Vienna Off The Beaten Path Tips by tiabunna
Vienna Off The Beaten Path: 475 reviews and 887 photos
A hasty translation, before going further: a “dunny” is the plain unvarnished Australian vernacular name for a toilet. Now, in Australia, one sure way to have people look at you very strangely would be to take a camera into the dunny with ‘intent to photograph’! Chances are you’d get yourself arrested, if someone didn’t first take a swing at you! VTer Globetrott knows his city well: he also has a very dry sense of humour, so I’m unsure whether he was simply pointing me toward one of Vienna’s more unlikely sights or testing my resolve as a keen VTer! Either way, this has to rank among the stranger VT tip projects I’ve undertaken..
In the main photo, you see the entry to the “Opera Toilets”, at the metro across the road from the Staatsoper. As befits the locale, these must be among the most ‘cultural dunnies’ in the world. Dare you look at photo 2 to see what’s inside the ‘gents’ that makes it so?
I’ve listed this tip under “Off the beaten path” because at least half the VT members are precluded from going for a recital! Oh, well, the other half of the facility is in that category for me….. though, as you’ll read from the poster in photo 3 it seems the “ladies room” also is specially fitted for performances! You’ll also notice on the poster photograph that the gents’ fittings were originally equipped with large lips – Globetrott advised that these were removed following protests.
