Follow the Google translate link above for an explanation of "Pabst" which has nothing to do with the beer brand [or don't--it makes the obvious joke better]

The grab handles on the wall are a thoughtful touch.

Thanks, crc. It seems one explanation is that that Protestants call it Pabst (pope) while Catholics call it Luther. Charming.

Also thoughtful: the metal plate that conceals the auto-flush mechanism isn't reflective, so you don't see what you look like at the moment. And there's a well-placed floor drain for the hazmat hose down.

Leave it to the Germans to invent things that are actually useful...
