Public toilets in Germany are women's and men's toilets. The exeption are planes, trains and very small eating establishments (the law in Hamburg says: up to 50 squaremeters eating area) that have only one toilet stall, which obviously has to be unisex.

Toilets at the workplace are gendered in bigger organisations. Small companies - a small office or something like a car repair shop - sometimes have only one toilet. In the past, this fact has been used as an argument why a small repair shop can't possibly take on a woman as an apprentice to become a mechanic, because "where would she go to pee?!?".
