Our Toilet: In the West


🤝✨ This week, we’re unraveling the tale of one of our 60+ toilets, perched at the edge of Germany’s frontier near Isenbruch, Nieuwstadt, and Susteren. 🗺️🚀 Did you know? Germany has its own ‘extreme points,’ and our toilet proudly claims its spot at the westernmost tip, embracing the quirky history of the Selfkant region. 🤔🏞️ 

Imagine standing on the boundary, straddling two nations – Germany and the Netherlands, with Belgium just a stone’s throw away! 🇩🇪🇳🇱🇧🇪 The narrow stretch connecting to the west is a mere 4.8 km before Belgian vibes take over. Thankfully, in our EU family, borders are more about signposts than barricades! 🚧🤝 

Need a pit stop? Fear not! Our wheelchair-accessible toilet awaits, nestled next to a quaint rain shelter. 🌦️🚽 Pro tip: If it’s locked, give Isenbruch a quick ring – blame it on some misguided souls who thought vandalizing public toilets was a splendid idea. 😑📞 

Step inside our westernmost oasis – equipped with a sleek, white dry separating toilet chair, a urinal, and two spacious, tinted windows for that perfect natural glow. 🪞🌈 It’s large enough for wheelchair navigation, though we must confess, our last visit revealed a missing handrail or two. 🤷‍♂️🤷‍♀️ 

If you’re ever in the area, don’t miss out on this uniquely designed point in Germany. Rest easy knowing an odor-free toilet adventure awaits! 🌟👃
