of the toilets are also available free of charge. Whether a toilet is free is stated in the information on the individual toilets on the page. "Find toilets". There you will also find information on the opening times and the type of toilets.
All city toilets are provided with the best available technology. Furthermore the toilets are fully accessible to people with physical disabilities as statet in DIN 18024/18040-1. Usage fee per use is €0.50. For people in possession of a euro key, the use of the city toilets is free of charge. Most of the toilet facilities are equipped with a baby changing table and a free of charge urinal with separate access.
In addition to the city toilets, the people of Cologne and visitors to the City of Cologne can use toilets in public facilities. The search function will tell you in which public buildings there are freely accessible toilets. The toilets in the cemeteries are also open to the public. The use of these toilets is free.
As part of the HappyToilet Cologne-concept, hotels, restaurants and bars also make their toilets available to the public during their opening times. For this they receive an annual expense allowance and can also charge a fee of up to €1.00. In this programme there are also toilets that are accessible to the disabled - these are shown in the toilet search.
