Top 6 toilet vistas

The toilet is somewhere that we all spend a lot time pondering and thinking. In fact, ChaCha has calculated that we spend on average up to 92 days on the toilet in our life, but where is the most breathtaking or picturesque toilet you have ever used? A trip to one of the following top 6 toilets will certainly leave you with a memory never to be forgotten!

1. Frankfurt’s Commerzbank

Located on the 49th floor of an 850ft building with full length glass windows these urinals are sure to give men a full vista to enjoy. Luckily, no other buildings in Frankfurt are anywhere nearly as high so you don’t have to worry about any peeping Tom’s!

3. Alcatraz, San Fransisco Bay

During the 29 years that Alcatraz held some of the  most dangerous people there were 14 attempts to escape from the prison involving 36 inmates. Perhaps the guards used this toilet to good effect to scupper these attempted escapes! This unique toilet has a 360 degree view of San Fransisco Bay!

4. Mount McKinley, Alaska

Even mountain climbers need to take a break from their climbing. This throne beats the other holes in the snow but offers little protection from the freezing drafts! I’m sure you’ll agree this is definitely the coolest toilet here! (sorry)
